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.

Live Recording: Rich Medina at Le Bain, May 2012

We recently got slid a pretty amazing one hour and twenty six minutes of music by Rich Medina’s manager. The recording is from Rich’s set at one of our recent night’s at Le Bain at The Standard in NYC. And might we add that it’s been one of his best nights to date?! Yeah, we helped do that. We’re not boastful or anything. But in case you’re smacking yourself right now for missing it, feel free to stream the whole set below. We’re loving and compassionate like that.
