Soulshock & Karlin – Danish producers and songwriters duo
Soulshock & Karlin duo was formed in 1989 in Denmark. Its founders are Carsten Schack and Kenneth Karlin. The former is a record producer and DJ while the latter is a songwriter. The combination of the two talents allowed the duo to become famous all over the world.
Soulschock’s career began in 1989. He performed at a hip-hop club. Later, he got a chance to participate in the DMC Mixing contest in London. The DJ came in third. The real popularity came when Carsten was invited to work on the songs of such artists as Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah, and Chill Rob G, as part of the European Tour. A while later, Schack appeared on KIIS-FM. The artist worked for a while in New York but then came back to Denmark. In 1990, he created his own label, Soulpower Productions and Records. He was looking for a keyboard player to continue with a special music project.
Initially, Karlin was a jazz music fan. He wrote lyrics and music and played different instruments. When Soulshock offered him a chance to work together, Karlin couldn’t refuse, even though it changed the way he approached music. The musicians formed an excellent tandem.
