Listen As MUNDU Expertly Flips 'Chapter Six' Into 'The Stoop'
Say what you want about To Pimp A Butterfly and Kendrick Lamar, but mark our words — the influences of them both will be felt for generations to come. Take for example, 20-year-old Michael Kiggundu, also known as MUNDU, who expertly flips the Section 80 standout interlude, “Chapter Six” for his own alt-R&B track, “The Stoop”.
The South London native is a singer, songwriter and producer who is just hitting the scene. His eclectic style, influenced by the likes of Pink Floyd, Kanye West and OutKast, beguiles the listener with an apparent wisdom and sound that MUNDU’s been developing since the age of 15.
Over the summer, MUNDU released his own debut EP entitled Qrush, which sonically detailed his encounters with women, his bouts with depression and covers songs by SZA (“Ice Moon”) and Ella Henderson (“Five Tattoos”). MUNDU, who spent his formative years singing in a choir and creating Christian rap and hip-hop, gifts the game with an inventive and imaginative reworking of “Chapter Six,” which samples KING‘s “Hey” to some serious futuristic aplomb.
Armed with an infused set of elements that merge the R&B and Soul of today with electronic elements, MUNDU’s unique sound is one worth staying tune to. With cemented plays on BBC 1Xtra, RoundHouse Radio and Break London, MUNDU is eagerly spreading his sound in a way that is not only hypnotizing, but engrossing and definitely worth pressing play on.
