Winter Residency on The Mixing Bowl :: Kun [June Mix]
July 8th 2014
Australia’s unofficial Soulection advocate has made you an exclusive mix. You’re welcome.
- Kun :: Winter '14 Residency :: June Mix
Kun‘s Fade Up feature in January had him telling you about his influences, citing J Dilla, DJ Premier and Pete Rock as the roots of his initial love for hip hop. “When I first started making beats seriously I was your typical beat fanatic” he said, “then as the years progressed…I began breaking away from sample-heavy beats to really compose, design and produce some original music that sounds current but still has those soul vibes inherent within it”. The Sydney lad has definitely achieved that balance, and it’s a beautiful thing.
While he still remains very much under the radar on his home turf, Kun has only built on his presence in the SoundCloud universe, to the point where LA beatmaking crew and internationally admired radio show Soulection repped him a few months ago. Needless to say, it’ll be very interesting to see where his music will end up next.
Kun’s next Winter Residency mix will air on The Mixing Bowl on July 19, before being uploaded for streaming the following Wednesday. In the meantime, his fellow Winter Residents Sweetland, Stephane, and Chiefs will keep you company with a stack of dance music from heaps of different genres.
