Blackburn music producer on track for success

Lancashire Telegraph: SOUNDING OUT Alex Walker-Ingham SOUNDING OUT Alex Walker-Ingham

A DANCE music producer from Blackburn is making waves on local radio — at only 15 years old.

Alex Walker-Ingham from Meadowfields, Ewood, who performs under the moniker Mungo Nation, released his debut EP in January and has plans for a follow-up album this year.

The St Wilfrid’s student recently joined the Acid City Records label and is hoping for a summer packed with live shows.

Alex, who hopes to study music technology next year, makes all of his music in his bedroom and has already released a single, “Blade Banshee”, via iTunes.

And although he currently makes his music free to stream online at www.officialmungo.com, he is hoping to carve a career out of music in the long run.

He said: “My next album will be available on iTunes so hopefully I’ll be able to get some attention that way. Music is what I want to do with my life. Making tracks takes up all of my spare time.

“People assume that it is easy to put a piece of music together but it’s really not.”

His debut release They Came From Outer Space contains a range of dance and electronic music influences, from modern dubstep to house and acid tech.

Alex caught the attention of DJ Sean McGinty after uploading songs to the BBC Introducing website, and has recently collaborated with artists in Canada and the USA.

He produces his songs using a range of effects tools, syn-thesisers, decks and mixing equipment, yet still takes time out for lessons on the humble guitar.

“I’m influenced by a massive range of dance and metal music, but the stuff I create leans towards artists like Skrillex, Deadmau5 and Aphex Twin,” he added.
