We predicted 2011 would belong to Kingdom, and in a way we were right. The NY/LA producer is tearing it up with his new label Fade To Mind, but fortunately he’s not neglecting his own work in the process. His latest single is ‘Take Me’, featuring his trademark razor-sharp percussion, pitch-shifting bass and diva vocals. This time, however, the vocals come courtesy of Naomi Allen of the underrated R&B group Electrik Red. The result is one of Kingdom’s finest works yet, and the B-side ‘If You Buck’ is a rolling, snapping instrumental with a laid-back grrove that perfectly compliments the sexy brashness of side A. ‘Take Me’ is out July 26th on Fools Gold.
