321 : Kingdom

Kingdom may not be clairvoyant, but there is something visionary about his hyper hybrid brand of sassy avant-bass music. Our pals at Acephale are releasing a lustrous, limited-edition 10″ that you can order now, and Acephale alumni, CFCF provides this glacial two-step refix. After the jump Kingdom talks Mimi and Baby Girl.

Kingdom: “I am from Massachusetts.

“2. I made my first track using a Casio sampling keyboard, a discman, and a 4-track recorder.

“3. When I need spiritual guidance, I walk in the forest, listen to Brandy acapellas, and scroll through drum sample libraries.”

K: “Mariah Carey – H.A.T.E.U. Because it is the most heart breaking break up record ever, and because The-Dream and Tricky Stewart produced and co-wrote it so masterfully.”

“2. Kingdom – Hood By Air (Soundtrack for S/S 2010 collection). Because I had totally forgotten about it and it came up on iTunes shuffle and smacked me in the face. Goth / Gospel / Chant / Juke.”
