Interview: King Britt Talks New Projects + NYC Le Bain Party on 10/15

 

Our upcoming Monday night with the legendary King Britt is just around the corner. As King prepares for what sure to be an all night booty rocking affair, we catch up with the man himself about what’s been moving him of late.

More details on the party after the jump.

Giant Step: What’s your typical day been looking like of late? we know you’re always doing interesting things.

King Britt: Well, I try my best to be pretty organized. I’m lucky to be home through the week Mon-Thurs to work in the studio. I just recently did a remix for Cat Power, Arc in Round and Manuel Tur. Then weekends I fly out to do gigs or check my daughter on campus.

GS: When we checked in with you earlier, you mentioned that you’ve been working “on a number of very interesting projects at the moment.” We’d love to hear more about them!

KB: Yes, as I mentioned, just did some remixes. Recently, completed a few commissions, one an album for the DataGarden label, which is part sound design part experimental music, out now on their label. Two, I just completed a ‘sound art’ commission for Bowerbird as part of Design Philadelphia, which is a sonic interpretation of Jim Sanborn’s Ars Menendi sculpture.

NYC: King Britt @ Le Bain – October 15

 

Joining the stable of legendary DJs that have already graced our Monday nights at Le Bain (Questlove, Dennis Ferrer, Danny Krivit, Rich Medina, DJ Spinna, Louie Vega and Bobbito Garcia), the incomparable King Britt will be laying down some serious danceable delights for us in about a week and a half!

The multitalented globetrotting DJ known for getting any party live is also a composer and a producer. Britt has remixed and produced an array of artists as well as scored commercials for Rolex and L’oreal Paris.

It should go without saying, but have no doubt – this night will not disappoint.

Video: Saturn Never Sleeps Perform ‘Live At The Loft’

 

Another sweet installation from our homies at Live At The Loft. In the above video you’ll find the dreamy Saturn Never Sleeps concocting a melodic atmospheric rapture that we actually had the pleasure of witnessing live. We could think of at least a few activities we wish we were doing while listening to this.

High fives to King Britt and Rucyl for sharing their radical collaborative powers with us. Definitely looking forward to more from this project.

And as always, hats off to our compadres at the Loft. The volunteer run video project brings out some great acts and highlights some dope visual artists at the same time. In addition to Tone, the photo/video crew consists of King Texas, Joseph Marconi, Vinny Picone, Olivia Seally, and Ed Pages. Check em out.

Yay to fun projects that do cool things and support independent artists.
