FREE: Mr Bongo – 2011 Sampler

To celebrate the launch of their slick new website, the legendary Mr Bongo are giving away a ten-track sampler of some of their finest music for FREE. The giveaway is for a limited time only, but all you need to do is visit their site and the music is all yours.

The sampler includes tracks from the likes of Hollie Cook, Prince Fatty and the Incredible Bongo Band, as well as more of their latin tinged output and a particularly tasty Illum Sphere remix as well.

For the uninitiated, Mr Bongo is “a now Brighton based independent record label, independent film and publishing company specialising in world music and art house / world cinema.” Started by David Buttle, aka Mr Bongo, in 1989, it was initially a record store in London which gained a global reputation as the go to spot for records. Today, they apply the same distinctive passion for their business as they’ve always done, but see themselves involved in a lot more than just the sale of records. Mr Bongo have multiple arms of their record label – specialising in latin and bass music as well as other styles – they put out films, they publish, they’re basically the epitome of a worldwide arts-led force!

I’d definitely suggest you take a few minutes to have a look around the new Mr Bongo website. It’s full of lots of nice things that are liable to make you go “oooooh” and possibly even “ahhhhh”.
