To quote from the iconic 70s soul singer, Donny Hathaway,“... When I think of music, I think of music in its totality, complete – from the lowest blues to the highest symphony.”
After appearing on the two standout ZHU tracks "Still Want You” and “Love that Hurts Karnaval Blues now delivers two stunning singles “Forget” and " You Come with The Rain" from his upcoming EP set for releases via Los Angeles tastemaker label, Mind of a Genius Records. “Rain” stands out for the electronic beats decorated with gorgeous, soulful vocals. "Forget" is a winding electronica cut which drew comparisons to the likes of ZHU and Disclosure while picking up critical praise from the likes of Complex, Clash Magazine and more.
Around two years ago, Karnaval Blues was working in a bank – “a real 9-5, grey and lifeless, stereotypical, mind draining, bad job.” But each evening when headed home, he’d sit back at his desk and dive into a brand-new world: one of jazz samples, lovelorn and fragile vocals, rose-tinted memories. KB’s music has sampling elements from greats like BB King and John Coltrane as well as being rooted in the beat-making world like J Dilla and Nujabes.
‘You Come with The Rain’ introduces Karnaval Blues as an artist that captures the gamut of emotion with a classic sensibility while pushing things forward and into the future.
