-- MUNGO'S HI-FI -- DUB & BASS ARENA --


Mungo's Hi Fi champion the evolution reggae, dub and dancehall music and are re-invigorating sound system 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. 'Sound system 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 sound system 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.

-- JAH YOUTH -- DUB & ROOTS ARENA --


The name of the sound speaks for itself and watching this sound system in operation is to behold some true masters at work.

Originally set up 1975, Jah Youth Sound system is today one of the top roots sound systems in the United Kingdom and Europe. Although based in the UK, they have traveled extensively throughout Europe and Africa taking a conscious and cultural reggae music to the youths. The sound has a minimum crew of 10 persons among them there are singers D.J,s operators and selectors.

You have also probably heard their D.J’s Culture Marvellous & Prince Liv-I-Jah chat lyrical consciousness, Ras Echo sing angelic tones and melodies for Rastafari. Bro. Bud the flag bearer. Brother Locks-Lee Selects all your favourite reggae tunes from yesteryear to today, and Jah Youth operate and mix around riddims to create that extra special atmosphere.
You will have seen their clean customised, red painted boxes standing strong, tall and upright, piled high in the dancehalls and bellowing out those black experience sounds of Rastafari Roots and Culture.

Jah Youth Sound have toured internationally with famous artists such as Dr. Aliman-Tado, Burning Spear, Augustus Pablo, Gregory Isaacs, and Third World, and have played alongside all the top UK roots sound systems including Jah Shaka, Fatman, Quaker City and Moambassa – to mention a few- AND more recently, the new wave of digital dub sounds!

However, over the years most of the sound systems the world-over seem to be struggling to remain true to the Roots of Reggae music culture and have changed with these trendy ‘times’.

This is not so with Jah Youth they have maintained that core element of Roots Music and Reggae Culture, and it is probably this that you have found so attractive, Inspiring and captivatingly good!

They enjoyed massive success in the 1970’s, and 1980’s and now are on top of their chosen profession in the 1990’s.

WHY ARE THEY CALLED ‘ROOTS AMBASSADORS’?

In 1987 Jah Youth Sound had a calling to Africa. As they headed for Kenya it would soon became evident they would have to fly in the whole Sound System and before long the were playing music in city halls from Kenya to Zimbabwe to Ghana.
Their success was such that they were named “Roots Ambassadors” a name that has stuck with them ever since.

In 1992 when they returned to the U.K. It was half of the sound system that came back. The other half was left with a group of native Kenyan youths called Jah Youth Crew, adopted by Jah Youth during their time there. They continued to maintain that root of reggae culture and preserve that works set up there.
