Exalting his passion for good ganja and dancehall reggae.

Sampler

Essex raggamuffin rudeboy Charlie P started out singing motown and blues, but coming from an area surrounded by UK Jamaican culture it was reggae that really inspired him and at the age of 11 he was singing with the Goldmaster Allstars.

Mungo's Hi-Fi feat Charlie P - You See Me StarNow in his early twenties he has been a part of the Mungo’s Hi Fi cohort’s for some five years or so and during this time he has really made a mark in his own right on the UK and European dancehall reggae scene with much of this told in his own words on the track ‘Traveller’.

This album verges on a sort of ‘best of’ by drawing on work that has been out there a while and people may be familiar mixed with a couple of new cuts and showcases him across styles ranging from roots reggae and dancehall to modern bass music.

The album opens with the title track in traditional dancehall style on a reworking of the ever popular The Answer riddim with Charlie P professing his love of the dance and all it entails but is then followed by ‘Music Politics’ that bemoans the politics between different soundsystems and calls for them to unite and revel in their love of the music.

‘Society’ and ‘Nice It Up’ bend more toward the dubstep side of things, with the latter again calling for unity at the dance, while Societies foreboding deep bass tones equally match the dark lyrics on urban life.

As you can now come to expect from Mungo’s the riddims are varied and well produced and with Charlie despite what people’s views are on a white guy with a Jamaican accent he is a man being true to himself while exalting his passion for good ganja and dancehall reggae.
