Basementality - Kings and Kingdoms EP


Here we have a HEAVY rarity outta Philly from 1995 by MC, producer and graf artist Jon Doe aka DENSKE aka Culture Livingston. Homeboy has been part of the Philly scene since way back when. He used to write under the name DENSKE and heads might be aware of his excellent documentary "Tag City" which delves deep into the Philadelphia writing scene and in particular the esoteric Gangster hand style of the 60s/70s synonymous with the city. He was also featured in Roger Gastman's "History Of American Graffiti".


So, to the music. There were 3 joints on the 12" that dropped in 1995 [300 copies pressed only] and 6 on the cassette version - here we have 5 of those 6 tracks, 2 of which have never been released on wax. Unfortunately the final track was busted so couldn't be used!! This project was recorded on an old 4-track and never got mastered before pressing so it is dusty, but that adds to the mid 90's flava!


Enjoy the last 90's Herring vinyl drop of 2023 - and good luck trying to find the OG!!!


Shout out to the man like Onur Unal for the connect - much respect due!!


There are 300 copies on CLEAR WAX in trad Herring sticker jacket.
