Karim Has “Good Food” and Good Vibes For Everyone

by The Alchemist

Karim is an artist that currently lives in New York City, but has lived all around the world. He descended from the Mandingo tribe in West Africa and actually grew up in North-West DC. Since then he has gained a huge following from uploading Facebook videos of himself singing, which lead to him being chosen to tour the world with Nigerian pop star Korede Bello. While on tour, a talent scout chose Karim to compete in the X Factor USA singing competition, where he received a unanimous “yes” from judges Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, and Kelly Rowland. After the competition, Karim moved to Los Angeles, CA where he transitioned into the realm of acting, quickly securing a recurring role in Sony Entertainment’s episodic TV show ‘Startup.

 

His newest track is called, “Good Food” and it’s got a very unique vibe to it. The song’s production has a very upbringing feel to it, that is complemented by his unforgettable vocals.  His voice really takes the track to a next level, as it brings the listener to a place of pleasure and relaxation. Check out the track below.

GLOSSER Releases Deluxe Edition of Debut Record, DOWNER

Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.

The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
