Ethiopian Records (born Endeguena Mulu) is a musician based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Mulu first started making music while in high school, experimenting with a wide spectrum of sound palettes. His tastes and influences are as varied as his productions, ranging from traditional Ethiopian folk music, to the dub heavy electronics of Mala. He also lists Amon Tobin, Mulatu Astatke, Asnaketch Worku, J Dilla, Kode 9, Francis Bebey, and Alemayehu Eshete as heavy influences, alongside collaborators Mikael Seifu and the Zion Rebels.
Qen Sew, which translates as "good-hearted" or "kind-hearted person", is dedicated to Mulu's father.
