We are journalists, film directors, musicians, artists, and philosophers with the simple mission to create and promote visual, musical, and tactile art.
A collective was established in 2013 by five amateur MCs at Ithaca College: Llama Ruckus, The Muse, That Riz, Too-Faced, and Special K.
After a few members of the original group graduated, Special K and Llama Ruckus - with a new member, JaG - founded the Atlantic Coast Cypher as a musical collective. The ACC started out just making music "that came organically" in the chemistry of their creative habits.
Eventually the remaining ACC members met more musicians throughout 2014, as co-workers, classmates and neighbors. Artists from Atlanta, New York, Boston, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Cleveland, and Maine - gradually connected as a whole; the new members grew the cypher into a production collective. The collective now known as Kingdom of Gardens Productions started meeting weekly to jam and experiment with different genre fusions out of our makeshift studios.
For folks who divide their time with school, multiple jobs, and family, we we love to tell relatable stories in our creations for all levels of struggle and imperfection. However, all criticism is valued, as we look to improve as much as we can.
We love making any genre of music... from funk, blues, acoustic jams, and psychedelic rock to trip-hop, trap, and R&B.
In addition to our latest venture into music journalism, we've begun an expansion into visual projects, through our director and producer, JaG. (All projects will soon be linked in the gallery page.)
