Profile:
Yungun a.k.a. Essa was born in North London where he lives and works today. He began his musical career as a host and MC on pirate radio station Parlay in Harrow during the mid 1990s. There he formed the group Dupa Styles with fellow MC Devise. The duo began making noise on the fiercely competitive open mic circuit at spots across London, forging an alliance with other emerging MCs such as Ricochet (Universal Soldiers) and Jargon (MI5, Natural Born Spittaz).

In 1998 Yungun made contact with Harry Love (Kung Fu, Formerly of Scratch Perverts) who began to play the vital role of Dupa Styles DJ/Producer. Whilst still recording with the group, Yungun began a solo career, appearing on projects by LG & Lopez ("City Breaks"), Evil Ed ("The Art of Celebration") Doc Brown ("Out There") and Tommy Evans ("Four Horsemen", "Silent Mobius").

His affiliation with the Low Life Records collective led to appearances on the "Food" LP (the Harry Love produced "That’s What Eye see") and on the remix of Jehst’s “Adventures in New Bohemia”. Much of his work with the YNR Productions camp is featured on the label’s compilation album "Young N Restless Vol. 1". Yungun, now also known as Essa, is set to make big noise this year on solo projects featuring production by Harry Love, Lewis Parker, Mr. Thing, and Ben Grymm
