Rapattack was first established by the Master MC and Mellow Milt back in 1984. Having both dabbled with promotions and with the Master MC DJing as an ongoing hobby, they decided to put their experience together and develop a new concept in partying and clubbing.
This was all based around a state of the art Sound-system, together with the new New York styled musical presentation in the form of mastermixing on the then rare Technics SL 1200 turntables.
After deciding on the name Rapattack, underground house parties on Saturday nights were what really got the ball rolling and very soon warehouse parties attracting over 5000 people were playing a part in building the name, and building a regular Rapattack crowd - "the Rapattack family!" which today is truly multicultural.
"Basically it all started and was all about putting on great parties, with great music for music lovin funky people in this great city of London!"
Value for money, 100% professionalism, classy people and music that is appealing to all- being played on crystal clear, near perfect, quality sound has always been the trademark of Rapattack.
AND THE REST IS HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carnival music policy
Rapattack started out as a 100% soul/funk DJ outfit which today has developed into one of the most well known names in the British Club/Dance & music industry being able to specialise & cater for all ages & various musical tastes, including Soul, Jazz, Oldskool Hip-hop (early rap), U.K. & U.S. Garage amongst many others. However, Rapattack's claim to fame is due mainly to what we can only describe as the 'party style', which is a mixture of classic soul, funk and popular dance tracks ranging from the 70's to the present day. With this vast amount of musical knowledge and expertise to hand, it's no wonder why Rapattack are continuously chosen to provide DJ's and sound systems for corporate clients as well as private parties, functions, weddings & events.
