Earlier this year Karamanti announced that she will be releasing her second studio album. The project, which was to be shared in May, have been pushed back to August. One of the main reason for the new date is the death of popular audio engineer Tixie, who has been Karamanti‘s personal mixing engineer for the past few years.
When Tixie died and it became clear that there was no way Karamanti and her team would make the initially stated release date, she took advantage of the new time-frame by reaching out to a couple of producers for additional tracks. One of the producer that she invited to work on the record is award winning producer and audio engineer Delroy ‘Phatta’ Pottinger.
Having known each other for many years, Phatta did not hesitate. He immediately responded with two rich, bassy reggae tracks that have already transformed the entire project. For those not familiar with him, Phatta is a recording engineer, mixing engineer and producer whose highly respected and admired in the reggae / dancehall industry. He started working at Anchor Recording Studio in 1993 through to 1997. And after taking time to work on personal projects and touring, he returned to Anchor in 2000 and has been there ever since. Phatta‘s producer credits include songs for Capleton, Half Pint, George Nooks, Sizzla Kalonji, and that is just to name a few.
Other producers that will be featured on Karamanti‘s upcoming album are: Major P (Europe), Arioso Legato (U.S.A.) and Lamar Thompson (Jamaica).
