Not sure who from the label put this together, but if it’s Rizzla sign me up. Fade 2 Mind is Kingdom’s Night Slugs off shoot based around some really great forward thinking producers and DJs. FADER Magazine

Fade To Mind is not only the sister label to Night Slugs but also the label assembled by Kingdom and his circle. Amongst that circle you will find Prince William, Nguzunguzu, Rizzla + others. The ill thing about their crew is that they are really pushing the sound to other directions that is far from conventional. Part Uk Funky, part lo-fi, and very vogue. With so many hybrid sounds it really is hard to put them in a box, which is a huge plus in my book.
Prince William is an old homie from San Antonio that I met a long time ago when he came into my old record shop and picked up a copy of this Chicks On Speed record I really wanted.
He has lived in Dallas for as long as I can remember and seems to always be on some next shit as well as deeply rooted in the history of club / R&B / electronic music.
Though the mix doesn’t touch in the R&B realm, it still has plenty of soul in it and you can definitely jack to it like nobody’s business.

Magazinereleased the latest in their forward thinking podcast series this time having LA’s Nguzunguzu curate the episode in another creatively programmed mix that they seem to be pretty amazing at.
Reading over the tracklist got me stoked as it has one of current favorite up and comers, Rizzla, amongst the future bass greats.
The mixed marked a big day for the duo, as their newest EP was also released on Kingdom’s newly spawned Night Slugs offshoot, Fade To Mind.
