[Review] Scotch Bonnet Records Presents

Always active Mungo’s Hi-Fi has recently released a lot of good stuff. Starting from a new Scrub a Dub 7” we’re diving into dubstep area. Von D presents a deep and mystical tune with crucial words about analog vs digital sound [holy words for all purists ;)] perfectly mixed into the track. On the flip side we have Egoless with a ruff beat. A heavy&dark release, for true sub frequencies lovers.

Next 7” brings a modern, punchy, bass style ragga from Danny T & Tradesman and Parly B.

The last 7” is a wonderful, vintage relick of 1988 production by Naturally “Sunny Gets Blue”. Made by Stalawa and released in this French producer’s own label Foreign Mind, the track comes with great vocals by London MC Dark Angel.

This 7” is distributed by Scotch Bonnet Records.

Last but not least – a full length album, a compilation of various artists that have influenced Mungo’s Hi-Fi. Some tracks released, some dubplates, some new ones – but all highly energetic and full of vibe. If you love all kind of reggae flavors and how this music impacts modern producers, then you will love this album – from an excellent “Das Model” dub by Prince Fatty, trough rub-a-dub and old-school vibes like Stalawa’s “Buss Shot” and Naram’s “Golden Rule”, ending on murderous versions (“Dub Controller”!) and heavy pumping riddims like “Dub Invasion”. This is highly powerful stuff with energizing effect proven – I usually listen to LPs during long running and I ran almost 30 minutes extra just rewinding some tunes again and again…
