For the EastEnders characters, see Phil Mitchell and Grant Mitchell.

The Mitchell Brothers are a rap duo from London, England. They consist of cousins Owura Nyanin (a.k.a. Tony Mitchell) from Manor Park and Kofi Hanson (Teddy Mitchell) from Stockwell. They were the first signing to Mike Skinner’s The Beats label and are sometimes known as the "Geezers with skills".



Tony Nyanin and Teddy Hanson named themselves The Mitchell Brothers after siblings Phil and Grant Mitchell in the British soap EastEnders.[citation needed]

As teenagers, they pressed up 1,000 remix CDs called ‘Sorted’.[citation needed]

Hanson spotted Mike Skinner from The Streets in their local Barclay's bank in Brixton, South London, soon after Skinner had released his debut album, Original Pirate Material. Hanson slipped a copy of his and Nyanin's demo CD into Skinner's bag, with his phone number on it. Skinner signed them to The Beats label and produced their first album.[citation needed] Nyanin performed with Skinner on the latter's hit single, "Fit But You Know It".[citation needed]

The Mitchell Brothers released their debut album, A Breath of Fresh Attire, on 22 August 2005.[citation needed] Their second album, Dressed For The Occasion, appeared on 19 November 2007. It was preceded by the singles, "Solemate" and "Michael Jackson". Sales for this album disappointed, with the Mitchell Brothers album being described as "still born and fresh" by Skinner.[citation needed]
