Karl has played many different instruments, mostly focussing on the bass and the computer with a digital audio workstation and various “virtual instruments”. The aspiration is, whether instrumental or with vocals, to sound like a “band” and not very synthetic. He is also collaborating with other musicians on the web, publications on YouTube, Spotify, Deezer etc. and regular airplay at @RadioTfsc His music is a colourful mixture of many genres, starting with the music of his youth: punk, reggae, ska and new wave, and many other influences from metal to funk to so-called world music. The “deepest roots” are in reggae and old Ska / Rocksteady. Bluebeat Shelter plan to release an album with plenty of ideas waiting to be developed.
The song "Autos Only" became one of the winner songs of Clouzine 4. Int. Electronic Music Award in 2020.
