Thee Album

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.

“Thee Album” contains electronic explorations of down-tempo beats, club bangers and funky house grooves, not to mention thought provoking messages about where we stand in the current global climate.


Karizma has been forging club bangers in his lab for so many years, so the R2 label felt it was time to bring together some of his most sought-after jams on one very special package.

"Collection 1999-2011" contains certified classics such as “The Power” (including the previously unreleased “No Piano” version), the highly sought after “Twyst This” (which fetches in excess of £50 on discogs) and the classic “In Tha Deep”. It also contains the fierce new tracks “The Bangah” and “Again”, plus six previously unreleased hidden ('hidden', as in 'not listed on the sleeve') bonus tracks. Karizma's vibe is a mix of soulful house, tough and funky nu-jazz breakers and head-nod hip hop-soul, all of which sounds fantastic to these ears.

To make this package extra special and unique, Karizma has individually hand sprayed each of the 500 album sleeves. No two are the same. It took months of work. It will never be repeated!!! Get it while you can.


Karizma returns with a heavy remix package featuring versions by Osunlade, Atjazz, Deep Order and Karizma himself. Yoruba Soul legend Osunlade has transformed “Good Morning” (featuring my favourite vocal diva Monique Bingham on the mic) into a deliciously jazzy soul extravaganza. Oooh, it's sending shivers down my spine... Next up, Karizma takes his own track and gives it his distinctive four-to-the-floor house treatment turning this soulful song into a dancefloor beast as only he know how. Then flip to the B-side for a truly astonishing tech-house remix of “Groove A ‘K’ Ordingly” from the one and only Atjazz, causing absolute dancefloor mayhem. Just wait for the bass to kick in on this one - Phwoar! Add to that a broken beat / techy UKF dub from the mysterious Deep Order, (from the Atjazz label) and I think we have a hit.
