w/ Special guest, legendary Philly dj/ producer King Britt (fivesix media)
You certainly won’t find an artist with a better potential to transpose the many different musical genres into a marvelous standard of grooves full of feelings than Philadelphia native King Britt. His comprehension of what we should call the phonographic culture lies much ahead than the common ones. With a work forged a mixture of Jazz, Soul, Funk, the percussive Afro beats, Hip Hop, Broken Beats, Deep House and the new Electronic Jazz fusion, King Britt has proved to be a very eclectic and open minded soul.

King Britt was the DJ of the Grammy winner Hip Hop-Jazz fusion band Digable Planets. His career pointed to different directions as he started to travel the World on Digable tours and with his own ones on the international House scene as Disc Jockey. At the beginning of his journey as solo DJ, he began a partnership with the well-known DJ/ producer and owner of Ovum Recordings: Josh Wink, who also contributed for the development of his career. One of their first projects together was E-Culture, the one behind the classic “Tribal Confusion” released by Strictly Rhythm in 1990.

King’s seventies funk roots of Philadelphia are also represented through his Sylk 130 project, which brought the traditional Philly sounds elements and projects with artists such as Ursula Rucker, Alma Horton and Alison Crockette in a combination of a funk-soul aura. The highlight of this alias was attained with the long play “When The Funk Hits The Fan”, an excellent combination of the traditional Plilly soul grooves blended with contemporary electronica.
King’s talents as a remixer resulted in a total subversion of rhythms and of the original tunes conceptions, from the works of Yoko Ono and Femi Kuti to the ones of Erykah Badu and Macy Gray. Perhaps that should be the cause why he received, as well as other celebrities like Masters At Work and Joe Claussell, the invitation by the people from legendary Jazz label Verve Records to give his contribution to the acclaimed compilation “Verve Remixed”. He finally owned the title on the category “Remix of the Year” with Danny Tenaglia and Basement Jaxx, which granted him the status of one of the most respected remixes all over the World.
