Mansur Brown is the definition of a prodigy. A classically trained guitarist, curator and multi-disciplinary artist whose music balances virtuoso precision with deft expressions of emotion. Born in Brixton, Mansur’s distinctive compositional approach finds him blending his intricate, flamenco-influenced guitar with his own original production work, informed by the rhythmic snap of early ‘00s Timbaland and the swing of Afrobeats and the melancholic sound design of Burial.
A collection of club heaters that set Brown’s melodic guitar to a set of rich, filled-out dancefloor productions, NAQI Vol.1 finds Mansur exploring the influence of ‘00s hip-hop innovator Timbaland and Afrobeats artists like Burna Boy and Wizkid.
“I like my music to have a club feel at its core, but to keep hold of that sense of musicality,” he explains. “Having that sense of movement, but with guitar melodies, keyboards, and strings over the top –that’s always been a dream of mine”.
