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 "Tomorrow", 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 "Elephunk". Many of his productions have been championed by the likes of Louie Vega, Simon Dunmore, Dj Spinna, Marques Wyatt, Tony Humphries and many more. Karizma is also an accomplished international dj, one of the most innovative on the scene.


Karizma - A Mind Of It's Own- Version 2.0 The Upgrade
After setting 2007 alight with his award winning debut solo album A Mind Of Its Own Karizma returns with the highly anticipated sequel: A Mind Of Its Own- Version 2.0 The Upgrade ! Karizma continues to defy categorization as he moves between his customarily ferocious club bangers through down-tempo burners, atmospheric soundtracks and even smoothed out soul with featured vocalists Monique Bingham, Fruity and Djinji Brown on rap duty. Karizma s trademark fusion of raw electronic grooves transcend through the house, broken, dubstep and so called funky house scenes, his raw style influencing beatmakers across the genres. Karizma has been putting in the work in 2008 tearing up dancefloors the world over from the far-east, throughout Europe and coast to coast in the U.S. In That time he produced over 20 tracks for this album, (additional tracks available digitally) not to mention remixes for numerous artists including 4 Hero, Osunlade and Dennis Ferrer s Objektivity label. On A Mind Of Its Own V2.0 The Upgrade Karizma has raised the bar once again as he continues to find new ways to rock clubs, cars and headphones worldwide.
