His breakthrough single ‘Night Air’, co-produced by the mighty Burial, thrust him into media spotlight and eventually earned him the fourth place in BBC’s respected Sound Of poll. Born to a Malaysian-Chinese father and a Celtic singer, Woon’s career was foreshadowed at a young age, even before he started attending the famous BRIT school, also attended by the likes of Amy Winehouse.
His typical R’n’B style singing is not dissimilar to an army of other UK based soul vocalists, thus his “trademark” style encompasses a heavy use of samplers and programming. Although he has yet to establish himself in the music scene – without the help of the master of hauntingly beautiful tunes Burial – Woon continues to swim in the turbulent waters of contemporary electronic pop (with a MOBO award nomination and a remix for the Youtube starlet Lana Del Rey under his belt).
You can now win two pairs of tickets to see him live in action. He plays at the Education series of parties this Friday, November 18 at the Meetfactory. Simply fill in the form below. Good luck!
