Initially inspired by Sly And Robbie, brothers Mafia (b. Leroy Heywood, 1962, London, England bass) and Fluxy (b. David Heywood, 1963, London, England drums) are the UK’s foremost rhythm section. They have pursued careers as solo artists and as part of the Instigators. Early encouragement came via Uncle Wizard’s sound system and then Fatman, who released the Instigators’ 1977 debut, ‘Let’s Make Love’. By 1985, they had enjoyed several hits and gained valuable experience backing touring Jamaican acts, quickly coming to terms with the new digital technology. In 1987, they visited Jamaica, building rhythm tracks for Bunny Lee, Blacker Dread, King Jammy and Exterminator. That year they started their own self-titled label, producing Cinderella, Billy Melody, Sugar Minott and, later, Private Collection (‘Dreamer’). Their debut album, 1990’s Dancehall Connection Volume 1, featured such diverse talents as General Trees, King Kong and General Levy. The same year, Mafia And Fluxy returned to Jamaica, providing many notable hits for Black Scorpio, Jammys, Gussie Clarke, Mikey Bennett, Mr Doo and Roy Francis. In the UK, they backed Maxi Priest and Lloyd Brown, and were voted Producers Of The Year, the Instigators winning the Best Reggae Band Award. On their own label, tracks by Tiger (‘Winery’), Gregory Isaacs, Johnny Osbourne, Sugar Black, Cornell Campbell, Sanchez (‘Whip Appeal’) and Sugar Minott were released at regular intervals. In 1992, Mafia issued his debut album, Finders Keepers, while hits by Cobra (‘Off Guard’), Dirtsman, Poison Chang (‘Do Me A Favour’), Sweetie Irie, Red Dragon, Cutty Ranks (‘Armed And Dangerous’), Tenor Fly and Chaka Demus And Pliers (‘Wining Machine’) witnessed no shortage of success throughout 1992/3. Back in Jamaica, Mafia And Fluxy laid down further tracks for Bobby Digital, Penthouse and Stone Love, with whom they won a Jamaican award for Best Juggling [mixing] Record. By 1994, they were remixing artists such as Boy George, Barrington Levy and the Rhythm Kings, Mega Banton’s ‘First Position’ was a number 1 hit and they had become one of the most in-demand rhythm sections in reggae music, even occasionally pairing with Sly (Mafia) and Steely (Fluxy).
