Along with their partner in grime crime, King Fantastic and 3 Stripes give us their “Appreciation Remix” just in time for Bassgiving (Friday November 25 at Palm Springs Convention Center). They’re fattening us up with their wobble and bass adding an extra serving of synth heavy beats this season. The tune premiered exclusively on Interview Magazine earlier this week who says, “The hook is an intriguing one given the sonic context, but with results as hot as this, it’s hard to argue the message.”

King Fantastic is not your ordinary musical duo from LA, but then again nothing is ordinary about their music. We’re living in an era where hip-hop progressively feasts itself upon electronic beats and King Fantastic delves head first into both arenas. King Fantastic’s music is nostalgic for the level of skill, originality and authenticity of the underground LA hip hop culture of the late 90s. The freestyle independence from Emcees and musical styles of that era coupled with today’s progressive bass driven dubstep and Drum and Bass scenes gave birth to “Westcoast synthesizer beach bum gangster music” a term tagged by King Fantastic.

Given the diverse upbringings of both producer and internationally known DJ,Troublemaker and Rapper/lyricist Killer Reese One (who is one half of LA underground rap duo Bleu Collar) one would safely say that it’s karma how they united. And the musical climate seems fit to embrace their wildly scandalous taste for dirty beats, hip hop, dubstep, and drum & bass. A prime example is King Fantastic’s latest video “On Q”, a strip Russian roulette with a twist, directed by Randall Kirk II, who also directed their internet famous “Why? Where? What? video which has received over 1 million views.
