Energetic, dynamic and refreshingly unique, King Porter Stomp’s live show for 2014 showcases a brand new world sound. With afro funk horn lines, dub reggae rhythms, harmonious hooks and trademark fast paced conscious rhymes, King Porter Stomp have created their greatest material to date. From 8 very different and talented musical minds, they’ve written collectively with a combined passion and deep respect for one another that unites ideas and crafts music unlike any you will have heard before; “hard to pigeonhole, easy to recommend” (iTunes review).
Their 6 year journey so far has taken them from their hometown of Brighton to perform at major venues and festivals Europe wide. With 2 critically acclaimed albums, a nomination for ‘Best Group’ in the Songlines World Music Awards, a writing and performance commission from Shakespeare’s Globe theatre and a host of collaborative works, King Porter Stomp are now ready to unveil their next exciting musical chapter.
Currently in the studio, the group are recording with legendary producer Mike Pelanconi (Prince Fatty). Having worked with the likes of Graham Coxon, Gregory Isaacs and Lily Allen, Pelanconi’s input into the next King Porter Stomp release will bring their new tracks to even wider audiences. The eagerly anticipated new single, ‘PocketFullOfRocketFuel’ will be accompanied by a live video shot by hard hitting youtube director Ben Dowden which features a 15 piece brass band reworking of the track with live beats supplied by DJ Vadim. With 2 new singles and a host of remixes from the UK’s top producers due out this Spring, King Porter Stomp are continually tapping into new audiences and expanding on a far reaching fan base.
With great universal appeal and a plethora of blistering new tracks, King Porter Stomp move into 2014 as inspirational players of new world music with an all encompassing, vibrant and energetic live show that entertains, enlivens and enlightens!
