Mungo's Hi Fi Ft. Bad Mambo - East Africa Mixtape

Wake the small town, tell the people, Mungo's Hi Fi are back for a degree show special featuring Eva Lazarus live! Mungo’s Hi Fi champion the evolution reggae, dub and dancehall music and are re-invigorating soundsystem culture. They have developed formidable live shows, collaborating with foundation legends like Ranking Joe, Sugar Minott and Sister Nancy as well as top vocalists on the scene at the moment including Charlie P, Solo Banton, Mr Williamz, YT and Scotland’s own, Soom T.

EVA LAZARUS: Big afro, big voice, big beats and big bass is what singer/songwriter/emcee Eva Lazarus is all about! Her musical flavours span across genres from Reggae to DnB, Jungle to Hip Hop, Soul and beyond! She has amassed a sea of collaborations which include, Stanton Warriors, Etherwood, Dub FX, Mr Woodnote, Danny Byrd, Jus now, Gotsome and Serocee.

Mungo’s was the brainchild of two likeminded dance DJs at the turn of the millennium, inspired by King Tubby, Prince Jammy and the UK’s Unity Sounds. True to reggae/dancehall’s DIY ethos, they built their first sound system from speakers found in a skip and began producing on an old Atari. The live work feeds directly into the studio productions. Mungo’s crucial releases, mainly on their own Scotch Bonnet label, have topped the reggae bestsellers on numerous occasions. ‘Soundsystem Champions’ their Double LP released in 2008 has turned many on to their sounds and the massive ‘Forward Ever’ from 2011 gave a preview of what is to come on singles and EPs. The releases have been supported by tours in Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Australia and the USA, as well as countless live shows on their soundsystem touring throughout the UK and Europe.

A sound system, a production house and a unique way of doing things – Mungo’s Hi Fi are always looking for new collaborators and people who share their vision. It’s a vision based on taking music more seriously than yourself and pushing forward while never forgetting where you’re from.
