LP version. Glasgow-based soundsystem and production unit, Mungo's Hi Fi, announce More Fyah, a stunning collaboration with UK singer and MC, Eva Lazarus. A genre-melding masterpiece, More Fyah traverses between reggae, dub, dancehall, and other bass flavors. Eva seamlessly tackles every track with her unique lyrical flow and wide vocal range, matched by Mungo's infectious signature sound. From the rocksteady relick of "Dub Be Good To Me", the ragga mash-up title track, the summery riddims of "Light As A Feather", featuring London reggae artist Kiko Bun, to the roots sampling "Babylon Raid", featuring Jamaican reggae legend Max Romeo, Mungo's have a sound that is deeply rooted in dub and reggae's lineage, backed by the sharp, sassy, and slick vocals of Eva Lazarus.

Raised out of one of the most musically creative cities in the UK, Mungo's Hi Fi have made a massive contribution to Glasgow's musical story with a respectful nod to Jamaican sound system tradition. Founded in 2000, Mungo's was formed by two like-minded DJs, inspired by the free party scene but following the Jamaican tradition of King Tubby and Jah Shaka. True to reggae/dancehall's DIY ethos, they built their first sound from speakers found in a skip and began producing on an old Atari. They founded the Scotch Bonnet Records label in 2005. Today Mungo's Hi Fi's three DJs, Craig, Doug and Tom play all over the world, assisted by the team at Scotch Bonnet Records: all committed to spreading their philosophy of serious, seismic productions plus easy-going democratic dancehall fun. Highly collaborative, they've worked on remix projects with Leftfield, Coldcut, Submotion Orchestra, Kahn, and Prince Fatty in the UK to Major Lazer in the US and are currently expanding links with East African Records based in Uganda. This is Eva's first full-length album, having recently featured on tracks with Swindle, Zed Bias, Jus Now, and Gentlemans Dub Club. A multi-genre artist, she has been making waves worldwide.
