Recently found this nice Interview with legendary Producers Mafia & Fluxy on the awesome Shimmy Shimmy Blog.

How did you both get into music initially?

In our family home my uncle had a sound system called Wizard Hi-Fi. We used to play on the sound system everyday when we came home from school.

What was the sound system scene like when you started? Could you give us an idea what it was like to grow up in the era of legendary UK sounds?

Yes, we had huge sound clashes with sounds like Fatman, Jah Shaka, Sir Coxsone Sound, they were the top 3 sounds in London at the time.
