Special to the Daily King Britt spins at Samana Saturday.

VAIL – King Britt has been called a pioneer of all things soulful, rhythmically textured and meloidcally provocative. Samana Lounge in Vail hosts him Saturday at 9.This Philadelphia native has found a way to escape the strictures of a single category of music by expressing his creations through deep house, hip-hop, broken beat, nu-jazz, funk and afro-tech. Whether its film scoring for Hollywood, rocking a dancefloor in Tokyo or consulting for the leading urban lifestyle brands,there are no limits to what King Britt will do next.

His list of accomplishments starting in the early ’90s when he was the DJ for Digable Planets. He formed the soulful band Sylk130, introduced the world to Ursula Rucker through her spoken words mixed with beats, was co-label owner of Ovum Music with Josh Wink and just recently did a film score for the 2006 release of “Miami Vice” the movie.For more information, visit his Web site at
