Cazzette’s North American Tour

FOUR North America tours within the first 6 months of any artist’s career is simply unheard of, if not outlandish – but for Swedish duo Alexander and Sebastian, or ‘CAZZETTE’ as the masses fondly know them, it came easy thanks to the partnership with Ash Pournouri, the man behind At Night Management and Ash Alliance! Having completed a hat trick of mammoth tours already, alongside good friend and internationally renowned global superstar Avicii, the time has come for them to embark alone…and what a way to go!


Taking in 15 high profile shows in just 7 weeks, including a debut appearance at the colossal UMF (on main stage nonetheless), the reigning kings of ‘dub-house’ are set to wow 10 separate states with what many publications have touted “the future of house music”. Their unique and catchy melodies, irresistible mix of pounding beats, luscious top-ends, crunchy electro and wobbling bass have grabbed the attention of EDM lovers and aficionados worldwide – not least in the super competitive USA. Launching a new genre in house music the duo refer to as Dub House, these guys really know how to tear things up!


Such is the buzz around these two Scandinavian prodigies that it remains quite unbelievable they’ve yet to release any original productions of their own! Their seismic shot to international superstardom has so far been realised solely off the back of some sparkling remixes for the likes of David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia and Avicii! If these remixes represent just a fraction of the duo’s capabilities, then what’s in store for the world’s audiences is guaranteed to be nothing short of immense. CAZZETTE play big and they play loud. Rest assured they will bring it on their next US tour – the biggest to date!
