Kryptox is the new Berlin label that is dedicated 100% to the new German Neo-Jazz universe. A response to the new UK and US jazz scenes. Like a German version of Brainfeeder and Brownswood records.
This new single by KARABA is a pre-single to the compilation “Kraut Jazz Futurism”. A collection of new German bands that Kryptox will release in november.
Karaba are one of these new young German bands that combine psychedelic Jazz with Krautrock and Afrobeat. Like many of the new German crossover Jazz artists also these kids have been raised with three things: electronic dance music, playing real instruments and knowing all kind of „old“ music through the internet.
Now they combine all this in a new, fresh unpretentious and non academic way.
The KrautJazz Futurism compilation will be released accompaigned by a big UK, US and German press campaign and showcase collaborations with XJazz Festival Berlin and Überjazz festival Hamburg.
