Listen to Kingdom's 'Vertical XL' EP
- Words: Glenn Jackson
LA-via-NYC producer Kingdom dropped his Vertical XL EP earlier this week, presenting a diverse range of productions—led by the sultry, Kelela-featuring "Bankhead"—that marked the man's first official release since 2011. Now the seven-track effort is available to stream in full. Appearing on Kingdom's own Fade to Mind label, which he co-runs alongside Nguzunguzu, Vertical XL begins in somewhat R&B-friendly territory before diving deep into more sinister efforts full of booming machine rhythms and ghostly melodies. The EP can be streamed in its entirety via the player below.
