King Britt

Artist Description: From a tender age, music was King Britt’s life. His father co-owned a barber shop that exposed King to funk and soul. His mother, who would take him to concerts, would occasionally bring King to visit her friend Sun Ra, Afrofuturism pioneer, in his Philadelphia home. Sun Ra became one of Kings’s greatest musical influences. About a decade later, King’s personal musical legacy would begin as a 12” vinyl dance music buyer for Tower Records (1987-1991). During that time, King became the first DJ (1990-2004) at the now famed Silk City in his native Philadelphia.

In the late eighties, King Britt and future techno genius Josh Wink began collaborating on music production; a world that King introduced his friend Wink to. In 1990, the legendary label Strictly Rhythm released "Tribal Confusion,” the duo’s first commercial success. Recognizing their potential, King and Wink founded Ovum Recordings, which introduced budding phenom poet Ursula Rucker to a global audience. Within this label, King produced the albums 'When the Funk Hits the Fan'. Ovum laid the foundation for King’s music production, though he ultimately left to pursue his growing sonic interests that included a broad range of genres, emerging and preeminent artists, and distinctive record labels.

With this astute decision, King’s solo work and remixes became integral to the changing landscape of dance music. Josh One “Contemplation” (King Britt Funke Mix) has become an Ibiza anthem along with Gus Gus “David” (King Britt Scuba Mix) and H-Foundation “Tonight” (King Britt Scuba Mix).

In 2006 director Michael Mann approached King to underscore several scenes for Miami Vice; King enthusiastically accepted. This opportunity led to composing/licensing music for Rolex, HBO’s True Blood, Ava Duvernay’s Queen Sugar, and others.
