From his earliest days as part of Baltimore’s premier crew – The Basement Boys – Kris Klayton was never one to stay in a musical box, always probing beyond the constraints of the soulful house domain.
His Kaytronik persona, (previously reserved for remixes of other artists and a single on Atjazz Record Company) has allowed him greater freedom to explore beat syncopation, mood and impassioned expression further with an album that showcases his ability to work at any tempo, with a variety of styles, but always with the emotional content intact.
“State We In” is the first single taken from the album, a hard driving groove punctuated by a harder hitting narrative on the current disarray in the world as a whole, and the U.S. specifically.
The package also includes “I Say”, a straight up club broken beat banger to help shake off the tension.
Both tracks taken from the full length “Thee Album”- out on 4th March.
