In true Knockengorroch style, Mungo’s Hi Fi will be bringing their unique take on Ska, Reggae, Dancehall and Dubstep to Sunday night in the Shieling tent.
Now firm favourites in the underground music scene, the Glasgow-based sound system and production unit pull off that rare trick of making reggae/dancehall that is both original and of quality.
It all started at the turn of the millennium with two likeminded dance DJs. 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.
Highly collaborative, they started inviting visiting vocalists to their regular nights in Glasgow to hold the mic and then join them in the studio. In 2005 they founded their Scotch Bonnet label and have stayed fully independent ever since. So far, they’ve released five albums featuring an ensemble of talented artists.
They’ve worked with everyone from Sugar Minott and Ranking Joe in Jamaica to Major Lazer in America, Kenny Knots and Solo Banton in England, and Scotland’s Soom T.
With the full rig out in force, you can count on Mungo’s to round off your Knockengorroch weekend just right with some industrial strength drum ‘n’ bass.
