“You know I’m original, not your everyday typical”
an era where urban blends into pop, it’s refreshing to hear a new sound
from a distinctively new voice. East London singer and rapper, Mumzy
Stranger unleashes his debut single Fly With Me on 10th October.
Impossible to box in a specific genre, Fly With Me
draws influences from dance music combined with smooth R&B vocals
and a distinct dancehall flavor. It’s a sound that has already got the
likes of Radio 1’s Nihal and Fearne Cotton and Choice’s The Firin Squad
playing the single as well as being listed as DJ Target’s homegrown
talent single of the week.
and co-produced with renowned producer and long time mentor, Rishi
Rich, Mumzy Stranger has been making a name for himself on the urban and
Asian underground scene over the last few years. Plaistow-born Mumzy
started out on East London’s grime scene battling with other MCs before
discovering the Asian club scene when he started University. Combing the
two genres with his love of dancehall music, Mumzy Stranger started
becoming one of the key figures on the Asian music scene. His singles One More Dance and Showgirl topped the Asian charts and the success led to collaborations with some of Bollywood’s biggest musicians.
Stranger has had a busy few months as he prepares for his breakthrough
into the mainstream. He can currently be heard as the featured rapper on
Preeya Kalidas single ‘Shimmy’ and has just wrapped up a mela tour
which he headline performing to audiences of up to 60,000 people.
between all this Mumzy Stranger has been finishing his debut album
which will be released in 2011. As you can expect from an artist who
mixes sounds and styles, he is determined not to be pigeonholed. “I’m
not an Asian doing R&B music. I’m a soulful, R&B, bashment artist who happens to be Asian. I don’t need to be put under any category.”
