Selections: Mun Sing
Welcome back to Selections, a series of exclusive artist-curated Spotify playlists from those in the know.
Mun Sing is the solo project from Harry Wright, one half of Bristol duo Giant Swan. Last year’s debut EP Witness saw Wright hitting out on his own, bringing his experimental flair to five tracks which combine industrial sounds with rhythms ranging from grime to EBM. His dynamic live shows, bringing together pop’s energetic dance routines, bright visuals and vibrant costumes, function as another facet for his chaotic creativity.
His Selections playlist brings together the eclectic inspirations informing his musical practice. Combining a diverse mix of artists, the playlist comfortably places a Ryuichi Sakamoto track amongst an alt-pop offering from Kim Petras, a slice of electro house from Steve Aoki and cutting edge techno from rRoxymore.
As the musician explains, the playlist is ultimately inspired by a recent trip to China, as well as combining some of his favourite tracks of late: “I put this playlist together on the train from Beijing to Shanghai. Most of these tracks have been the soundtrack to my time here in China and the weeks leading up to it. It features local acts from Shanghai and Hong Kong plus a load of stuff I’m really excited about from around London and Bristol.”
“It’s these tracks that help me feel more grounded when I’m on my own in a totally new landscape, and pretty much every artist here has both inspired and challenged me in really positive ways. There’s also a bunch of my favourite recent pop tunes in there that again serve a purpose of uniting people in world that feels too big to comprehend sometimes.”
Mun Sing performs at Unsound Adelaide, Australia, on 15 December
