KARLK (pronounced « Karlke ») (aka Charles Perrono) is a 29 years old producer from the west of France. He started his musical career with a drum kit gifted by his parents when he had seven years old. He learned how to play guitar, piano and various instruments later in a self-educated way. Falling in love with electronic music during his teenage years, Charles started to explore it in raves during the 2000’s. He first played techno music on vinyl, then, some years later, Charles followed his desires and began creating chiller sounds known today as deep house music.
Thanks to social medias, he reached the 30 millions internet plays, which gave him the possibility to play alongside great artists such as Claptone, Ummet Ozcan, or Gamper & Dadoni. In December 2015, the multinational firm Google contacted him to use his track « What I Want » (created in collaboration with Ofenbach) on its ad « La Nuit Vous Appartient ». This track was played by Robin Schulz, Lost Frequencies, Kungs… and even playlisted by the famous astronaut Thomas Pesquet. Charles released of his first album, « Crossroads« , on May 26, 2017.
Today, Charles feels comfortable in a cross-cultural universe, mixing electronic music & world grooves. The first single of this new mood was « Persian« , out on March 22, 2018.
