Radio Riddler is Brian Fast Leiser and Frank Benbini from the NYC band Fun Lovin' Criminals. They are lovers of Reggae/Dub music. They began their musical journey by remixing many artists in a unique Reggae/Dub style.
Radio Riddler's first release, 'Marvin Reggae', was an EP of Reggae cover versions of 5 of Marvin Gaye's most beloved songs.
