KingRat's Golden Melodica Melodies


Feeling a bit camera shy


Kingrat is an instrumental and Dub Reggae group from Atlanta. They play in a style influenced by roots dub but with more of a focus on extended improvisation, like double long instrumental versions with dub breaks... reggae rhythms with extended experimentations by melodica, saxophone, and guitars. In order to recreate the feeling and process of Dub, the band is all routed into a mixing board with reverb and delay units and dubbed live. This gives a totality to the sound and produces the unique effect of allowing the entire mix to be continously mutated and streched, with instruments dropping in and out, drastically shifting the emphasis of the different elements of the mix. There are many styles that influence KingRat's rhythms... touches of funk, ska, rhythm and blues, latin and Jungle/DnB. Kingrat is a young group hoping to eventually form a huge horn section and destroy the Atlanta music scene.
KingRat has opened for reknowned performers like Fishbone, Bill Summers, Ike Stubblefield, and Colonel Bruce.
