What King Britt has done in the past could be considered very important.
His curiosity has paved the way for the artist he is now. From creating house tunes for the legendary Strictly Rhythm, djing for Sector 6 comrades Digable Planets, starting Ovum Recordings with techno wunderkind, Josh Wink, being tapped to underscore Michael Mannʼs Miami Vice and various commercials, to curating a full day at MoMA PS1 in New York, the list goes on and on.
But King feels we put too much importance on the past and not the present.
Presently, he is exploring many afro sonic possibilities with his Hyperdub released, Fhloston Paradigm project, The Phoenix. His aural experiments with friends appear on his imprint, The Buddy System Project and his recent curatorial pursuits have placed him in many academic environments, bridging the worlds of club, experimental and black music.
This way of thinking has resonated with like minded individuals globally, creating a pow- erful following and well respected fan base.
Kingʼs creativity is at a point where process meets end result. It's the journey and not the destination. No limitations.
Come join the ride.
Preservation Hall Jazz
New Orleans’ Preservation Hall was established in 1961 to honor one of America’s truest art forms – Traditional New Orleans Jazz. Operating as a music venue, a touring band, and a non-profit organization, Preservation Hall continues its mission today as a cornerstone of New Orleans music and culture.
Situated in the heart of the French Quarter on St. Peter Street, the Preservation Hall venue presents intimate, acoustic New Orleans Jazz concerts over 350 nights a year featuring ensembles from a current collective of 100+ local master practitioners. On any given night, audiences bear joyful witness to the evolution of this venerable and living tradition.
Picking up the mission where his parents left off, Ben Jaffe began a series of initiatives centered around expanding listenership to the music both at the Hall and on tour. As the years continued, the band began and welcomed a number of collaborative tours and recordings with artists outside of the traditional jazz genre including the Blind Boys of Alabama (gospel), Mos Def (hip-hop), the Del McCoury Band (bluegrass), My Morning Jacket (rock), and even a modern dance/ballet collaboration with critically-acclaimed choreographer Trey McIntyre.
In addition to rejuvenating the music, Preservation Hall engages with the New Orleans cultural community emphasizing education and social programming. Persevering through the hardships of Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill, the Preservation Hall team created and supported organizations such as The Preservation Hall Music Outreach Program and the New Orleans Musician’s Hurricane Relief Fund (NOMHRF), in addition to partnering with local institutional partners such as The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, and the Make It Right Foundation.
