King Britt is putting his last dance record out on Nervous Records. He will be retiring the dance / house productions to pursue a more experimental sound. The former Digable Planets member took to his website to tell his fans of his retirement from dance production.
From King Britt
“Well, its been a minute since I released an album of original material. The Intricate Beauty will be coming this March/April on Nervous/FiveSix. I had a great time working on it and collaborating with the beautiful singers, Rucyl, Lady Almaa, Ryat and Astrid Suryanto, as well as remixing Kim English and Byron Stingly exclusives for the album.
This album will be my last ‘conventional’ dance album. I have been inching more into experimental electronica and techno, like The Nova Dream Sequence and Ramon Tejada w/ Rucyl Mills. "
“Now” features vocals from Astrid Suryanto. The track is an interesting direction for King. It sounds like a Telepopmusik track featuring a Tracey Thorn (Everything But The Girl) vocal. What do you think?
King Britt’s “Intricate Beauty” will be released on April 20, 2010.
