The Mung Beings are producers Allan Thomasson and Nigel Braddock (from Australia and New Zealand respectively) and Saadiah Fowlkes from New York. The three met in Berlin where they recorded their debut album, to be released on Monkey Records late 2020. Their sound is a mash-up of future soul, conscious rap, electronica and jazz served up with conspicuous lyrics and a positive attitude.
Their debut single, Transhuman, explores the convergence of technology and humanity and the impending Singularity. It asks the provocative question, “Do you want to live forever?”
Their latest single, Keepin It Movin On is a timely encouragement to keep going and persevere despite hardship and setbacks. It features Saad's father, celebrated jazz trombonist Curtis Fowlkes (Jazz Passengers, Glen Hansard) and renowned gospel singer Tracey Duncan (The Weather Girls, James Last).
