MIKESPRO TEAMS UP WITH EUGY FOR “SUNDAY MORNING” [@MIKESPROBEATS]
Hailing from North-West London, producer/songwriter Mikespro teams up with Mobo Award nominee Eugy for his debut single “Sunday Morning”, a catchy track that infuses modern Afrobeat sounds with western-style pop to create a shimmering, groovy track with a downbeat chorus and lyrics focusing on love and affection.
We spoke to Mikespro to learn a little more about how he started as a producer and his musical influences:
“When I first came to the UK, I could hardly speak English so from early on I was very quiet and stayed at home a lot. One day, my brother brought home a computer and he started using software called “Fruity Loops” so I would literally be watching him create music. Eventually, I started using it and picked it up pretty fast, after creating my first beat I took it to school and my friends couldn’t believe that my first beat was that good. That is when the journey began.”
“I personally have a wide range of musical influences, from Hip-Hop, Trap, Pop, Rock & Roll, House, Brazilian Funk etc. I generally enjoy most genres of music. Growing up in Africa I was heavily influenced by artist like Michael Jackson, DMX, 2pac, Bob Marley, the list goes on!”
