What King Britt has done in the past could be considered very important.
His musical curiosity has paved the way for the artist he is now. From composing house tunes for the legendary Strictly Rhythm and Nervous Records, djing for Sector 6 Grammy Award winning comrades Digable Planets, starting the legendary 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.
He feels we put too much importance on the past and not the present. Presently, he is exploring many afro-sonic musical possibilities with his Hyperdub released, Fhloston Paradigm project, The Phoenix. His aural experiments with friends appear on his imprint, The Buddy System Project and Drip subscription exclusives. His recent curatorial pursuits have placed him in many academic environments (he is a Pew Fellowship winner), bridging the worlds of club, experimental and black music.
This way of thinking has resonated with like minded individuals globally, creating a powerful 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.
DJ Kemit. CEO of Kemit Muzik, Inc. Kemit divides his time between DJing, music production and being a family man.
Pulling together a who’s who of soul, funk and R&B talent for his debut album, EVERLASTING, would have been a feat for any other producer. But not for KEMIT.
He nabbed the heavy-hitters: Grammy-nominated vocalist ERRO, aka Eric Roberson; hip-hop super crew Hieroglyphics producer Kev Choice; co-vocalist from U.K. soul sensation Loose Ends, Carl McIntosh; Jean Baylor of Zhane; Craig Love, producer for Usher; soul powerhouse N’Dambi; along with Frank McComb, who has a debut of sorts himself on EVERLASTING behind the keys.
While EVERLASTING recently has taken center stage, DJ KEMIT has long been a sought-after producer for remixes such as “Still” by ERRO, “On the Beach” by Leon Ware, the Billboard hit song “4Evermore” and the remix of "4evermore" for David’s EP “Location, Location, Location.”
DJ KEMIT is also internationally known for his production work as one-half of KemeticJust. The duo’s two dozen releases -- on labels such as King Street, Nite Grooves, Yoruba Records, Giant Step, Diaspora Recordings, Wave Music, Bombay Records and Play Records -- are still praised within the underground house music scene.
KEMIT left hip hop group, Arrested Development in 1996, but not without recognition for his production work on the group’s Grammy-nominated second album, Zingalamaduni.
Tastemakers and household names such as Prince, Janet Jackson, Steve Harvey, Jane Fonda, Jermaine Dupree and Bryan Michael Cox have put KEMIT on the short list of the world’s best DJs for nearly 20 years.
And you’ve likely attended or heard of the legendary FunkJazz Kafe, the National Black Arts Festival, the Soul Train Awards, House in the Park, Roy Ayers, Robert Glasper, Musiq Soulchild and Blackstreet – all projects, parties or artists that KEMIT has graced.
KEMIT is instrumental in guiding the house, soul and hip-hop scenes in Atlanta – and beyond. It’s an important task given the city’s influence on American music everywhere. When people look to Atlanta, they have to look to KEMIT – and based on his superlative body of work, past and future, things are looking good.
