‘Fast Car’ is the second single leading up to Mugun’s debut EP.
We were immediately struck by the incredible flow this guy has. Tight and eloquent lyrics laid over a chilled out, yet punchy, beat make this song a real bop.
Hailing from Coventry, Mugun has been making waves with his diverse sound, a blend of hip-hop influenced UK Rap over lo-fi beats. Drawing the name from his love of Manga, skater kid Mugun began to love music from a young age, being woken up on a Sunday by the smooth sounds of Sanchez or Josey Wales, then moving to Jamaica at the age of 13 where he was surrounded by musical culture in its rawest form. During this time Mugun got to experience the creative process of song making, being in the studio and understanding sound through his dad, which led to the beginning of his own musical journey on his return back to the UK at the age of 16. Being between Jamaica and the UK from the age of 13 to 21 provided Mugun with an invaluable perspective on creating music, as well as viewing our culture differently, ultimately influencing his diverse and unique sound.
