Karma Kid‘s latest works ooze early a.m R&B vibes. Smooth and slippery, Sam Knowles’s debut EP for Roche Musique drops on February 2nd paving the way for fans of Disclosure, Bondax and Eton Messy devotees. On the A side, ‘Like I’m on fire’ a steady tempo roller treads a lively, summery cut. Recognising cheerful, uplifting synths and deep shadowy bass the track blends thoughtful breakdowns with shuffle hearty choruses. Flipside, ‘Between Sheets’ blurs the borders of late night guitar, sexy, moonlight piano and enticing percussion with plenty upon plenty of attitude. You’ve never felt so cool.
Be sure to keep an eye on Karma Kid for the following months. 2013 proved to be a fine year, with his last single ‘In My Arms’, topping the XLR8R downloads charts, while his collaboration with Friend Within and Yasmin was named as Disclosure’s favourite summer club record.
