Regarded in the scene as the go-to record label for classic, rare and hard-to-find gems in Latin, Brazilian, African, Reggae and Jazz music; MR BONGO for over 25 years has featured a recording roster that has established itself as one of the preeminent record labels in the UK if not the world.
Featuring artists such as Terry Callier, Seu Jorge, Maros Valle, Ebo Taylor and Prince Fatty, Mr Bongo have been sourcing and releasing records that have consistently smashed up parties worldwide since 1989. Thus, and in partnership with our good friends at the Bongo Club (no relation…currently), we are stoked beyond measure to present for one night the legendary MR BONGO.
Featuring MR BONGO with support from SOULSVILLE in the main room, and an upstairs takeover from local reggae and dub aficionados Jofis (Mighty Oak Records) and Fabz (I-Tal Faya/Dub Combe Records), we expect this to be the SOULSVILLE of 2017!

It began in Venezuela 30 years ago – filling suitcases with amazing latin records to bring back to Europe. And it continued ever since; private warehouse visits in the US, dusty back street basements in South America, houses and garages in Africa, and lesser-known spots in Europe and Asia. Mr Bongo bring eclectic and unexpected Brazilian, Latin, African, Jazz, Soul, Reggae and Psychedelic flavours to the dance-floor with a seemingly bottomless stock of weird and wonderful selections.
