Karezza will arrive in May through Chloe and Ivan Smagghe's Kill The DJ label.
George Issakidis will release his debut solo album, Karezza, on Kill The DJ in May.
Issakidis has been releasing music for more than 15 years, both solo and as a regular collaborator with Speedy J and one half of The Micronauts duo with Christophe Monier. As a solo artist, he's been dropping a mixed bag of techno, downtempo and house on a variety of labels, including Artefact, NoveMute and his own The Republic of Desire. Issakidis's forthcoming album will be the first time he's committed music to wax for Kill The DJ, the imprint founded by Parisian veterans Chloe and Ivan Smagghe. Karezza sees him stretch out across nine tracks, and features collaborations with Perc and Ed Banger regular Mickey Moonlight. The album will be preceded by a 12-inch single featuring remixes of album track "Cherry Red" from It's A Fine Line (AKA Ivan Smagghe and Tim Paris) and Issakidis himself as Dzir.
