Ennio Maccaroni, congenital bassist, studio geek and self-taught rum tester, began remixing favourite selections from his record collection circa 2000. In 2010 he succumbed to requests from fellow DJs, and had two of his versions cut to wax. A series of very limited 7”s ensued, on the Super Mango and Candy Reggae labels – serving up a smorgasbord of calypso-junglism, roots-refixery and miscellaneous mashuppery from Ennio’s ever expanding crate of personal re-rubs and versions.
“The Aberystwyth A-lister of Super Mango Hi-Fi fame goes bananas for reggae, ska, dub, calypso as well as more specialised Caribbean mixtures like calypso-jungle, roots-rerubs, Trojan-breaks et cetera. He only knows four letters – E, A, D and G – cos they spell bass and bass is all you need.” BeatHerder Festival
