Karizma

What, the name Karizma doesn’t ring a bell? It’s probably because the house music DJ/producer is constantly touring—or, just as likely, because house doesn’t get the local love it once did. In the ’90s, Chris “Karizma” Clayton was making Baltimore club tracks for Unruly Records and churning out some of the more bizarrely long cuts in the genre. He teamed up with Basement Boy DJ Spen and put his skills into house music, consistently gaining in popularity outside of America in the past decade and, a few years ago, releasing his full-length production debut and forging collaborations from West London to Canada to New York. House music is deep in Baltimore’s DNA, and we’re just glad Karizma’s keeping it alive, even if it’s not in Baltimore.
