After announcing his new project with production duo Triple Parked, Kool Keith returns with a brand new gem titled “Extravagance” to whet the appetite of fans.
The record is purely an exquisite affair into the lifestyle of the privileged and it’s packed with the signature Kool Keith vivid lyrical arrangements and no-frills style that has made him a household name and a cult figure since the late 80s.
Bruno Pronsato of Triple Parked states, “This track took several shapes. We decided to not use a certain track. Faced with a closing deadline and needing something new, Benjamin Jay combined two unused track hooks to bring this into the shape it is now.”
Triple Parked is a production team with roots in Austin, TX and Berlin, Germany, consisting of Steven Ford (Bruno Pronsato, Archangel, NDF) and Benjamin Jay (Persian Malibu, NDF, Lights Fluorescent). The two met in 2009 and have been making music together ever since – mostly in Berlin where both can be seen walking around Prenzlauerberg in matching imaginary black capes laced with ermine and gems. Their debut hip hop project drops with the legendary Kool Keith whom they approached last Spring with an idea for an album about working in a salon – all acrylics and fashion perms. Their beats are for block parties and underwater rhymes and posse’s on Broadway.
