You have no idea how long we’ve been trying to get a Karizma mix for.
One of the world’s premiere house producers for well over a decade now, the Baltimore man has released on countless labels – amongst them R2, Defected and Objektivity – and has a serious arsenal of classics under his belt, from soulful vocal house anthems to heavyweight instrumentals; skewed hip-hop to spiraling drum psychedelia. Equally revered by house veterans and up-and-coming iconoclasts, Karizma is quite simply that guy.
Karizma recently teamed up with long-term collaborator Spen for the latest in Defected’s Housemasters compilations series. Karizma’s not simply a great producer though, he’s one of the world’s most unique DJs, effectively using one CDJ as a sampler as he wades through multiple minute blends and dramatic tempo switches, cutting from house to hip-hop and back in the bat of an eye.
Check the mix now; Osunlade, Altered Natives, Gil Scott-Heron and numerous Karizma edits feature.
