Following on from their 2011 release ‘Forward Ever’, ‘Serious Time’ is a record that threads together all aspects of soundsystem bizness, from Studio One style live brass to digital bass bangers. Album opener and lead single ‘Serious Time’ abounds with feel-good reggae vibes that make for a promising summer jam, while further stand-out tracks include the dub-heavy ‘Bike Rider’, which combines a driving bassline, hypnotic percussive patterns and distinctive vocals from French dubber Pupajim for a compelling urban feel.
Having developed a name for themselves flexing their soundsystem talents across the arenas of reggae, dub and dancehall, this latest album sees Mungo’s Hi-Fi up their game, proving once again that it’s not about the volume - it’s all about the vibes.
