Ten bad boy digi riddims from the myspace era by Copenhagen’s Maffi crew, dubbed out into 3D space by disrupt in 2024.

Raw, minimalist CyberDancehall at its best, nostalgic and oddly futuristic at the same time, this album is quickly becoming RoboCop’s favourite playlist when going to work.
…………………………………………………………………

Maffi Promotions a.k.a. Maffi Boys come straight outta 1773 Kbh V, Copenhagen, Denmark. Originally founded in 1990 by the two homeboys, lazy body Moog and Junior the Rat, Maffi Promotions have been a steady producer of simple digital riddims for years. Hanging out in the streets of Hummel City Junior & Moog used to entertain their friends with the primitve riddims of the Maffi sound. Not knowing that they would do the exact same thing fifteen years later, they continued to believe that one day they would move up the ladder, break out of the underground and reach for the stars.

Now, after finally adopting a little sense of realism, the two homeboys have realised that stardom is nothing compared to spamming people on myspace. So the two stoners decided to get a couple of friends together and turn up the bass online. Together with their sound crew FIREHOUSE, Maffi deal nuff weed and gyals!

Maffi Boys are very dedicated to the art of playing Sensible World of Soccer, rolling weed joints with Manitou tobacco and keeping it real in a Vesterbro-style. So watch out! And don’t test! We’ll be putting up new riddims on a weekly basis. We have nuff things brewing – including a delicious chicken.
………………………………………………………………

Growing up in the streets of Hummel City, Vesterbro, MOOG learned the pleasures of sleeping late, playing Sensible World Of Soccer and picking up hot gyals at an early age. He has spent most of his life trying to master these crucial skills. Taking a break from the dog race, Moog is currently focused on reaching a higher understanding of reggae-science and weedology.

JUNIOR experienced the necessity of rolling well-made spliffs at an early age. Incorporating the aestethic heritage of Scandinavian design, he has spent most of his life perfectionizing this old and traditional art form. Junior is currently taking his ph.d. in digital reggae by buying crates of 80’s 7″ and selecting for his sound system Firehouse.

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!

“Heidi Riddim”

release date: 13.09.2013

VINYL SOLD OUT!

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.
