Premiere: K2T – The Sanctuary’s Kingdom

We’ve got a very special premiere from Detached Audio boss K2T today as he unveils the first Sampler EP from his forthcoming debut LP for the label! The Sanctuary’s Kingdom combines Karan’s love of old school tinged breakbeats with his talent for emotive melody and compositional depth, for a track that is mysterious and uplifting in equal measure. We can’t wait to hear the rest of the album…but in the meantime you can grab the Elder Spirit EP on Mar 29th.

All profits from the release will go to the charity Help Musicians UK which provides grants and support for musicians, including running the enormously important Music Minds Matter project to support musicians’ mental health. Great music for a great cause…get to know.
