Drumming on all kinds of household equipment and jamming on the guitar until his fingers hurt, it was pretty clear that a path into music was set. When and how was not yet clear at that time.
It was in 2003 that Karmon came into contact with electronic music through his older brother. At that time experimenting with different styles and setups with mild success, it wasn’t until early 2012 when the artist now known as Karmon was born. Having experienced various flows of electronic music he now set out to develop his own style and with great success. In a matter of months top chart productions were coming out of the Karmon studio. Starting out with his debut release “Turning Point” on Sintope Digital and then followed up with “Wowshit” on Diynamic.
All this talent surely could not go by unnoticed, in the summer of 2012, Solomun had already been playing Karmon’s tracks and soon after asked him to join their agency (DIY).
The studio remained Karmon’s comfort zone where he could experiment and design new sounds, and 2013 represented a ripening of his signature style as a producer, with appearances on Exploited and 2 EPs out on Sintope Digital. Besides the assiduous work in the studio, taking his productions to the dance floor established him as a recognizable DJ with a worldwide fanbase. His sets always represent a composition and are imprinted with his melodic sound, making an impression with track selection and flow.
2014 was a year of transition for Karmon from a highly specific sound, that most artists develop after a long time, taking it to a minimalistic approach. The progression came gradually, experimenting in his sets and metamorphosing into a mature artist. The focus shifted to a heavy touring schedule, playing on 4 continents, gathering experience from the dance floor and getting closer to the crowd.
