Karizma

Karizma's musical career started with him djing at age 13,doing various fashion shows and college parties,later on he landed a radio show on Baltimore's college radio station WEAA, playing hip hop. at the same time he was playing at various clubs around the city,with an obvious love for house music. He would often bump into Dj Spen and bug him for advice, As fate would have it Spen and Karizma would work together at radio station V103. this prompted the two to work together on his 1st Jasper street company album project. Karizma contributed the song E.B.W.2.R.T.W(Everybody wants 2 rule the world) and did drum programming on the track "Temptation". After this Spen&Karizma worked on Kim English "Tommorrow", Mary J Blige "Beautiful" , Kenny Bobien "Let me show you" and SuSu Bobien's "Thank you" . The rest is history
Spen and Karizma(now with Basement Boys productions), went on to remix Everything but the girl, Amira,Lenny Kravitz,Ann Nesby,Ron Carroll,Roy Ayers,Boris Dlugosh, Bob Sinclar,Kathy Brown,Jocelyn Brown,Ministers de la funk,just to name a few. It was also in these remixes Karizma developed the "deepah dubs" and "deepah ones" moniker for his rendition of the remixes.
Flashing forward ...after a healthy career of remixes and productions, Karizma struck out on his own a formed Kohesive Productions. His first production "Samma Ganni" was released on Basement boys imprint "Elphunk". His remixes, redits and productions are heard weekly at the "Sky Lounge" bar on Thursdays, his residency in Baltimore. Many of his productions have championed the likes of Louie Vega, Simon Dunmore, Dj Spinna,Marquis Wyatt,Tony Humphries and many more.
Karizma is also an accomplished international dj, one of the most innovative on the scene.
Ladies and Gentlemen.......Karizma
