Though he had been making music for years beforehand, he initially made a name for himself in the late 2000s as a DJ on the New York City club scene with a couple different residencies: Vortex, which was launched in 2008, and ddarkk, which included contemporary R&B and U.K. garage mixed alongside electro and house. In the summer of 2010, Kingdom made his commercial production debut with "Mind Reader" on A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs' Fool's Gold label. Featuring vocalist Shyvonne, the ecstatic tune was a big hit on the electro scene, and a concurrently released DJ mix for Fact Magazine also proved popular.
As a follow-up, Kingdom released That Mystic, a five-track EP on Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990's Night Slugs label. Dreama, a four-cut EP of fierce club tracks on Night Slugs, and the poppier dance single "Take Me" for Fool's Gold both appeared in 2011. During that year, Rubin moved to Los Angeles and started the Fade to Mind label/collective along with Nguzunguzu, Prince William, and Total Freedom. Acting as a U.S.
counterpart to the British Night Slugs, the label aimed to release experimental yet accessible dance tracks that tore down boundaries between mainstream and underground culture. Kingdom's late-2012 EP VIP Edition included his remix of Ciara's "Goodies." Kingdom made his biggest impact yet in 2013. His Vertical XL EP included the single "Bank Head," which helped make a breakout star of its vocalist, Kelela. An extended version of the song (along with two other Kingdom-produced tracks) appeared on Kelela's widely acclaimed debut mixtape, Cut 4 Me, which appeared on Fade to Mind in October of 2013.
For the next few years, Rubin was musically active as a producer or remixer for other artists (including Chvrches, Glass Animals, and Dawn Richard), but didn't release any of his own productions until "Shox" surfaced in 2016. "Nothin," sung by the Internet's Syd, appeared later in the year. In 2017, Kingdom released his long-awaited full-length debut, Tears in the Club, a further refinement of his experimental club sound. In addition to Syd, other guests included SZA and Najee Daniels.

The group, which also included guitarist John Toyne, bassist Ed Nelson and drummer Gary Varga, was playing the California circuit as Parish when they were discovered by DJ Dr. Demento (Barry Hansen), who was then working as a director of product development at the Fantasy-associated Specialty Records. The band signed with Specialty and changed their name to Kingdom.
Their self-titled debut appeared in 1970. Going out of print soon after its release, the album became a rare find for prog rock and acid rock collectors until 2001, when the Akarma label reissued it on 180-gram vinyl. Akarma issued a CD version of the debut in early 2006. ~ David Jeffries, All Music Guide  Kingdom is rapper from Denver, Colorado  Kingdom is a polish death metal band.
