King Britt brings Afrofuturism to the classroom to celebrate the contributions of black innovators in electronic music. From the past and present, King explores how they shape the future.
A prolific producer, composer, beatmaker and educator, King James Britt creates all types of music, mainly in the realm of the electronic, but deeply rooted in Black music of the diaspora. “Blackness informs all my decisions. I play ‘sound’ in many forms,” says King.
“I look at any challenge right in its face and say you can’t stop authenticity; the light and power are too strong.”
