JAFA MAFIA

Jafa Mafia is NZ's no.1 Reggae/Dancehall Soundsystem.  Founded in 2003, Jafa is a crew of selectors and MC's who perform on their own custom, valve 10k Hi-Fi. Selectors Tobi and Kwinton play a mix of the big tunes, Dubplates and live jams with their killer MC's. 

Inspired by Tobi's London youth of growing up immersed in the culture of 70's 80's and 90's led to 25 years of DJ experience ranging from Notting Hill Carnivals, through a 3 year residency at The End (the home of Drum and Bass), to pioneering work with the likes of Orbital, Skint Records, Wall of Sound, hosting one the first ever Hexstatic gigs at the Union Chapel, performing at the original 'Blue Note' in Hoxton and couple of back room stints at the Chemical Brothers legendary 'Heavenly Social'. 

In recent years, the Jafa Mafia crew have hosted, Washly Fire(Major Lazer), Max Glazier (Federation Sound/Rihianna tour Dj) , Gappy Ranks, YT, Junior Reid, Million Stylz and many others. Jafa Sound remains the undisputed 'soundclash' champions of Australasia and provide nonstop good vibes on the sweetest sound around.
