Karizma presents Beats & Bobs Vol.2 – Coming Soon


Karizma’s “Beats & Bobs” series of raw beats and basement edits continues with 2 more killah kuts from the Karizma vaults.

Klearkut has the trademark steady yet infectious build up of groove that Karizma works so well, overlaid with multi-textured percussive and melodic stabs and flows. Part house, electronic, afro, tech – it’s essentially impossible to categorize.

Earth These Beats sees Karizma return to beat-workout-tool territory with this 10 minute exploration of the many ways to flip a beat. Hypnotic bliss.

Available at all good digital platforms from 27th October 2014.

Sy Sez feat. Phoenix Pearle “Send Me High”


Sy Sez has been steadily building his reputation as a DJ, producer and radio presenter on the soul and house scene for the last few years.

“Send Me High” sees Sy step back from the four to the floor house style to provide a delicious mid-tempo soul burner featuring Phoenix Pearle on vocals and hotly tipped newcomer Henry Wu on keys. The result is modern UK soul at it’s best.

Sy’s Dub strips away the vocal and let’s Henry loose on the keys for the full dubbed out London vibe.

If that wasn’t enough, Karizma slips into his Kaytronik mode on the Hydro Mix to provide a full electronic workout, complete with signature rugged beats and funked-up groove that will burn a hole in any dance-floor. The Hydromental Mix is also included for those that want to keep riding that groove.

Finally, we also include the Original Demo mix – highlighting the song’s original dub-soul-house feeling to complete the package.

Available from 13th October 2014 on all good digital platforms.

Volume 1 kicks off the series with “Bounce B*” an explosive bouncing groove built to dispel all negative forces and ill vibes.

“Tech This Out” (Kaytronik Dub) sees Karizma revisit this classic to provide a teched out dub workout – to devastating effect.

Finally, “K to the P” has Karizma delving into the Hip-Hop Mash-Up crate to round off Vol.1 nicely.
