I wanna, I wanna...I wanna, I wanna... I wanna I wanna rave like back in the day Won't hold back in the night time, rolling no mistake, With my crew at the front you know that’s how we play Take me back to the time gyal, two step to the baseline and rhyme, line and rhyme I wanna I wanna rave like back in the day All the way up no problem let the big sound play I’m allowed in with my bottle of rum and my lemonade Take me back to the time gyal two step to the baseline and rhyme, line and rhyI wanna rave it’s like back in the day. I wanna rave like I’ve travelled through time. I used to wear trackies and caps in the rave. I didn’t wear smart shoes wore my nikes. I just came through to say big up and safe. I’m looking like the Yellow smiley face I was the king at just riding the wave. I can confirm that not much of that’s changed. I wanna rave like back in the day my DJ was on acetate. Gyal move to the B-line wine up waist, I want the speaker in my face. Lets go some next place just for the day, I wanna rewind that decade. Omni trio with renegade snares on the remix it was Foul Play. AYYYY Flashback to the late nights on the Raz, Main Room inna Fabric Lets go champ Rewind to the grey mornings in Victoria station gone to HAM BANG Hitting a new city with the gang of course I’d walk past that doorman These times I weren’t touring, nor were my friends who got real jobs now.. I wanna rave like Back in the Day I wanna rave like way back in my times No guest list I’ll stand in the line. Vinyl mixing double dropping the Nine I wanna I wanna dance like I’m 16 again. I wanna sack my plans tomorrow. The old me and me meet again. Standard procedures follow. I wanna I wanna rave like back in the day Won't hold back in the night time, rolling no mistake, With my crew at the front you know that’s how we play Take me back to the time gyal, two step to the baseline and rhyme, line and rhyme I wanna I wanna rave like back in the day All the way up no problem let the big sound play I’m allowed in with my bottle of rum and my lemonade Take me back to the time gyal two step to the baseline and rhyme, line and rhyme Lemme see you shaking your boots come back to your old school back to your roots. I wanna see ya craziest moves, I was never too cool when I was yout. So come and buss a shape in the room maybe me and my group are the waviest dudes Give a man saves on a zoot then straight in the room with my face in the scoops. Pump pump Do you wanna out out, like wise. Lemme see who’s about now. My guys. Holla all the girls like my size. Sounds of the Mungo’s Hi Fi. All the late nights n the bright lights. We the guys with the wide eyes. Double rum with a sliced lime. Aint it funny how time flies. I wanna rave like back in the day yeahI wanna rave like back in my time. Smoking area chatting away/ Think tonight has reached new heights Dance with all my mates again. Don’t care whats on tomorrow I have this sudden urge to be Back down the long dark tunnel yeah I wanna I wanna I wanna I wanna come on

about

Known for their unique approach to reggae, Glasgow’s Mungo’s Hi Fi have always been influenced by wider sound system and dance music culture. They’ve distilled this passion into new single Back In The Dayz, a homage to 90s rave, jungle and breakbeat, featuring Bristolian emcee Gardna and sultry London singer Catching Cairo.

Over a jungle-esque break and a bassline sounding like a vibrating warehouse roof, Gardna and Catching Cairo share evocative memories of raves and dances they’ve enjoyed. The sounds, friendships, fashions and refreshments that connect the communal party experience flash by in a heady cocktail hit of nostalgia and optimism. The lyrics were co-written by London reggae singer, and Mungo’s collaborator, Kiko Bun.

Like all Mungo’s productions, Back In The Dayz is simultaneously looking back and facing forward. It’s a love letter to the rich traditions of UK rave culture, but also a glimpse towards the time when we can all be free to party again.
