Los Angeles-based DJ and producer DJ Karaba has shared her new EP, Délivrance, a collection of five personal tracks that focus on an “empowering punch”. Having started her career dancing in Pop music with Drake, Camilla Cabello, and Selena Gomez, she now shows her “renewed artistic purpose as a music maker”.

Karaba comments:

I’m very intense and it’s reflected in everything I do, especially music. My goal being on this earth is to inspire people, especially young black girls, that you can literally do whatever you put your mind into. I’ve come from barely anything, but I have an artistic soul that guided me to where I am today. 

Born in France to a Congolese father and a French-Italian mother, Karaba is able to pull from her foundations of a life “defined by pop music, Afro House, Afro Beats, Amapiano”, and their relationship to dance.

She was initially clued into using the rich sounds from African countries from her early experiences DJing. While spinning a house track, Karaba uncovered all the ways in which music from Africa was being incorporated into these works.

She adds:

The more research I did, the more I saw that there were DJs playing music from my country, and this is where everything  changed for me. I discovered music from the whole continent of Africa and knew I found my niche, my purpose as a musician: To share with people the music from my own people, my  own country.
