This album is all about racism, sex, love, alcohol, religion and err… meatballs.
– Chairman Maf
Chairman Maf’s work has become more widely known over the last couple of years thanks his emotive, cinematic approach to beatmaking. New LP Alcoholic Soul showcases this perfectly, and in a similar vein to Karriem Riggins’ Headnod Suite, doesn’t just loop beats for beats’ sake, but rather creates narratives from meticulously chosen samples. In short, it bangs.
You can also hear Maf’s work on Alcoholic Tosser and Prawns from the new Dirty Dike LP on High Focus, Sucking On Prawns In The Moonlight.
