KAYTRONIK – STATE WE IN
Here’s a clip from Kaytronik’s new release State We In.
Leaving aside the grammatical infelicities of the title, State We In is a great piece of electronica. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, since Kaytronik’s has featured here more than a few times under his Karizma alias. This makes use of some great impassioned samples set against a rippling backdrop that won’t let go.
Blurb: R2 Records are happy to present the first full-length project from Karizma’s alter ego Kaytronik.
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.
“State We In” is the first single taken from the album, a hard driving groove punctuated by a harder hitting narrative on the current disarray in the world as a whole, and the U.S. specifically.
