ShunGu Makes Us Bounce On Visuals For New Single 'Groove It Baby'
Hailing from Brussels, producer ShunGu has been dropping cosmic sounding beats since 2012, with an extensive back catalogue of thirty beat tapes on bandcamp. Today ShunGu reveals his new single ‘Groove It Baby’, taken from his forthcoming album ‘A Black Market’, self-released on Sunthings Records, out 19th April.
‘Groove It Baby’ follows ‘Pick Up The Phone’, which premiered exclusively on okayplayer, and ‘Don’t Really Know’, the first single to drop from the album at the end of 2018. Throughout ‘A Black Market’, the production is a fluid representation of ShunGu’s soulful and experimental sound, transcending beats full in flavour and exploding with jazz fusion samples, experimental hip hop and funk. Recorded in his home-studio in Brussels, further guests include South London’s MA.MAYO, whose rich spoken word tones bless ‘Touch By Sun’, while Oakland rapper Spote Breeze flows through the chilled funk grooves of ‘Drop Knowledge’.
Known for his unique sampling techniques using his MPC 2000XL, producing has seen him travel the world, New York, London, Moscow, Lisbon, Montreal to name a few, collaborating with the likes of Rejjie Snow, Ivan Ave and Chester Watson on his journeys.
