Australian hip hop trio Bliss N Eso reflect on the passing of music industry icon Michael Gudinski

Bliss N Eso, like many others, were deeply affected by the sudden passing of Mushroom Records founder Michael Gudinski in March this year.

On Thursday, the hip hop trio told The Herald Sun he was like a father figure to them after his son Matt signed them to his Illusive Sounds label in 2006.  

‘It still doesn’t feel real to me,’ Bliss told the publication, referring to Gudinski’s passing. 

‘We would talk a lot, and some mornings I wake up and think, “Damn, I can’t just call him”. 

‘He literally was a father to us in so many ways and that went beyond music.’

Bliss N Eso were finishing off their seventh album, titled The Sun, when they received the news of his sudden death.  

The award-winning trio have dedicated the release to Gudinski’s memory. 

Meanwhile, last week Ed Sheeran also announced his new single, titled Visiting Hours, is dedicated to Gudinski.

‘I wish that heaven had visiting hours, And I would ask them if I could take you home,’ he sings in the emotional song that was written while he was in quarantine Down Under.    

Michael died in his sleep on March 2 at the age of 68. 

The music legend’s state funeral was held at the end of March at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena.

It featured performances from Kylie Minogue, Jimmy Barnes and Ed Sheeran, who all had a close friendship with Michael.  

Tributes were also made by Elton John, Taylor Swift and Bruce Springsteen.
