Kingdom + Nguzunguzu (Photo: Ed Gumuchian /

Kingdom has been around the musical block, so to speak. Over the last few years he's put in the hours and put out a range of genre-defying and forward-thinking tracks on a number of great labels. In fact he's even recently started his own imprint 'Fade to Mind'. First release on Kingdom's label? The 'Timesup EP' by Nguzunguzu, a duo similarly respected for pushing the boundaries of contemporary dance music. We managed to catch up with both Kingdom and Nguzunguzu before our show at Pop Montreal 2011, and the meeting of wise experience and youthful verve was as insightful off stage as their music is bumping on it.
