Fly Moon Royalty w/ Kitty Crimes
Dichotomy in a partnership is always tricky, but not for Seattle's Fly Moon Royalty. Bleeding with all the heart and soul of blues and r&b, combined with the contemporary aesthetics of modern day electronica and hip hop, the collaboration of the Seattle-based duo is a perfectly fitting contradiction.
Comprised of soulful vocalist, Adra Boo and DJ/Producer/Emcee Action J, the two-piece are set to release their forthcoming EP, Unfinished Business, this coming February 18, 2014.
Drawing inspiration from artists as diverse as J.Dilla and Bjork, to Stevie Wonder and Betty Davis, the duo quickly caught the attention of DeVon Manier, President of Seattle based indie Hip Hop label Sportn' Life Music Group. Together, the two entities partnered to re-release the debut album as a joint effort, and currently have an ongoing management relationship with the band.
Behind the funk heavy basslines of opening track, "Piece of Me," Adra explains that there's more to the duo than meets the eye. "It's the story of wanting to be seen and understood to the core, not just visually on the surface," a perfect pretense to the following tracks, that flow to the Daft Punk-esque sounds of the electronically driven harmonies of, "DNA," and the hip hop aesthetics of "Step Hard." A flagrant not to the duos eccentric influence, Unfinished Business showcase Fly Moon Royalty's strength in their familiar, yet in no way traditional approach to music.
