“Kitsune” is one of the most recent drops from underground chillout producer extraordinaire “Mugen”, whose integrity and respect for the craft is tangible and felt easily in all his songs.
Maintaining his trademark signature of ambient hip-hop/lounge, Mugen has produced another beautifully, simplistic and sophisticated single in “Kitsune” which has been well received online with track comments such as “Such a fresh choice of samples” and “Love it! I want this!” already mounting up – the artist is building on a solid platform and foundation, carefully moulding and finessing his sound to perfection. It puts the listener at ease and in a great mood straight away and it is perhaps my favourite of his releases available on Soundcloud.
Compared to his other releases, “Kitsune” is slightly more technical, although quite mellow still. You could be forgiven for thinking that you’re listening to a Buddha Bar or a Hotel Costes mixtape as it would fit right into any of those collections. Matter of fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see “Kitsune” featured in any upcoming issues as Mugen’s music is tailor made for such platforms. Great work from this unbelievable producer who has been one of the surprise discoveries this month, with the end of the year fast approaching. Don’t forget to check his Soundcloud and show some love! I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear of Mugen.
