For our 11th segment of TRNSD Sound & HYPE Magazine sessions, we feature well known Joburg based electronic Producer and DJ, Sean Munnick. He started on FL Studio in 2003 and hasn’t looked back ever since. Sean is currently signed to the iconic Dirtybird label, based in San Francisco, USA.
We asked the homie to do an exclusive mix for us and you can find out more about the artist in our Q&A interview with him here:
We commonly know you as Sean Munnick, who is Nigurr?
Nigurr is a 2012 alias I came up with because I got tired of my beats being rejected by labels, so I thought I’d do my own thing by mixing Bass House produced by myself and laying popular acapellas over them. The UK market got onto it and that’s how I found the sound I’ve been making is what was called “G-House”
What have been some of your most memorable gigs and why?
Most memorable gig to date has to be the Boiler Room gig, mainly because I’ve always envisioned myself on there ever since I found out about it.
Do you have any projects that you’re currently working on or planning to release anytime soon?
I am currently working on a 10 track CD for House Afrika and Mzansi House Vol 8 which releases this year, not too sure on the exact date. I’m also working with a few guys from PE & Cape Town on some rap/trap music to be released in 2018.
What’s in the mix you made for TRNSD Sound x HYPE Magazine Sessions?
This mix contains all the sounds I’m currently listening to, to expand my musical knowledge and taste.
Favourite sneaker brand…
Favourite sneaker brand has to be Nike, that’s only because of the Airmax 90, the comfort, the colour ways. Timeless.
Favourite hangout spot…
My favourite hangout spot is Cafe 420 in Sandton, because it’s so chill there. I can really take some time out to think.
Favourite piece of tech…
For this I’d have to say the Pioneer XDJ, because I still do love DJing and it’s a nice on the go DJ setup
Music to play at the afterparty when it’s 6am and the sun is beginning to rise…
Haha for this I’d probably play some of my deeper house sounds just to create the perfect atmosphere as well. Like ‘Respect my Hustle or ‘Should Have Known’, those would go in at that time I feel.
