EP: KaraKara – Born Thug/Raised Nerd

KaraKara caught our attention earlier this year with his captivating and fun Bully EP which matched an Avalanches sense of pluderphonics with equal amounts recognizable pop samples and original production.  KaraKara recorded Bully in one sitting so I’ve been patiently waiting to hear what would result from a longer time working on his music.  Born Thug/Raised Nerd is KaraKara’s ambitious new EP which demonstrates the Dublin-based producer honing his addictive music formula.  With the EP, KaraKara decided to take on the concept of duality which has each song progressing through multiple and contrasting sections.  The title track opens up with booming horn-based trap production which progresses into synth heavy footwork as the track continues.  Listening through the EP is incredibly exciting as each track moves through sections, styles and samples with an energetic and unexpected pace.  Stream the title track below and the entire EP after the jump.
