        Main SourceJust Hangin' OutMr Bongo

        Main Source’s paean to the simple pleasures of relaxing with friends is built over two tried-and-tested samples. The dreamy, swoony sounds of Vanessa Kendrick’s timeless ‘90% of Me is You’ is ever-present during this stone-cold classic, while Sister Nancy’s unmistakeable ‘Bam Bam’ lends several elements to the mix. Throw in some Skull Snaps and Sweet Charles and you’ve got the perfect soundtrack for a roll call of Large Professor’s nearest and dearest.

          We’ll Get To The Vocal Content In A Second, But First It’s Time To Acknowledge What A Patchwork Tapestry Of Genius ‘Peace Is Not The Word To Play’ Is In Terms Of Production.

          The Album Version Makes Its Point Pithily In A Single Verse, While The Remix, Included On The Flip Of This First Ever 7” Release, Expands On The Topic With New Verses And Some New Samples Too.

          Main SourceThink / AtomMr Bongo

          Engineered by the late, esteemed Paul C, ‘Think’ is a study in how to turn well-worn samples into something new. ‘Atom’ is arguably even better, built around a brace of elements from Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s 1967 duet ‘Little Ole Boy, Little Ole Girl’. On it, Large Pro gives the first real hints that he’ll not just be a super-producer, but a committed MC to watch.

              Asha PuthliAsha PuthliMr Bongo

              Official Mr Bongo coloured vinyl re-issue for Record Store Day 2020.Asha's debut self-titled album is a wonderful fusion of jazz, soul, blues, and disco.It includes an outstanding cover version of J.J.Cale's 'Right Down Here'; a track which Asha has made very much her own by flipping it into a deep-funk groove with sultry ethereal vocals and a drumbeat almost ready-made for samplers of the future.The record was produced in the UK by Del Newman, who had worked with Carly Simon, Cat Stevens, and Elton John to name a few.It was released on London CBS records in 1973.Shortly after the release of the record, Asha (who was born in Mumbai), was banned by the Home Office from working in the UK for a period of time due to visa issues.These obstacles along with problems with her recording contract did not hold her back.Asha moved on and continued her musical journey elsewhere.This resulted in further astounding creative works that Mr Bongo will also be presenting soon.For this special RSD special edition we have pressed on sky blue vinyl to bring out the colours of Asha's stunning dress that she wears for the cover portrait.
