During the Coronavirus pandemic, I was fortunate to remain working, regularly putting in 50-60 hours a week to keep up with the rigorous demands of the supply chain crisis in America. While I didn’t have the luxury of binge-watching television series, I began searching You Tube for new music every night. This is how I discovered Capital Kings thanks to a couple of mixes by MJ Deech. I wasn’t sure what Electronic Praise was, but I was open to the idea as this sound brought me back to my college days going to night clubs like Pulsations.
Is anyone among you afflicted (ill-treated, suffering evil)? He should pray. Is anyone glad at heart? He should sing praise [to God], James 5:13.
This new era of disco combines hip-hop and rap to form a contemporary version of music. Over the course of their 8-year ministry career, Capital Kings worked with artists like Hollyn and Reconcile to create hit songs. While my favorite song Paradigm isn’t on the attached You Tube, MJ Deech created a music video featuring platform jumping to tie into the lyrics. I’m not sure how long the fad of electronic disco and praise will stick around, but I hope you enjoy the music of Capital Kings this week.
