BACKGROUND AND BEGINNING
Since his early childhood, Karter got influenced by music. Artists such as Barry White, Salt-N-Peper, Marvin Gaye, Manu Dibango, Pepe Kale, and more were a big part of his collection.
Music has always been a part of his life and something to deeply dive into. As a teenager, he created his own music collections and CD compilations. Through the years he started creating and sharing his unique playlists. It was his friends who came up with the idea of him becoming a DJ and share his music by performing live. One day, he decided to buy a DJ controller and started mixing different sounds in his room.
In the beginning, he started playing at private parties and ceremonies (e.g. home parties, birthdays, weddings, etc.). Soon after, he began to perform at trendy clubs and bars in Zurich (e.g. the Vior, Plaza, Hiltl and Hardone), and at festivals such as the Afro Fashion Festival and the Afro Summer Jam. Thanks to his involvement in various projects in the African community, Karter now travels all around Switzerland to bring his music to the people.
STYLE AND INSPIRATION
Karter is inspired by a wide variety of musical genres; to name a few, contemporary Afro music, EDM and urban music with a burning desire to deliver a great performance with unique sound and energy.
Karter gets inspired by great artists and DJs like DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Angelo, Boddhi Satva, Black Koffee, Destructo, Tchami, and many more - people who make him strive for perfection. He is aiming to merge ideas and do something unique everytime he is doing a set – through a sound that takes people somewhere else. The ultimate goal is to achieve that excellence.
