about

Karate Boogaloo ​bring you ‘KB’s Mixtape No. 2’, reminding us of the beauty of colouring outside the lines; their unconventional funk guided by a steadfast commitment to bending the rules.

2018’s KB’s Mixtape No. 1, a self-produced and released collection of interpretations of hip hop samples done in Karate Boogaloo’s immediately recognisable wonky style is fast becoming a cult classic amongst Melbourne’s diggers, selling out in local record stores through word of mouth alone.

Now in late 2019, The KB’s bring you the second in their ‘KB’s Mixtape’ series with songs from the 80s that were sampled into your favourite hits​. Songs by Blondie, Kraftwerk, Patti LaBelle & Stevie Nicks sampled by artists such as Destiny’s Child, Kanye West, Jay Z, Mariah Carey & Warren G, all flipped and twisted in Karate Boogaloo’s unique way.

KB consistently sit in their own lane – their combination of raw musicianship and sheer time on the clock playing together in the studio and on stage gives them a glowing presence rarely seen. Making records, they follow their own rules; recording and mixing on tape with no plugins and no edits, releasing exclusively in mono. It’s not about anachronism, it’s about the KB manifesto: a chosen set of limitations forcing a specific outcome, an outcome best appreciated through their “KB’s Mixtape” series of LPs.
