The son and nephew of respected dub heavyweights Alpha & Omega, Alpha Steppa has been surrounded by sound system and dubplate culture from a young age. Now a talented producer in his own right, his productions connect the dots between the music that he has grown up around and the new generation of U.K. bass music of which he is a part. His dubbed out style draws upon the sounds of his musical heritage, filtered through an exploration of the newer sounds of dubstep.

Mungo's Hi Fi champion the evolution of reggae, dub and dancehall music and are re- invigorating sound system culture. They have developed formidable live shows, collaborating with foundation legends like Ranking Joe, Sugar Minott and Sister Nancy as well as top vocalists Charlie P, Solo Banton, Mr Williamz, YT, Parly B and Scotland's own lyrical lassie, Soom T. Mungo's crucial releases-- their Double LP Soundsystem Champions (2008) and Forward Ever (2011)—have topped the reggae bestsellers on numerous occasions. Mungo’s Hi Fi have toured Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Australia and the U.S. and have produced countless shows on their sound system throughout the U.K. and Europe.
Mungo's Hi Fi are Tom Tattersall, Douglas Paine, Craig Macleod, James Whelan and Jerome Joly, supported by the rest of the Scotch Bonnet Crew.

Solo Banton started MCing at the age of 11 as a younger MC on his brother's sound system King Shamma International. Experimenting with rap/hip hop for a while in his teens he finally joined Majestic Sound and was the selecta with Shadey as well as the MC with Daddy MG. In 2009, he released the blistering hit “Talk To Me” produced by Maffi and Jahtari. "Want to Go Home,” his first release on his home Reality Shock Records was followed by the smash "Walk Like Rasta" which raised him to new heights. There have been many releases since then: a blistering dancehall tune called “No,” the digital steppas style "Dancehall Nice Again," roots singles "Serious Days" and "Never Hear," and dubstep fans favorites "Burn Babylon Coke," "No Joke Ting" and "Mic Check." His exceptional album Higher Levels was released to an incredible reception, while his subsequent tour has packed out venues across the U.K. and Europe. His forthcoming EP alongside the mighty Dubkasm, is set to be released in April. Solo's live performances radiate both energy and quality, pairing his strong delivery with a serious message.

This night is also the U.S. release party for Prince Fatty VS. Mungo's Hi Fi, the much-anticipated release of the next installment from the legendary Prince Fatty (producer and engineer Mike Pelanconi) whose credits include Lilly Allen's smash “Alright Still” and has worked with Bukky Leo, Nostalgia 77, Prince Buster, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and Studio One. Mixed in his own seaside studios, in an analog haze of vintage spring reverbs, tape echoes and custom hi-grade mixing console, Prince Fatty’s own dub-soaked tunes often feature vocalist Hollie Cook (The Slits) & Mc Horseman.
