King Ming is the culmination of several weeks of deep studio experimentation and improvisation for multi-instrumentalists Peter Walker, David Ralicke, and Danny Frankel.

King Ming encapsulates the heightened energy and stylistic reference points of reggae and funk while retaining the freeform leanings and dub-y production techniques sometimes present in Arthur King tracks. The trio focus their attention on more raucous, noisy songs built off a foundation of overdriven breakbeats and unorthodox percussive phrases, incorporating the sounds of found objects such as pieces of scrap wood, or a hubcap, alongside conventional drums. Crunched-up bass loops, wild staccato horn lines, buoyant guitars, and spindly keyboards weave around this rhythmic underpinning to form a wall of sound that is both chaotic and deliberate.

Equally indebted to the bold improvisational instrumentation of Miles Davis’ electric period and the opaque, unhinged sonic palette of Latin Playboys, King Ming bypasses easy categorization and stands on its own as a singular, adventurous album of enigmatic compositions.
