Following transmissions from Nubian Mindz and Cyclonix this year, Phuture Shock Musik returns to welcome new signing Damián Botigué aka Karmasound to the fold, who makes his debut outing on wax with the six-track strong ‘Probabilidades’ EP.
Hailing from Buenos Aires, though currently residing in Barcelona, the Argentine musician and producer has plied his trade for a number of years, which has yielded collaborative projects and releases beyond his homeland; including the self-released ‘Magnetic Love’ EP and later compilation appearances on Tokyo Dawn and BBE records as one half of electronic soul act Saturn’s Children - with London soul singer-songwriter Emeson. While further production has surfaced on releases by Spanish hip hop outfit K.A.O.S, collaborative works under the moniker Evan& Damian, not to mention a few low-key efforts of his own.
Here on ‘Probabilidades’ EP, Karmasound widens his highly musical, soulful sound, and delivers an electronic-tinged release, where his South American heritage and Latin musical roots remain at the core, while traversing through broken beat, hip hop, jazz, fusion, funk and Afro-Latin flavours. With six cuts varying in rhythm, tempo and influence, the 12” highlights Botigué’s extremely diverse production style and makes for a perfect introduction to a very fine talent on the rise.
