* The music featured in our Kickstarter video is original music from the upcoming Kingdom Crumbs album.
KINGDOM CRUMBS is the effort of four creative minds combining our unique strengths and talents to create our most ambitious musical project ever. Comprised of hometown favorites Helladope (Tay Sean and Jerm) with the added expertise of Cloud Nice family members Jarv Dee and Mikey Nice, Kingdom Crumbs stretches the boundaries of an already heavily experimental genre to create an experience sure to shatter a few stereotypes about hip-hop music.
Our album plays like a lucid dream, documenting our astral travels through the ethereal using a wide range of rich sounds and textures. The inspiration for the music comes from a wide range of sources, from entrancing tribal drums to the technical precision of electronic music, from the tension and release of improvisational jazz to the stutter and bounce of deep funk.
Together, we have composed, written and recorded the music entirely by ourselves over the course of the past year, being extremely thoughtful about our every step. As artists our nature is to give, which is why we feel strongly about releasing our album for free.
Now we need your help to ensure that our musical offering reaches the world by backing it with a solid marketing plan and some of intriguing visuals to accompany the music. Your support will also help us print up physical copies of the album and promotional materials.
