Jeff & Machi Jump 2003
Rotating through Taiwanese artists, I recall listening to Machi for the first time mainly because the track remixes the original song by Missy Elliot, Work It. I can’t believe this track “Jump 2003” is now twenty years old. There is another version that has Missy Elliot’s vocals in it.
They rap in my native Hokkein dialect and I would have never associate it with the style of rapping. I would have thought it was more suited for folk songs. I was certainly proven wrong.
One of the main founders, Jeff Huang is a tech entrepreneur and serial entrepreneur. Machi now remains active and has rotating members in the group.
