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.
