Black Market Karma can be loosely described as psychedelic. It’s a thick and colourful sound, like sonic jam. The core of it is rooted in 60’s guitar and pop music, definitely leaning towards an analogue sensibility but without being totally retro. It’s a sound with power and bite but it isn’t particularly heavy either. Aided by the use of vintage equipment: Old guitars and tube amps, fuzz pedals, reverbs and delays. The drums can get pretty baggy and loose and it has a lot of groove.
It’s a pastiche of many influences. It’s psychedelic rock, it’s electronic folk, it’s 60’s dance floor, it’s traditional Indian music, it’s hip hop groove, it’s spaced out, lo fi electronica.
