Keepin It Movin On

by The Mung Beings

I’m walking a long and winding road And I’m tryin to find my way back home But I don’t know which way to go I’m on my own and it’s so cold And my mind Is so weary man And my eyes Are so bleary man And the skies Are so dreary man Sometimes I can’t see clearly man But I Gotta keep movin on Yes I Gotta keep movin strong So I Gotta make improvements on my stride Cuz I keep losing all this time And I’m about to lose my mind Cuz it’s so dark it’s like I’m blind But in my heart I hope I’ll find The finish line (that’s why I’m) Gotta find my way Find my way hey Hey hey hey I’m on a quest No I ain’t Kanye But I’m headed west And I’m all outta breath But I can’t rest Gotta take another step While I’ve still got pep In my walk and my talk Cuz I’m so adept But it’s been three days Since I last slept But somehow someway I have kept Kept on trudging on Even though it feels like I’ve got nothing on Ima catch my death But I struggle on Cuz the voice in my head It nudged me on The heart in my chest Is still thumpin strong So I know that I’m blessed And loved along The way so no way Am I budgin on The matter that I have to keep Chuggin on Gotta find my way Find my way hey Hey hey hey


NY/Berlin-based band, The Mung Beings, hail from diverse musical backgrounds and opposite ends of the earth. Their sound is a mash-up of future soul, conscious rap, electronica and jazz served up with conspicuous lyrics and a positive attitude.

Keeping It Moving On, their new single, brings a much-needed positive message of hope that encourages people not to give up their struggles and to keep pushing forward. Sickness, oppression, dishonesty and hard times can be overcome by focusing on what is good and right in the world such as love, family, friends and community. The Mung Beings say, believe in yourself and others and keep it moving on.

The Mung Beings are producers Allan Thomasson and Nigel Braddock (from Australia and New Zealand respectively) and Saadiah Fowlkes from Brooklyn, New York. The three met in Berlin in where they recorded their debut album, soon to be released on Monkey Records.

Special guests on Keepin It Movin’ On include Fowlkes’ father, celebrated jazz trombonist Curtis Fowlkes (The Jazz Passengers, Debbie Harry, Glen Hansard) and renowned gospel singer Tracey Duncan (James Last, The Weather Girls).

Fowlkes is a rapper, singer and DJ. He has performed at venues all over the world, mostly in his hometown NYC and Berlin, his home for nine years. He was a member of the rock/hip hop band Natural Selection and has shared the stage with the likes of Wyclef Jean and Mark Ronson.

Braddock, originally a classical pianist, plays keyboards on the album and was also responsible for recording and production. He founded Monkey Records in 2000 and has produced nine other albums to date including the award winning debut by Charity Children. He also plays in Dystopia, Cosmo and the Cosmonaut (with his son), has an electronic project called Broad Oak and composes minimalist solo piano music.

Thomasson plays bass and provides beats on the recordings and was an early auteur of seminal electronic dance music production in New Zealand in the 1990s with MINK and offshoot Cloudboy as well as creating video content for their live shows. In Berlin since 2003, Thomasson has worked with The Sacred Travellers, a World Jazz Fusion group, as well as producing his own electronic music as Boxroom Rebel. He is responsible for any video content on behalf of The Mung Beings including the Mung Days series.

Debut album coming late 2020.
