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.
Kelela is a singer and songwriter based in Los Angeles, and is the lastest signing to Kingdom's Fade to Mind label, the first vocalist to be signed to the larger Night Slugs / Fade to Mind collective. Kelela's vocals will be featured on Kingdom's upcoming EP for Fade to Mind, shortly followed by her debut mixtape, which will feature original productions from Kingdom, Nguzunguzu, Girl Unit, Jam City, Morri$, and more.
