Kuzich — Fruit Soup (EP Launch)

Mandarin Dreams & Crown Ruler are proud to launch the latest project from KUZICH…


Kuzich has been turning heads since his recent arrival in Melbourne.

Finding a home with his Mandarin Dreams family, the last 12 months has seen him collaborate with artists like Sampa The Great, Joyce Wrice, Mwanje, Raw Humps, Silentjay & Jace XL just to name a few.

He’s now ready to share his latest collection of existential soul music.

Known for his lush production, evident on his debut release, Dawn Chorus (823/Jakarta Records), Fruit Soup also highlights his talent as a vocalist and story teller.

Singing otherworldly love songs from the comfort of his drum stool, and backed by his Mandarin Dreams Octet, this performance will be an all immersive reflection of the beauty and absurdity of the everyday.

Surrender to it all and be free.

The evening will also feature intimate performances from

‘To label this release in the scope of genre would be a distraction from the various influences heard throughout the six track collection. His housemates describe this EP as esoteric, eccentric, proverbial boom bap. While his dog Mello likens this release to a Harry Nilsson/Sun Ra collaboration, recorded in your parents basement or a Melbourne share-house. One reviewer recently described him as ‘a baffling hip hop oddity who could either be categorised as an outsider genius or an unrehearsed shambles’. Whatever it may be, FRUIT SOUP exists and is being shared with the world.’
