Karizma @ Block, 2.10.09
Yes, we’re totally psyched about Karizma’s arrival to our shores. Ever since the Block opened it’s doors, he’s the one name we’ve been constantly asking for. One of our favorite producers, a man with a sound & feel of his own, so many of his tracks have been staples of our DJ sets (The Damn Thing, Twyst This, Kong, 33rd St Anthem, the recent Necessary Madness & Drumz Nightmare & so many more) . And as much as his sound is distinct, he’s output over the years has been extremely influential on so many genres and producers around the globe – from broken beats to UK funky, Baltimore club (practically stemming from his, Spen’s & the other Baltimore pioneers’ early productions) , techno and the percussive & syncopated variety of dubstep we like so much, and of course the deep & soulful house scene he’s a major part of.
But it ain’t just that – his sound – as he’s also a phenomenal DJ. Though we’ve yet to hear him live ourselves, some of these youtube’s are enough to wet our appetite, and most probably will do the same to yours. We’ll be opening the night, getting y’all ready with a deep/percussive set on a house tip, and homie DJ Hectik on the other end. Unmissable.
