Twin Of Twins To Release CD & Prepares For Africa

Prominent comedic duo turned deejays, Twin of Twins will aim to satisfy fans ahead of the release of their milestone volume of the Stir It Up series with a prelude to the highly-anticipated CD.

The Twins, Patrick ‘Curly Lox’ Gaynor and Paul ‘Tu-Lox’ Gaynor are planning to unveil volume 10 of their skit-laden series, Stir It Up at the end of this month. However, the duo will release a prelude to Stir It Up Vol. 10 this week, dubbed Stir It Up: Vol. 9 ½.

According to Patrick Gaynor, this mini-version of the series will feature their unique takes on today’s hot topics within Dancehall music and Jamaican pop culture, condensed into 10-15 minutes of comedy. Reports are suggesting that those topics include the cheating scandal involving Mr. Vegas’ baby mother and Captain Barkey’s untimely death in New York.

Gaynor branded Stir It Up: Vol. 9 ½ as a teaser to Stir It Up: Vol. 10 while revealing that the CD’s release was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy’s arrival in the island.

As for what content Stir It Up: Vol. 10 has to offer, Gaynor gave little detail, given that they are still editing parts of the compilation. However, he revealed that their milestone edition features actual stories and is more of an audio movie instead of being a compilation of radio interviews and satirical court hearings like past CDs.

Stir It Up: Vol. 9, release in June 2011, featured mock court hearings replicating some of Dancehall’s biggest controversies at the time, including Buju Banton’s conviction on drug charges, Bounty Killer’s alleged ‘hammer’ incident involving an ex-girlfriend and Vybz Kartel’s supposed stronghold on Jamaican society.

Meanwhile, Twin of Twins are continuing to hit the studio as they’ve found success with singles such as So Much Things To Say and Jah Is (featuring Jahvinci), which have been getting heavy rotation, according to the duo.

Furthermore, the Twins will be taking their act to various continents at the start of 2013 as they will host shows in Africa as well as North America (Canada and the United States) between January and March.
