EVENT: MUNGO’S HI FI – 14.03.14



RoXX & Riki Tik (Brighton) have teamed up for a heavyweight session of roots, digital, and dubwise sounds on Friday 14th March. With very special guests, Scottish dancehall champions Mungo’s Hi Fi (featuring YT) and Adam Prescott of London’s Reggae Roast family. Supported by Dagger Sound (Brighton), Headsessions Soundsystem, and Rocksteddy.


Mungo’s Hi Fi is a sound system based in Glasgow, Scotland which follows the original Jamaican sound system tradition. After working together previously, Tom Tattersall and Doug Paine founded the group in 2000, writing, recording, producing and performing their own brand of reggae and dub music, working in collaboration with other artists and producers. They were joined in 2002 by Craig Macleod, in 2006 by Jerome Joly and in 2012 by James Whelan. Bringing up-to-date reggae, dub and dancehall sounds to Glasgow across the city in venues such as the Glasgow School of Art. The sound system quickly became part of a wider reggae network with a hectic schedule of live performance, both djing and as a sound system at clubs and events across the UK and Europe. Numerous festival appearances have seen Mungo’s brought to Glastonbury, Womad, Outlook and various other festivals where they have hosted stages and tents, performing and bringing some high-profile artists to the UK.

Nottingham’s own Adam Prescott is one the most exciting new producers in the UK Digital Roots scene. Adam has quickly established himself as one of the key players in the re-emergence of British Reggae, with first class original songs featuring the likes of Daddy Freddy, Brother Culture, Dynamite MC, Charlie P & Tippa Irie to name but a few. In addition to his releases on ‘Mindstep’ and Nice Up!’ Records he is very much in-demand for his memorable remixes for artists such as Horace Andy, Mungo’s Hi-Fi + Dub Pistols, plus many more. Add to that consistent play on BBC Radio One, 1Xtra and Rinse FM, Adam is becoming one of the hottest prospects in the revival of soundsystem music.
