Groovement10: Chairman Maf

For the first in a new series of guest playlists, I approached the mighty Chairman Maf, maker of beats. His new EP, PAWN, is getting pressed up on wax at the moment, and you can buy and stream it on the Bandcamp link below. Over to Maf…

Whenever I get asked to compile music lists I always feel under pressure to keep it strictly Hip Hop, but the reality is I listen to less Hip Hop these days as I spend so long making it. The beauty of sampling is in the diversity of places that you hunt for samples which in turn educates you as you dig and leads you to music that you’d never hear otherwise.

These are a few of the tunes I’ve been playing this week.

Chairman Maf’s latest release, PAWN, is out now.

Remember Spotify, YouTube and Apple Music do not pay artists fairly – hopefully creating these playlists encourage you to buy the music from Bandcamp and other sites to support the artist.
