Hear Benji B's Fade To Mind label focus

Benji B's most recent show on BBC Radio One focused on one of Dummy's favourite labels, the ever-innovative Fade To Mind. Fade To Mind was established by US DJs Kingdom and Prince William as a sister label to the UK's Night Slugs in 2009, but besides a similar sleeve arrangement, they have since outgrown this association. With artists such as Kingdom, Rizla, Nguzunguzu, Fatima Al Qadiri, MikeQ and Kelela in their crew, Fade To Mind are one of the most consistently exciting club imprints around, putting out mutant sounds and elastic rhythms with a style and aesthetic that distinguishes them from their UK counterpart. 

Kingdom provides a mini-mix for this label focus session, playing classic material and forthcoming releases from the label, including this year's Kelela-featuring mini-classic Bank Head – which is one of our favourite tracks of the year so far.

Check out the whole show on BBC iPlayer, or listen to Kingdom's mix separately.
