description

DJ and beatsmith extraordinaire ShunGu has been dropping cosmic killer beats in Brussels since… ShunGu makes astral beats that are fizzling and rich in flavour, exploding with spaced out hip-hop vibes sitting somewhere between Knxwledge and Nujabes. He creates projects that can’t just be played in the background, but is meant to be examined and picked at warranting your attention.

Influenced by your favourite producers Madlib and J Dilla, ShunGu has made a name for himself in as an eclectic producer with 5 years of experience on the MPC 2000XL. This has seen him perform a string of gigs in countries such as London, Moscow, Oakland, Italy, Austria, Portugal and France. Sampling and music-making are part of his daily life, which is why in 2016 ShunGu was invited to play Boiler Room in London further cementing his star status. ShunGu’s DJ sets explore the depths of soul music, experimental beats, spiritual jazz, boogie-funk and hip-hop gems.
