We featured an early preview of Karizma‘s much anticipated A Mind of Its Own V2.0 album back in March.

Well, the promo machine keeps chugging away (and I’ll shamelessly help that effort here). R2, the label, has just released an EPK (electronic press kit) for the new record, which is slated for release on June 29. You can sample all 15 tracks via the player on their site. You can also check out the promo video below:

And here’s the sneak preview podcast they’ve done for the album. (It’s longer than the sampler I posted back in March).

On A Mind Of Its Own V2.0 The Upgrade, Karizma has raised the bar once again as he continues to find new ways to rock clubs, cars and headphones worldwide …
