Heavily influenced both by U.K. Garage and American R&B, Kingdom is the stage name of the Brooklyn-based DJ Ezra Rubin. Born in Massachusetts and relocating to New York at the tender age of 18, Rubin made a name for himself with residencies spinning at some of NYC's hottest clubs. The buzz Kingdom generated from these parties garnered him attention from A-Trak and Nick Catchdub's Fools Gold label, which released his debut single, Mind Reader, in 2010.
