New Album: Troy Kingi – Shake that Skinny Ass all the Way to Zygertron / New Track ‘Aztechknowledgey’

:: Dope.


This galactic Seventies funk album, is due to what he has been listening to over the last few years, especially Bill Withers, Shuggie Otis, Curtis Mayfield, Al Green and Marvin Gaye. Troy knew that he wanted an outrageous over the top album, and wrote down the most way out song titles he could imagine, all about being out in space. From there he went to the beach with his brother, and every night they would sit in their deck chairs, stare at the stars, and talk about one of the song titles. Each night they discussed the back story of a song, and from there Troy wrote the album. It was never originally intended to be a concept album, but it turned out that way, with three main characters appearing throughout the lyrics, until they all became one. Some of the songs also turned out to be quite lengthy, but it was never intended, they were just as long as they needed to be. The result is a visual album, one where all songs are cinematic and powerful. It grooves, it slides, it moves in a way that just doesn’t happen anymore. [Press Release via Bandcamp]

A big inspiration during the writing process was Shuggie Otis’s ‘Inspiration Information’ album from 1974. Just the overall aesthetic of the album – warm, real pleasing to the ear but weird at the same time. This album ‘ Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron’ is a fictional account of two people from different times & dimensions meeting in the cosmos – falling in love and having a child with golden feet – fulfilling an ancient prophesy written in the hieroglyphics of the coming of the messiah…
