Basically a solo project for Atlanta producer Chris Brann with the help of DJ cohorts Deep C and Udoh, Wamdue
Productions’ recordings provided one of the few convincing home/club fusions which err, if at all, on the side of the
dancefloor. Unlike the large community of artists more allied to their headphones than a bassbin, Wamdue
productions are easy club favorites, and though they record for the strictly mainstream label Strictly Rhythm,
Wamdue marries intense warmth gained from R&B and house to the tighter rhythms and hard effects of Detroit
techno.

King of My Castle” is a song by American electronic music producer Chris Brann under his Wamdue Project alias,
with vocals by Victoria Blackstone. It was originally released in 1997 as a downtempo song, but became a
worldwide club hit in 1999 when it was remixed by house producer Roy Malone and featured on the 1998 album
Program Yourself. The song peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs. Outside of the
United States, the song topped the charts in the United Kingdom and peaked within the top ten of the charts in at
least 12 other countries, including Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Norway.

The song’s title and lyrics reference Sigmund Freud’s theory of the unconscious which holds that the human ego is
not free and is instead controlled by its own unconscious id (see Id, ego and super-ego)[citation needed]—in Freud’s
own words, “das Ich ist nicht Herr im eigenen Hause” (“the ego is not king of its own castle”). Hence, one of the
song’s two music videos consists of footage from the 1995 anime film Ghost in the Shell, where people with cyborg
implants have their actions controlled against their will by a hacker criminal known in the film as “puppetmaster”.
