Welders HiFi is one of the very active crews of the south of France. Their resume has grown steadily since their start in 2008, and they have now played alongside many french and International artists and sound such as Solo Banton, Murray Man, Salomon Heritage, Soom T, Dawa HiFi, Tena Stelin, Slimmah Sound…
They have built a solid reputation in France, organising sessions – the “Massive’s Corners” – on their own home made sound system between Avignon, Aix en Provence and Bagnols-sur- Cèze.
After producing dubs and collaborations with Joseph Cotton, Ilements and Joe Pilgrim among others, this summer saw the release of their first 7″ on their newly formed label featuring Ras Mykha and T.i.T.

With “Every Day”, Ras Mykha (whose previous work can be heard over the productions of Barbes D and Jahspora) delivers a conscious and militant flow, anchored in the pure traditions of rasta philosophy. The version is handled by none other than T.i.T, who is probably best know for his more hard hitting steppa tunes often played by the likes of Iration Steppas, OBF and King Earthquake. But for this release, he proves his versatility with a (very) solid digital killer.

Showing no signs of slowing down, the Welders crew has already set a heavy agenda for the rest of the year, inviting King General and the Bush Chemists at the end of this month, and celebrating the 20th Massive’s Corner in december with Soom T, Sir Jean and Conquering Sounds.
