The continually-popular “Sound System Champions” of 2008, is finally available on CD on the Scotch Bonnet imprint. Scotland’s number one reggae dancehall sound system and bona-fide institution, Mungos Hi Fi have been releasing hits since 2001 when their killer tracks ‘Wickedness’ and ‘Ing’ featuring Brother Culture first took the world by storm, getting heavy plays by Jah Shaka, the late great John Peel and Mr Scruff.
At this point in their life the trio have truly earned the title of Veteran Selectors and are one of the most in-demand sound systems in Europe. Drawing faithfully on foundation reggae, dub and dancehall music from the last 50 years, their genuinely fresh sound spans a broad selection of musical stylings from ska and rocksteady, through roots and steppers, to rub a dub, digital roots and dancehall. As with their live sound, powered by their own enormous, homebuilt PA, their inspirational forward thinking productions continually push reggae boundaries into new groundbreaking frontiers. ‘Sound System Champions’ features an onslaught of world class reggae MCs and singers, including Top Cat, Tippa Irie, Ranking Joe, Soom T, Kenny Knots, Mikey Murka, Ras Charmer, Aya Faith, Suncycle, MC Ishu and Marina P, and is as huge as Mungo’s infamous speaker stacks.
