Leaving Records Drops Debut Album by Inglewood’s Kara
The LP dropped today, alongside an EP by Devonwho, with proceeds of both going to LA's Youth Justice Coalition.
Over the last decade, Daniels has focused his work around the saxophone and is currently attending Jazzcampus in Basel, Switzerland, where he studies and performs in the Focusyear program. In his downtime, he has been diving into electronic music and beat-making as Kara, with Colors the first taste of his work in that realm.
Colors, which was recorded, mixed, and mastered in Daniels’ bedroom, comprises 20 groove-focused cuts that feature Daniels’ saxophone work throughout and tip a hat to the beat scene of his home city, Los Angeles.
Alongside Colors, Leaving Records dropped an EP by Devonwho, titled Offworld, which was recorded between 2017 and 2020, recorded entirely with the Elektron Digitakt and Sequential Prophet Rev2/08, Novation Bass Station II, and Roland Gaia SH-01 synthesizers.
