Karizma “Hear And Now” feat. Osunlade 12″ sampler

November 9, 2014

One of the stand out tracks from Karizma’s “Wall Of Sound” album, “Hear And Now” features the inimitable vocals of the mighty Osunlade over a sweet Karizma groove; future sounding, yet reminiscent of days gone by. For this very special 12” release Osunlade has created his own edit of the track, taking the parts and extending the arrangement for his own “Disco Mix”.

Continuing the Yoruba connection, Osunlade has also blessed us with a full on Yoruba Soul Remix of “One Note Jam” taking this club banger to explosive new territory as only he knows how.

Finally, “Nuffin Else” gets its first appearance on vinyl after becoming many people’s favourite off the album to complete this essential package.

Limited Edition Clear Vinyl (500) / Digital available for limited period.

Since his last studio album in 2009 Baltimore native DJ Karizma has been constantly touring the globe bringing his inimitable DJ sets to the people of Earth. Having finally got the urge to go back into the studio sometime last year, Karizma locked himself away for six weeks as he got into his most creatively prolific spell for years. R2 Records are proud to announce the result of this endeavour – “Wall Of Sound”.

Having submitted 43 tracks for this album, (we couldn’t get him to stop making new tracks!) we finally honed, pruned and arranged the material into 3 varying formats: Double CD, Double Vinyl and Bonus Digital Album.

Karizma has once again pushed himself beyond the limits of his previous work, evolving his trademark club bangers and down-tempo beats as well as adding a variety of new and sometimes impossible to categorise music to his armoury, emotional content being the unifying factor.

Karizma has also called on some of dance music heavyweights to collaborate on the album including the mighty Osunlade (Yoruba Records), Rokaz (Neil Pierce & Ziggy Funk), and rising UK talent Sean McCabe.

Here’s a little taster selection…

1. Mama
2. Rimaniss
3. Just A Thing
4. Deeper Than You Know
5. Hear & Now feat. Osunlade
6. Ya Dig
7. Kellah
8. Naycha
9. A Set Purpose

Album released on 2 x CD & 2 x LP on 2nd September 2013.

Pioneer DJ presents KARIZMA JAPAN TOUR ’10

September 6, 2010

“As an artist, I never wanted to be boxed in, and just make house, or just make hip-hop. So I always told myself that as soon as I blossomed into my own thing that I would never just stay to one type of music. I just wanted to do whatever I was feeling at the time. So it’s not a surprise to hear a hip-hop track from me. I always wanted it that way. Artists and DJs shouldn’t be limited to just the genre that they play.”

Such opinions come from the one and only, Karizma, who craftly uses 3 CDJs and others mixing garage classic house, techy jazz house, broken beats, hip hope etc. (boarderless of music) making live beats on the spot as if using music instruments; his such highly influential DJ-ing style has touched many of listeners worldwide, and now as known as a CDJ master honored by the dons of underground music scene, Karizma is finally doing a Pioneer DJ Presents Karizma Japan Tour this fall.

The highlight of this tour must be to witness Karizma share marvelous DJ techniques mastering special features of the Pioneer products, CDJ 2000 and DJM 2000.

The tour kicks in from Thursday, September 16th having Karizma join Dommune, a live streaming site and studio with several cameras capturing the equipment, hands, faces, and ambiance; the mixed result with an impressive set of filters, making for an experience that always feels like it should be released on DVD as is, for a DJ mix show, and will appear in several favorite spots for the fans in Japan during 12 days of this tour.

The man that continues to excel to another level, Karizma. We can expect to see him prove himself as a veteran DJ/CDJ Master, and this tour will definitely be another history for our music culture and industry. Don’t miss it!
