King Henry and RY X – Destiny

The royal prefix in King Henry’s title suggests opulence, an ironic adjective when it comes to describing the producer’s music—it’s humble and minimal, in the sense that Henry takes exactly what he needs, and nothing more. He’s able to build sonic worlds that are as expansive as they are inviting: each song is steeped in a rich simplicity, with “Destiny” being the perfect example of this talent. Percussion immediately surrounds you from all sides as RY X’s voice draws you in, and King Henry’s understated, deliberate choices in production amplify the song’s emotional lyrics. Despite being subtle, Henry’s work always makes one thing very clear: his artistry will reign.
