After unveiling the dreamy titular lead single in May, multifaceted musician, instrumentalist, and producer Frédéric Rivière – alias Anoraak – is pleased to share his full 5-track Karma EP. A love letter to his most beloved genre, the Karma EP effortlessly blends poolside disco with French-Moroccan singer/songwriter Sarah Maison’s hypnotizing French lyricism. The Karma EP is available to stream now via Anoraak’s imprint Endless Summer.
When listening to Karma, the organic chemistry between Rivière and Maison is undeniable. The 5 tracks combine pop, disco, house, and indie elements as an homage to one of dance music’s most darling genres. While the tracks build together to create the near-illusion of a continuous, uninterrupted listening experience, where Karma shines the most is in the details. “Gaby”, which premiered on KCRW, plays with Maison’s Moroccan heritage with the introduction of Arabic lyrics. “I Know You Know” plays with flourishing guitar riffs while “Levantine” dials back the tempo with a bongo-like choir. The EP’s closing – and lengthiest – track, “Rush (12” edit)”, juxtaposes Maison’s sensual vocals with powerful elements of funk.
To complement the EP release, Rivière and Maison teamed up to produce a dreamy 70s inspired music video for the titular track, “Karma”. The video was filmed at the Sacré Club in Paris, and features a live band rendition of the track, with Rivière on the bass.
