Read more about the artist:
Reto and Kasem began making music in Sydney in October 2000. We were called Flying Mouse then and quickly found the sound that we still possess today. We played with a few folks along the way, but when we left Sydney for London King With No Throne was born with a sound that has elements of drum and bass, and Electro-Trance reminiscent of Massive Attack, Portishead and Radiohead.
King With No Throne originated in the lyrics of the song King With No Throne. Irena, a London filmmaker felt this would be a great name for us. We decided to make it our name as the image of a wondering mystical king who imagines and makes worlds from the fountain of his mind. This parallels closely with the way we feel about the creative journey of being music makers and creating sounds that resonate with something wondrous, mysterious and beautiful about life.
