It marks the first non-remix track from the Dublin duo since their debut album, 'Casual Work'.
Mango x MathMan have a brand new song out today, heading down a more house and garage direction.
Karl Mangan and Adam Fogarty are ready to share some new tunes after the release of their 2019 debut album Casual Work, which was four tough years in the making.
‘Vibes’ is a dance-heavy anthem, featuring a guest verse from UK garage legend – MC Creed. Curated on rave-inspired piano chords and an intense vocal melody, it's readymade for radio.
“Mathman sent me this record in the hardest lockdown, a miserable winter, no end in sight," Mango wrote on his Instagram page today. "When I listened to it I could close me eyes & remember that feeling of being in a club havin' the night of yer life singing, dancing & buzzing with yer mates."
"I had this photo saved on me phone & would look at it while writing my lyrics, vividly remembering all these incredible raves I had played or danced in & how they shaped & gave me so much happiness even at the lowest points of my life," the rapper added. "Ironically the kind of places & nights I’ve needed the most are the ones I haven’t been able to go to in so long."
Mango's love for Dublin has yet to wane, despite the tough rent, homelessness, housing, economic and cultural circumstances in the capital.
"As much as I can write about how hard it is to live here, the struggles and the strife. We love it here, and still believe in it. The people, the buzz, the Vibes!"
"Our music is street music & club music. You come to any gig or DJ set of ours & it’s not all hard grime & rap, it’s big club bangers! 2-step singalongs & uplifting music!"
"That’s US & a side of us we always want to represent. Yin & Yang.”
