Kingdom

Los Angeles-based DJ / producer Kingdom rose to public acclaim with his debut single “Mind Reader” (released on Fool’s Gold in early 2010), a collaboration with big-voiced NYC diva Shyvonne. But even before “Mind Reader,” Kingdom had been deeply involved in Bok Bok & Lvis-1990′s London-based Night Slugs collective, having had his European debut at their second-ever club night. It was his mixtapes that first alerted Night Slugs’ attention. His debut 2006 mixtape fused grime, crunk, US club, and house with his unique adaptations of R&B vocals. On his debut Night Slugs EP That Mystic, Kingdom delivered five tracks that reference many of the aforementioned genres, but also posses a completely individual, otherworldly gleam.

Vertical XL is Kingdom’s 5th EP, a personal body of work made during his first years living in Los Angeles. The seven tracks chart a wide emotional terrain, connecting recent developments in Kingdom’s production with seminal darker influences. Drawing its stories from moonlit rural isolation and dissonant moments in club vortexes, Vertical XL is a definitive insight into Kingdom’s journey as an artist, steeped in elements of grime, jungle, and R&B.

On the euphoric / cathartic lead single “Bank Head” (featuring Kelela), Fade to Mind’s new vocalist Kelela completes Kingdom’s new vision of R&B, marking the first release in a series of upcoming collaborations between the two. From love to loss, the fresh romance of “Zip Line” gives way to the dark mortality of “Corpse.” The grime-influenced “Viper Lash” is designed to rattle the club, an abstract dancefloor weapon with ominous bass explosions and spattered percussion. Completing the EP are “Takedown Notice,” a slowgrinding bedroom ballad, and the anthemic build of “Viper XL.”
