GUGU KING (Sound of Gugu) / About
Originally from London and still very much connected, Sound of Gugu is currently based within earshot of the surf of Sydney at the production HQ of Gugu King, who is also often seen and heard around the globe.
Detroit and Chicago House entered London in the late 1980's. Gugu King as he would come to be known was hooked. Spending many a weekend travelling all over London and the surrounding counties. The terraces and the mansions. Spurs Man and boy.
Ravers would stop an ever growing convoy of cars in the middle of a motorway. Switch off the car music and engines,"shoosh" each other politely to hear the rave and its massive sound system bass travelling on the wind, through trees and fields out of the distant and dark night.
Random ravers would point a finger and shout "its there!". Within seconds, we would be back in ours heading towards the music..no doubt with more stops on the way until eventually in the early hours of a Sunday morning, we would arrive.
We loved to meet illegally in barns, aircraft hangers, mansion house's or just a basement with no proper exits.. We did not let the political system or police stop us, we love house music and the infectious love it provides, we always will. The foundation was set.
