Klumzy Tung – Freestyle Emcee- Lyricist – Singer/Songwriter
Perceptive, quick-witted and versatile, London born lyricist Klumzy Tung combines mind-boggling freestyles with cleverly written, socially conscious songs.
The combination of both has enabled him to deliver energetic, positive and unpredictably entertaining live shows, capturing the imagination of audiences in both the UK and internationally.
He began playing live in 2004 as one half of the musical duo ‘The GobFathers' alongside 2x UK Beatbox champion Beardyman. Their show consisted of 2 microphones, and the ability to improvise, depending on what the crowd suggested they perform, using only freestyle and beatbox. This type of show allowed Klumzy Tung to develop as a freestyler, always pushing the boundaries.
n 2007 he began to play alongside DJ and Producer ‘Mr.Dero'. The result of their successful partnership was "The Little Things EP" featuring musical friends Farina Miss, Beardyman, DJ Vadim, JStar, JFB and Amtrak. Their track 'Headscrews' feature as the soundtrack for UK's Worldwide hit TV show 'Skins', charting in the top 30 of UK, Ireland & Spain's i -Tunes 'Hip Hop & Rap chart'
His creativity and willingness to test the possibilities of freestyle have seen him co-host ‘The Freestyle Show' on Sky TV, appearing on Rapture TV, the Tim Shaw Show on Kerrang FM, BBC Radio1 Extra, Pyroradio.com, Knowledge Magazine, DJ Mag, and last year film ‘Web Heroes' for Channel 4 alongside Beardyman, posing as Traffic Wardens, generally causing havoc with the public using freestyle and beatbox.
2008 saw the invention of the ‘Klumzy Word Generator' a device that allows the audience to input words (that are unknown to Klumzy) into software, which then randomly appear, projected on to a screen, on stage, for Klumzy to incorporate into live freestyle songs. Off the cuff, on the spot.
Klumzy Tung can also be found performing as part of the live Hip-Hop/Drum n Bass outfit ‘Stevies Wonder Glasses', with Mr.Dero on turntables, live improvise drummer Dr.Pheel, and soul queen Farina Miss.
Klumzy Tung has performed on many stages in the UK and around Europe including ‘Cargo', ‘Carling Academy' Islington, ‘Carnival Party' Rijeka, Croatia, ‘Audio' Brighton, ‘Yo' in Cologne, Germany, and even freestyle in The House of Commons.
