Suff Daddy is a gentleman who knows about the good life: Jamaican Kush, rare soul records and beautiful women make his day. And Suff Deezy ain’t no greedy man. On his new record he shares his music with friends like Miles Bonny, Fleur Earth, Mariama, Mar, and Jim Dunloop. We call “The Gin Diaries” a beat novel, consisting of 13 musical short stories. Some have lyrics and some have not, but they are all snaphots of the life of Suff Daddy.

“Özdemir” speaks about Suff’s penchant for Turkish breaks, “Vienna” reflects on a recent trip to Vienna and “Konnopke” is giving props to the best currywurst in Berlin. Whereas the songs with Miles, Fleur, Mariama and Mar deal with love, despair and everything in-between.

Suff Daddy: if you see him coming get the fuck out the entrance. The Berlin producer spices his drunken neo-boom bap sound with twisted Microkorg licks and sick samples. His all-time favourite rap group are Tha Alkaholiks.

Miles Bonny: singer and trumpet player from Kansas City. The missing link between D’Angelo and Willie Nelson. Miles’ music works equally well at family reunions as between the sheets. He has recorded with DJ Day, Fleur Earth and Kutiman and will release two albums on MPM in 2010, “Lumberjack Soul” and “S3” (a collabo album with Brenk from Vienna).

Fleur Earth: please stop calling her “the German Erykah Badu”. Fleur is so much more. You either love her voice and her cryptic lyrics or you think she is completely out of her mind. Fleur has released three albums on MPM and is working on a full-length project with Suff Deezy.

Mar: ladies love cool Mar. Amsterdam’s most promising young soul singer can add his magic touch to everything from dubstep to funky, but he is best known for his songs with his friend and partner Full Crate.

Mariama: Mariama’s name means god’s gift. Born in Freetown, Sierra Leone, she is living in Cologne and spreading her acoustic soul from Hamburg to Paris and back again. She has toured with Max Herre, Curse and Adé Bantu.

How “The Gin Diaries” came about:
Right after the release of “Suff Draft” (Suff’s contribution to the “Hi-Hat Club” series) MPM started to work on a follow-up to “EFIL4FFUS” (his EP with Odissee, Kissey Asplund and Miles Bonny). Suff’s harddrive was already filled up with beats, layouts and songs so we said, who’s gonna rap on it? We made a list of our favourite MCs and counted our money. But then we asked ourselves, who needs another album from a European beatmaker that features the usual indie rappers from the US? Buying 16 bars from MySpace-friends is so 2008 and rarely makes great art. Luckily we are surrounded by many talented singers in the extended MPM fam, so Suff decided to work only with artists with whom he has actually shared a Pilsette and spliff in real life.

An effort that has paid off, if you listen to “The Gin Diaries”. Prost!
