Mattafix are a UK R&B/hip hop group made up of two members, Marlon Roudette and Preetesh Hirji. Their sound is a mix of hip hop, soul, reggae and dancehall.

Mattafix released their first single “11.30 (Dirtiest Trick In Town)” as a limited edition single on Buddhist Punk Records on 31st January 2005. Their first full single, “Big City Life”, released by EMI on 8th August 2005 was a considerable hit, managing a #15 peak on the official UK chart, a big feat for a UK R&B/hip-hop group, and topped the charts in Germany, Czech, Austria and other European countries. Their third single, “Passer By” was released on 24th October 2005, unfortunately missing the UK top 75. The single preceded their debut album “Signs of a Struggle”, which was released a week later on 31st October 2005.

The group have toured with the likes of Jamiroquai and Joss Stone on their UK tours. The fourth single from their debut album, “Signs Of A Struggle” was “To & Fro”, which features backing vocals from former Sugababe Siobhan Donaghy. The single was released as a download only single on 13th March 2006.

Big City Life debuted at #19 on the Australian Music Charts and reached #1 on the New Zealand Singles Chart.

Signs Of A Struggle was a Triple J feature album in April 2006.

    Big City Life по-настоящему крута, одна из тех редких песен, которая объединит вместе любого элитария с любым же школьником, люблю такое

    Why their second album never got the love and attention it deserved is something I really can't understand. Ryhthm & Hymns <3
