Mungo's Hi Fi
Scotch Bonnet Mix
Flying the flag for reggae in Scotland, Mungo's Hi Fi lay down nuff fine riddims from their arsenal in this exclusive studio mix
Since 2002, Mungo's Hi Fi Soundsystem have been showing big love for all things reggae, dub, ska and dancehall by releasing some seriously high-grade music — not to mention regularly shaking Glasgow's foundations with their lofty speaker stacks.
Following three outings on London's Dubhead label, the lads decided to set up their own imprint in 2005 — the wonderfully titled Scotch Bonnet Records. There's been a slew of 7"s and 10"s so far, all as hot as the label name suggests, with their unstoppable Belly Ska Riddim blazing its way across the UK, America, Germany and Poland. And there's no let up in pressure; next month sees their huge Mary Jane Riddim unleashed on a series of singles that feature vocals from Top Cat, Carl Meeks, Kenny Knots, Mikey Murka, Soom T and El Fata. There's also a Mungo's Hi Fi album on the way, due out on Scotch Bonnet in the not-to-distant future. In fact, they tell us they're sitting on so much new material that they don't know what to do with it all!
For those unable to catch Mungo's Hi Fi on their European travels in the coming months, they've kindly supplied Spannered with this killer studio mix, packed full of unreleased Scotch Bonnet goodness. As you can tell, they've been feeling the current dubstep flavours too — hold tight for releases later in the year!
