Mattafix Does Good

First review! Has iTunes actually listened to its users? This truly is a miracle. They've had cover versions and random promotional singles for over a year, but they finally got this album (released in 2005, not 2008!). I'm sure the fans and reviewers will be pleased. Well played, iTunes, this pacifies me temporarily. I had to import this used from Amazon, but it was worth it. "Big City Life" is a truly amazing song and was featured in one of the FIFA soundtracks in recent years. Hip-Hop/Rap doesn't really fit here, it's more of a Reggae/R&B album. Other standout tracks include "Ganster Blues," "Passer By," "Clear and Present Danger," "I to You," and the final song, "Cool Down the Pace," the closest thing to a reggae track. The album varies widely and the singer does a wonderful job of setting a cool mood across the whole thing. Start with "Big City Life" and see what you think--it's an epic song.

Hidden Gem of an album

Mattafix is smooth and intoxicating. If you haven't heard them you'll wonder why you haven't, and if you have, I know you can't get enough. My favorites are "Big City Life" ( of course) and "To and Fro". I'm glad they are finally on itunes. Better late than never. Treat yourself to Mattafix.

Truly Amazing Album

Finally on iTunes! Buy this album right now. You'll be glad you did. It amazes me that no one in America has ever heard of these guys. Don't just get Big City Life and Gangster Blues, the entire ablum is fantastic.

Though Mattafix's Marlon Roudette and Preetesh Hirji come from different backgrounds (Roudette grew up on the island of St. Vincent, where he studied the steel drums, while Hirji was born to Indian parents in London and was fascinated by the computer), as a band they play urban, poppy music that fits in perfectly on European radio. After meeting each other one day in a recording studio, the two became friends and decided to start a band. Calling themselves Mattafix, a derivative of the West Indian...
