Obscure digi dub gem from 2010 by French one-of-a-kind vocal scientist Pupa Jim, available on wax for the first time since its initial short run 14 years ago.

Programmed by the Maffi crew, the Copenhagen riddim experts of the myspace era, this relentless 7″ module aged oddly well, with its futuristic AI-theme and timeless simplicity.

Jahtari main electrician disrupt is taking a closer look into the strippped down riddim schematics on the flip side, kicking it with a minimum set of transistors to wreak maximum havoc dubwise.

Maffi, Denmark’s deadliest riddim construction duo, is back with a vengeance and a fresh 6-track EP, filled with strictly original riddims that have been jammed live onto a Sansui multitrack cassette deck for that special extra grit.

Side A finds the Parisian father and son team of Colonel Maxwell and Junior Roy in top form – with Roy’s youthful melodies gracing the stone cold killer “Tuff Like We” and Maxwell issuing a gruff warning to all those who favour badness on “Bad Bwoy Style”.

On side B fast chat originator Peter King is vaguely recalling the lyrics from his forgotten classic “Bad Memory“, first penned for Fashion Records back in 1985. With this new voltage-driven riddim, the Maffi version won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

UK sound system legend Asher Senator then joins the fray with a self-titled lyrical lesson straight to the head of all those who fail to show due respect to the veterans.

With disrupt on dubbing duties and a jaw dropping hand-drawn sleeve by Kanato, Killah Tape is a crucial acquisition for any discerning selector or collector. Limited pressing!

The next edition of Jahtari’s highly collectable 7” series sees Maffi return with a big bad thing called Heidi Riddim. Built from the DNA of Sleng Teng – Heidi flips the scripts on this most classic of classics by taking it to the black keys, in a minor key style and fashion. With its thick deadly bass line at the fore, Heidi has been specifically engineered to kill tin pan sounds and discombobulate Babylonians.

First in line to ride this creation is special agent 001, Speng Bond, who comes correct to warn all those foolhardy enough to think it’s wise to ride the White Horse and ramp with cocaine. On the version, Jahtari’s chief dubologist, disrupt, investigates just how far this dangerous new strain of Sleng Teng can be mutated.

With the other 7”, also pon Heidi, it’s all about old meets new: On the A side, with Run Di Session, the 16 year-old Parisian phenomenon Junior Roy demonstrates exactly why he has been creating such a wave amongst discerning dancehall fans lately. His distinctive vocal style bears uncanny similarities to the likes of Little Kirk and Yami Bolo at their prime, circa 1987.

On the flip, the veteran thoroughbred Lord Sassafrass gallops across the riddim with the same panache that saw him rule dancehalls across Jamaica in the 1980s. Lyrically, the legendary Sassa offers a compelling case for why the Horseman style he and his crew pioneered stands head and shoulders above the overhyped slackness being peddled by many today.

Deadly disc charged with raw sound system vibes by the man called Mr. Williamz on a bunch of heavyweight Maffi riddims, coming straight from the Copenhagen underground. With scorchers like “Sit Down Steady”, the must-have “Where The Man Come From” and the anthem “Dancehall Hobby” it becomes clear very quickly that this man’s favourite hobby ain’t stamp collecting…

To give it a nice sound-system-tape feel the tunes have been faithfully run to cassette and back, Tapes dubbed up the Kriminel Riddim live, the bassline in the Hobby Riddim is by Pupajim and disrupt rolled it all up into a big one in the end.

Like the “Tann Up Solid EP” this one also comes with a masterpiece of a cover from Ellen G. / MyLord – a genius tribute to the veterans of sound system culture! Boomshot record – not to be missed!

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.

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.

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.

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.
