(This text has been machine translated.) It was time for Mungo's Hi Fi to release a proper Dub-Album. The three Scots produce their fingers sore, put out the coolest albums and EPs in staccato and save up Dub?! Okay, "Serious Time" got 2014 a Dub-Pendant, but that's about it. But now it's over: "Antidote“(Scotch Bonnet), the new Dub-Meta-Work of the Glasgower is here. "Meta" because it contains ten Dub-Versions of titles from Mongo's oeuvre. So the meta-study of the existing Mungo's productions - which brings us right to the title: “Antidote”. Corona sends its regards. But the Mungo's crew does not refer their antidote to the evil virus, but "it's an antidote to all the stress and restriction of modern life". Aha, there seems to be a bit of frustration. No wonder. For a sound system that lives from festivals and parties, the last few months should have been an imposition. Anyone who knows the Scots from live performances will know that they rock any party. Their mix of old school dancehall and modern bass music is simply irresistible. I've already spent the most beautiful sound system nights in the bass waves of Mungo's Hi Fi. So I was all the more astonished that “Antidote” is NOT being party-music. Dub is obviously serious business for the three guys from Glasgow. Almost academically, they dissect their rhythms here, rigorously cut them down and reduce them to drum and bass. Quite puristic and consistent. Unexpected, but not bad. "It's a sonic journey that will leave all who enter cleansed and replenished on the other side," they promise. A purification cure, in a way. This is exactly the cure they have given their music and the result is a Dub-Catharsis. Pure and clean, as Gregory would call it. May we start cleansed into the newly won freedom.
