LISTEN – New Music From King Mono

March 29th, 2015


King Mono delivers a unique breed of futuristic funk, drawing influences from funk, R&B, house, and ’70s rock. The Brooklyn-based duo consists of multi-instrumentalists and producers Little Shalimar (Run The Jewels) and Jeremy Wilms. The two musicians previously worked together as members of the Afrobeat unit Antibalas and disco soul group Chin Chin. However, King Mono marks a transition from a full band setup to a studio project for Shalimar and Wilms. Using a variety of vintage Casio keyboards, portable drum machines, and a spirit of experimentation, the duo combine hip hop influences and electronic-leaning techniques.” — via Mass Appeal
