Little is known about who or what is exactly behind the electronic dance artist Karma Fields, but the rumored advanced artificial-intelligence producer made its abrupt debut appearance on Monstercat’s weekly podcast in March 2015, giving listeners a peak of its alluring debut single “Build The Cities,” a collaboration with Estonian vocalist Kerli (with visual artist Raven Kwok handling the accompanying video’s art direction).
The producer has since released its debut album New Age | Dark Age in 2016, and has even played acclaimed live shows in New York, Vancouver, and L.A. Karma Fields’ live shows — such as Saturday’s set at Mezzanine — include a 20-foot-by-19-foot hexagonal structure known as “The Hex,” complete with custom lighting and impressive visuals, which will make its San Francisco debut on Saturday night.
Recently, Karma Fields has released excellent collaborations with Tove Lo and Little Boots — “Colorblind” and “You and Me” respectively — which fueled speculation among fans that the producer’s second album is drawing near, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
