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.
