King Britt The Intricate Beauty

King Britt The Intricate Beauty
Like the sun shines brightly in spring, King Britt's newest record of original material, titled The Intricate Beauty, hits shelves in synchronicity with the emergence of warmth and a season representing newness and growth. Expanding the boundaries of music for more then three decades, Britt was part of Digable Planets in his youth, where he was known as Silkworm. He started the Philly-based Ovum imprint with Josh Wink back in 1994. A musical innovator of beat-based grooves, with natural finesse and mystique, on The Intricate Beauty, King Britt makes a satisfying dance album rich in production, with sounds both fresh and classic. "Nightlife," featuring Kim English, would be the peak of an outdoor party on a warm, starry night. The new generation of house music producers might see this record as a gift or precursor for times to come, as it does nice work making old sounds feel innovative again. As for King Britt, plans are he'll be merging into more experimental lanes of electronica for future releases. (Nervous)
