Beat Research, Humungo Edition!

Mungo's Sound
Mungo’s Sound (which will not, alas, be in attendance this Monday)

Permit me to dub the description of my partner Beat Research, the estimable Mr.Flackett

Yes the heavy heavy sounds of Mungo’s Hi Fi will be coming through BR for a special last minute stop while on tour from Scotland. The world-renowned producer is also the brains behind the venerable Scotch Bonnet record label- where modern electronic sounds collide with traditional dub reggae vibes. He has never been to Boston so lets show him what Boston is made of- We’ll be bringing some extra bass for the occasion, you bring your skanking shoes.

Speaking of “what Boston is made of” the early set (9-11pm) features %100 Boston made material in all kinds of styles and genres, courtesy of beat scholars Pacey Foster and Brian Coleman. Not just killer DJs- Pace wrote the Boston chapter of Hip-hop in America: A regional guide, and Brian, who compiled Check the Technique after years of interviewing hip-hop artists, was one of the first DJs to play undergournd hip-hop over Boston’s airwaves through groundbreaking radio shows like “School Beats” on WZBC (with the late Tim Haslett).

Should be one helluva session, folks.
