Karizma “Fact Mix #286”

These mix series aren’t always my thing. Too many of them come from producers who have no business doing the dj thing. Just predictable stuff you know. Well, this isn’t one of those times. Karizma has been one of my favorite house producers for years but behind the decks the …
