Glasgow's Jahtari label have the first authentic looking dancehall 7" out in their new Maffi series. German producer Disrupt provides the fairly simple rhythm for Mikey Murka's excellent toasting on 'Downpressor Man'. It has an 80's London soundsytem vibe. Think of old boys like Saxon sound. It has authentic C64 gunshot and police siren sounds. It's definitely warming me up on this bloody freezing autumn day. Of course you get the mandatory "Version" on the flip. without the vocals you can appreciate the simplicity of the production which is refreshing these days. Just spacious enough for the subtle effects to do their thing. Top bassline too.
