King Britt is an American DJ and record producer from Philadelphia.
His musical curiosity has paved the way for the artist he is now. From composing house tunes for the legendary Strictly Rhythm and Nervous Records, djing for Sector 6 Grammy Award winning comrades Digable Planets, founded the legendary Ovum Recordings with techno wunderkind, Josh Wink, being tapped to underscore Michael Mannʼs Miami Vice and various commercials, to curating a full day at MoMA PS1 in New York, the list goes on and on.
Supporters came to use their art to speak out against the current laws.
Accordingly, the art all has the focus of raising awareness of sentencing laws in Pennsylvania.
This charity and movement has meetings. Supporters have joined from all types of artists around Pennsylvania.
