The right producer can mean the difference between a short-lived single and a career-defining classic. When Koffee linked with Frankie Music Productions in 2018, the result was the then-unknown 17-year-old’s slick social critique, Raggamuffin. The three-minute track honed in on urban realities (“Ghetto tears long river nile out here”) while paying homage to Uptown Top Ranking, (“Mi gi’ dem heart attack inna mi halter back”) and Koffee’s career has been hot ever since. Her hyper-speed flow helped her land on BBC 1Xtra’s Hot For 2019 list, and the song is among five definitive tracks on the pint-sized star’s Grammy-winning debut, Rapture.
That brilliant beat was created by Comar ‘Frankie Music’ Campbell, now a Grammy winner by proxy, who helms Frankie Music Productions. Campbell, who has over three decades in the business and a stunning ear for Reggae riddims just released his new juggling project, Epiphany, a sway-inducing dub instrumental.
