I have a deep passion for producing music, writing down melodies, and bringing other musicians together. New albums are released every few years with tracks reaching from dub to Latin and ska under the alias mabafu depending on my time and life schedule.

My passion started with a lot of travels with my mother when I was a kid and teenager buying ragga muffin tapes in the Caribbean. I started setting up parties with friends in the woods or in clubs playing records while also starting playing bass in 1999 with Dialektik Optimal. I moved more and more into an offbeat vibe that I love so much. Ever since I have been pushing for new music and playing live with fantastic guests. Why don’t you listen for yourself?
