EXIST (Atjazz, Karizma) - Live @ Mixmag Lab 2014

The Lab is our weekly office rave up where we live stream some of the biggest and best names in dance music from genres across the board. This week guarantees to be special as we welcome two true house music masters in the form of Atjazz and Karizma.

Fresh from their recent performance at Southport Weekender and playing under their collaboration name EXIST, the two have combined their love, knowledge and vibe impeccably to deliver an epic, high energy journey of sonics. EXIST brings a stripped back sound, combining modern broken beats with soulful vocals and they play the whole thing live (the Lab is on 3 CDJs but even then it's as live as they can be.)

Atjazz was one of the forerunners of the broken beat and nu-jazz scene, producing tracks like 'Touch The Sun'. Recent collaborations with the likes of Osunlade have combined soul, jazz-funk and africanism into the deepest house grooves. You can check them out on his weekly 'Your Soul' podcast.

Karizma aka Kaytronik is a house music artist in the purist form. His back catalogue includes releases on the likes of R2 Records, Objektivity and Strictly Rhythm while the man has worked with legends like Kenny Dope, Roy Ayers and even J Dilla.
