“It’s going to be a big March for Baltimore born and bred purveyor of Deep House Karizma, who is releasing his new LP ‘Thee Album’ under his Kaytronik alias at the beginning of the month. The enigmatic producer also has a remix included on the big new Catz ’N’ Dogz remix album (Pets Recordings), which is dropping mid-March and is a high-profile project featuring the likes of Claude Von Stroke, Fred Everything, Jamie Jones and Matthew Herbert.” – magneticmag.com
Karizma’s much anticipated Kaytronik album has arrived!
From his earliest days as part of Baltimore’s premier crew – The Basement Boys – Kris Klayton was never one to stay in a musical box, always probing beyond the constraints of the soulful house domain.
His Kaytronik persona, (previously reserved for remixes of other artists and a single on Atjazz Recordings) has allowed him greater freedom to explore beat syncopation, mood and impassioned expression further with an album that showcases his ability to work at any tempo, with a variety of styles, but always with the emotional content intact.
“Thee Album” contains electronic explorations of down tempo emotive beats, club bangers and impossible to categorize grooves, not to mention thought provoking messages about where we stand in the current global climate.

KAYTRONIK "THEE ALBUM"
Karizma Real Name: Kris Klayton is an award winning International DJ and electronic music producer/artist from Baltimore, MD, USA, known for his wide genre of music production in deep house, deep techno, hip hop, jazz and broken beats, and his ability to master Pioneer Corporation’s CDJ-2000 and DJM 2000 being sponsored by Pioneer Pro DJ Japan in 2010.
“When he’s producing music, Klayton uses a number of aliases. As Kaytronik, he turns out records that are a bit darker, with menacing electronic tones; as K2, he creates buoyant reëdits of R. & B. songs. But as a d.j. he brings all of these characters into the booth with him.”
