      Top reggae record

      The chilly drunk streets of Glasgow may seem distant from the roots of reggae but this album: Sound System Champions by Mungo's Hi-Fi is one of the best reggae releases I've come across this year, it's like a history of the music in that it covers everything from reggae, ska, dancehall, rub a dub and even a bit of jazzy hip hop thrown in, it features big name after big name and starts off in an intriguing way with the smokey jazz bar voice of Parisian Marina P before moving on to Kenny Knots and Don't Let Them Break Your Heart.. this is the very essence of old school roots reggae but it doesn't hang around for long as it moves on until you get to an upbeat frenzie of "Ruff mi Tuff" by London artist Tippa Irie, at first I thought what a quality track to dance to but after listening to it a few times, it's the one track which really wears on me.

      Mungo's Hi-Fi are doing well for themselves, constantly touring the UK - they also have slots at big name reggae festivals in Poland and Switzerland later in the year. The album is available on pre-release at the moment and I think it's going to be a big hit and since I asked for it to be added as a suggestion, it's already become Radio 1 Scotland's Album of the Month. The album will be properly launched at the end of November
