Lion Rockers Hi-Fi are proud to be handing over the controls to Scotland’s legendary sound Mungo’s Hi-Fi, flying direct from the UK for one New Zealand show. Mungo’s Hi Fi will be playing a selection of dubplates, one-a-way cuts and exclusive Scotch Bonnet productions, all amplified by Lion Rockers Hi Fi’s custom built speaker stacks. Support from the full Lion Rockers crew and MC Ras Stone. This session is not to be missed.
Mungo’s Hi Fi
Mungo’s Hi Fi champion the evolution of 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 lyrical lassie Soom T.
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.
Mungo’s Hi Fi are Tom Tattersall, Douglas Paine, Craig Macleod, James Whelan and Jerome Joly, supported by the rest of the Scotch Bonnet Crew.
