A proud Filipino immigrant, Juno Mamba’s music is richly detailed and deeply personal. ‘I discovered music through my mother, who’s an incredible classical pianist. I used music to feel accepted. Music protected me from the real world and made me feel safe’.
Moving to Australia at the age of 5, music soon became an outlet. Learning guitar at school and playing in punk bands through his teenage years, he found himself drawn to music recording and production.
Demonstrating exponential growth in his capabilities as a producer and musician, his intention of creating music with space to feel and to think is still intrinsic to the project, but is now steeled with the kind of confidence only time brings.
2021 has seen the release of EP, Freedom, from Juno Mamba so far, with its spiritual partner, Infinity, set for release in the second half of the year. Tied together with threads of wanting to reflect and fortified with hope and optimism and a yearning for connection in a time when it’s most needed, Juno Mamba’s 2021 efforts depict a producer in his element. He’s leaned into the discomfort vulnerability brings, and by doing so has tapped into its power as well, and it’s here where Juno Mamba really finds his strength as an artist.
2 years in, Juno Mamba has become a familiar name abroad with support from BBC radio 1 and locally from Triple J, Fbi and Triple R. He’s turned heads at Complex, Ransom Note and Purple Sneakers. Worked with award winning Director Sanjay De Silva on his debut film clip and he’s been remixed by the likes of TSHA, Nathan Micay and Manami.
As he wraps up 2021 with the release of his third EP set for release via spiritual home Soothsayer and internationally via Anjunadeep, 2022 looks set to be the year Juno Mamba is finally able to be brought to the world. This is music which should be experienced in the visceral, cathartic and liberating way it was intended, and the man behind it now steps into the light completely on his own terms, and ready to connect.
