VINYL SOLD OUT! BUY DIGITAL

The Maffi helicopter finally takes off again for it’s next mission, this time with a Rub-A-Dub specialist team on board who are about to infiltrate unsuspecting dancefloors worldwide. Sensi expert Kenny Knots parachutes out first with a boom tune called “Herb From Grow” in his backpack, while special agent Speng Bond – with the license fi toast – is keeping up the vibes in the flying command center with “Tann Up Solid”. The Ninja MC team Rub-A-Dub Market, who usually run tings and sound system special ops code- named “Part2Style” down in Tokyo / Japan, are at the controls of the B-side with their track “Fever”.

Inside the suitcase on the backseat is the “Robotron Riddim”, the dub version of Ranking Levy‘s “Mad Man Syle” (from “Jahtarian Dubbers Vol. 3“). Three murdah Rub-A-Dub cuts on some rare, early Maffi riddims plus one Dub – for your ears only! All produced and dubbed up by disrupt in the Jahtari bunker, with a bomb of a cover from the Superhero team Ellen G. / MyLord, who also did the masterpiece sleeve for Mr. Willamz’Dancehall Hobby EP“.

The tape heads of the Jahtari echo machines have been finetuned, the reverb modules are rewired, the bass implant is set to maximum blast and now the third episode of our ongoing series called “Jahtarian Dubbers” is ready to rock your walkman for a long time to come.

Mikey Murka went up to the dancehall again, John Frum is back with a hauntingly beautiful dub, Maffi team up with Ranking Levy from MyLord Sound while the Jahtari Riddim Force is on the loose, El Fata rinses Tapes‘ smashing “Gold Love Riddim”, disrupt dug out a forgotten treasure from the vault and Rootah runs his tube delays into the red zone.

Wearing the black belt for beatmaking and new in the Jahtari camp is Monkey Marc (who supplied a wicked instrumental to the last Roots Manuva album). Our favourite sound system champions Mungo’s Hifi are about to blow your speakers alongside veteran Jim Nastics, plus there’s a very special Rootah version of a Dub Syndicate / Adrian Sherwood classic – with Lee Perry (!) on the mic, lazergun in hand, straightjacket and all. So better pack enough supplies for an interstellar trip – this one might take a while.

Solo Banton
“Music Addict EP”

JTR10
release date: 21.09.2011
12″ vinyl, digital

VINYL SOLD OUT! BUY DIGITAL

After three deadly discs in our Maffi series Solo Banton is back with a vengeance and a full EP, flinging big tunes, the mic and nunchuks alike with the ease of a Shaolin master that would even have made Mr. Miyagi proud.

Starting the ride, “Music Addict” is setting fire to dancefloors with an almost pyromaniac delight while still nicing up the area big time. Solo continues to spin a yarn about your friendly neighbourhood robbers in “Put It Back”, his belt buckle slashing out just as hard as the beats. Witness an epic martial arts battle in “Kung Fu Master”, when ‘Black Belt’ Banton enters the dojo, riding the knucklebuster basslines crane style and shows Jet Li how it should be done. Keeping up the fighting spirit and finishing the trip is “One Of The Greatest”, written during and about the people’s struggle for freedom in the ‘Arab spring‘ earlier this year.

All tracks have been produced by disrupt, who fills in the gaps with “Arcade Addict” and “Last Blade” to guarantee an extra-smooth overall flow of the matter.

Extra-breathtaking cover by Ellen G from MyLordSound.

After the (now hard to find) “I Am A Robot“- Maffi-7inch from 2010 busybody Pupajim finally returns to our favourite brew of simple digital riddims with two large and indestructable dancehall anthems, “Double Lock” and “Trouble Again”.

Usually a highly collectible series of 7inches, this is the first ever Maffi-12″ (!), coming – in true Firehouse style – with some rather riveting and righteously ruckus-causing dubs by disrupt.

“Wonderland EP”

JTR08
release date: 30.03.2011
12″ vinyl, digital

VINYL SOLD OUT! BUY DIGITAL

Spine crunching and synapse scorching 12″-EP by Black Chow, the not-from-this- planet side project of Kevin “The Bug” Martin (King Midas, Techno Animal) and Kiki Hitomi (King Midas, Dokkebi Q), extending the intense echo-dripping vibe of their killer track “Wonderland” from the compilation “Jahtarian Dubbers Vol. 2” into a whole EP.

Following the haunting Japanese original on side A is Pupajim‘s “Signs” with its tsunami-powered vocal style, turning the riddim into something that can only be described as a “bass opera” – utterly unique, totally addictive and absolutely unheard of so far. A deadly and stripped-to-the-bone dub version is on A3.

“Danger” on side B certainly lives up to the title. Casio driven 8-bit loops run through an echo chamber on a sonic warfare weapons testing range, with Kiki Hitomi on the spaceship intercom. The dub version will definitely create a black hole in your neighbourhood. Bass music straight from the bomb shelter on Mars.

The 12″ comes with amazing artwork by Kiki Hitomi!

2 x 7″ vinyl, digital

VINYL SOLD OUT! BUY DIGITAL

After his timeless smasher “Talk To Me” (on Maffi-7″ JTR7-02) Solo Banton is back big time with two bass-charged dancehall bombs, ready to win hearts, minds and any sound clash with ease.

“No” is one of those rare and highly inspiring all-out statements that has the power to change anybody’s life into that of a Jedi knight instantly, delivered with enough straightforward energy to make sure every single line strikes home as another nail in the lid of the system’s coffin. A Rootah refix of the track already appeared on the recent “Jahtarian Dubbers Vol. 2” compilation.

For “Dancehall Nice Again” Solo Banton teams up with singer and brother-in-arms Trevor Irie on a deadly Maffi killer that should give any club safety inspector a heart attack. A 100% vibes-powered space rocket that won’t miss it’s aim, destined to detonate right on the decks.

The explosives come ready-to-DJ as a handy two disc set with each of the Dubs pressed on the other 7″, thus making mixing vocal cut and version xtra easy without the need of buying two of the same copies.

VINYL SOLD OUT! BUY DIGITAL

This relentless 7″ module by the man called Pupajim – our fave robot model of French fabrication – is number five in the ultra-collectible series programmed by the Maffi scientists. With one of the most unique vocal styles of our space age Pupajim short-wires classic Reggae sockets here with a genuine sound chip of his own design to execute the Dub-A-Dub source code with the easy flick of a mechanical wrist.

On side B Jahtari main electrician disrupt is taking a close look into the strippped down Maffi schematics, kicking it only with a minimum set of transistors to leave enough space for other MC-bots.

If good Ganja weed is also your favourite kind of electricity then this cute circuit-bent wax might shift the gear in your hips to DANCE MODE instantly while stimulating the nerdy side of your brain.

VINYL SOLD OUT! BUY DIGITAL

Maffi 7″-missile number four is ready to hit, this time with Mr. Hopeton Lindo on the mic, the man who’s responsible for one of the 80s-digital-alltime classics (“Territory”), who co-wrote Shabba Ranks’ “Mr. Loverman” – and who blows the most deadly whistle south of Shinehead.

“Rude Boy” epically unfolds over an ultra-spooky Maffi riddim, creating a haunting atmosphere unheard on a floor before. Hopeton is driving the messagge home like a bullet between ghostly synths, brutal snares and a hypnotic low end loop. Play this one out at the windswept street corners of your inner city concrete jungles.

After Afrikan Simba’s “Alternative Power” (from the “Jahtarian Dubbers Vol. 1” comp) has been in heavy circulation around the globe since long this deep 12″ is certainly one of the most awaited Jahtari releases ever.

Always floor faves during dances, Simba’s unique, powerful vibe and strong spiritual forcefield are pushing these epic tracks to the red area on the dubness scale while Rootah’s voltage-drenched production is exploring the remote corners of vast reverb landscapes and oversized scoobs alike. Better galvanize your turntables quickly, for this wax comes in extra-heavy!
