Los Angeles-based DJ and label head Kingdom aka Ezra Rubin has built considerable influence with both his own discography and the output from his groundbreaking label, Fade to Mind. Rubin was introduced to MIDI programming and composition at an early age. Inspired by U.K. jungle and Timbalandís genre-defying R&B sound, he began experimenting with sampling keyboards and simple multitrack recording as a teenager. Upon moving to NYC to study visual art, Kingdom developed his signature design style and began his career as a DJ, connecting genres and sounds in a way that NYC club audiences hadn't experienced before. He released two mixtapes in 2006 and 2008 that fused U.K. grime, U.S. club, hip-hop and his own mutated take on R&B, catching the attention of London-based label Night Slugs, which sparked their ongoing transcontinental collaboration and kinship.

In May, Fade to Mind released Kingdom's Vertical XL, a new seven-track trek across biographical terrain, featuring newly-signed vocal sensation Kelela on its lead single "Bank Head." With this and numerous upcoming projects and collaborations, Kingdom continues to develop his unique curatorial map for the future of music and his growing family of club innovators.

Egyptrixx is celestial club music; jeep music for a Saturn desert...concussion and tranquility. There is an exhilarating right-but-wrong tension in all the tracks – a shifting balance between melodic and dissonant, rapturous and antisocial. His releases challenge the status quo and impress with a unique style informed by elements of techno, house, heavy metal, pop and drone music. His debut album, ‘Bible Eyes’ was released in 2011 to critical acclaim from Pitchfork, The Wire, Spinner, Fader, and others.

Egyptrixx

With the tons of hyped up (but utterly mediocre) dance music that comes out these days, it�s pretty hard to stand apart from the herd; not the case with Toronto�s Egyptrixx. In just over one year, his distinct sonic aesthetic has become an acclaimed presence in underground music, garnering praise from heavyweight DJ�s, including Sinden, Mary ... more info
