‘New Album’ is where a band or artist answers some questions about their latest release. Up next is Wellington producer Clae Baxter aka Kariiiba, whose latest album ‘Hot Shower Muzak’ was released earlier this month.

When/where was the new album recorded?
The album was made over the last couple of years, at home in my bedroom!

Who produced/engineered the album? How did the tracks come together in the studio, or at home?
I produced HOT SHOWER MUZAK entirely by myself! I have recently been sorting through a whole heap of unreleased music, and these particular 12 tracks came together as single project based upon a shared lush, bouncy, spicy aesthetic that I came to know as HOT SHOWER MUZAK. I have another couple of releases coming up that were created in the same way, sorting through my beats and grouping songs together based on their ‘vibe’.

How did the songwriting happen? Are there any overall themes within the songs/album?
Making music is like a game to me, it’s my ideal leisure activity, so the album really just stems from me mucking around and having fun in my DAW in my evenings or on the weekend.

Were you going for a different sound/approach on this album?
HOT SHOWER MUZAK to me, is music that sounds like a hot shower feels.

Was there any specific gear you used to capture that?
My Native Instruments Maschine is my baby, I make pretty much all of my music using that beautiful little thing.

Is there a particular single/track that you feel captures the essence of the album?
It’d have to be ‘garlic’ for capturing the overall vibe, though swisher and ‘whipper’ are two personal favs of mine.

Is there a physical copy available? If not which digital platforms is it available on?
No physical copy, but you can get it pretty much anywhere online: Spotify, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, iTunes, a bunch of other places.

Are you working on a video/videos for any of the songs?
The whole album can be viewed on YouTube, though I wouldn’t call em ‘proper’ videos. Working on some stuff for upcoming releases though so watch this space.
