Kingdom has spent the past few years establishing himself as one of the most exciting voices on the North American electronic scene. From his anthemic Fool’s Gold debut “Mind Reader” to his forward-thinking club experiments with the Night Slugs and Fade To Mind crews, no one is making dance music with futuristic R&B textures quite like him.
On Kingdom’s newest single “Take Me”, he goes from deconstructing R&B divas to working with one of his own, Naomi Allen, of the critically acclaimed girl group Electrik Red. The B-side “If You Buck” flips expectations even further as a dreamlike crunk instrumental. The whole package is a summer must-have, and another surprising addition to the Fool’s Gold catalog.
To celebrate this release, Fool’s Gold and Legitmix have partnered on a special exclusive version of the single with an added bonus track – Kingdom’s own remix of beloved R&B duo Floetry’s “Say Yes,” splicing their a cappella atop a definitive Kingdom beat. The edit is a staple of Kingdom’s DJ sets worldwide, and can now be downloaded officially thanks to Legitmix technology. Read More
