The Allergies

Style: Funk, Soul, Disco, Hip-Hop, Breaks


The Allergies is made up of Bristol-based scratch DJs, Moneyshot & Rackabeat. In 2016 they dropped their debut album, As We Do Our Thing, on Jalapeno Records. It topped charts (third place in the iTunes’ hip-hop section, number one at Juno!), and got ‘Album of the Day’ props over at BBC 6 Music.
Like their DJ sets, the LP mixes all their funk, soul, disco, hip-hop and breakbeat influences into a seriously cool stew.
