If you’ve been around the drum ‘n bass scene in the late 90s – early 2000s, you’ll remember Karl K‘s collaborations with the likes of Jae Kennedy, Kaos, and Siren. His smash hit, Synapse, was remixed by the boys behind the cult classic, Messiah — Konflict. Karl K’s tracks were also remixed by Concord Dawn and Basic Operations and, in 2004, Dieselboy, Kaos, and Karl K remixed Dom & Roland‘s smash hit, Moulin Rouge from Chronology on Moving Shadow. He is additionally featured on DJ Dara‘s mix series, Breakbeat Exercise.01.
Karl K also joined residents, Dieselboy, Kaos, Method One, Sine, Icon, Mason, and MC’s Dub2, Messinian, Armanni Reign, Sharpness, and Illy Emcee for Philadelphia’s first 21+ drum ‘n’ bass weekly Thursday club night entitled Platinum at Club Fluid, which went through until October 14, 2004.
He was also well known for being in cover bands and playing multiple instruments at mastery level. In 2017, Karl had a life-changing stroke and was unable to continue his day-to-day ‘normal’ activities. He is currently on disability, unable to work and is not making the cut for rent payments.
