Hello March! The big kickoff month always brings excitement to the scene – a barrage of big releases, the coming of spring, and the festival circuit gets its gears in motion. To get it all started, San Diego’s CRSSD Festival strikes first this weekend, boasting an incredible lineup of some of the best in underground dance music. This bite sized festival has quickly become one of our favorites because of the carefully curated artists, both live and DJ (not to mention the beautiful crowd and southern California weather.)
Now, one look at the lineup and it goes without saying that the populace will be frothing to get front and center for big guns like Flume and Duke Dumont – but whats more important and our pleasure is letting you in on the sleepers who are not to be missed (with audio to prove it)
21-year-old Swedish producer Kasbo has been building a steady fanbase with non-stop remixes this year leading into his recent single “Call”. He’s doing a very exclusive run of 2 US dates over the New Year weekend including a stop at SnowGlobe music festival in Lake Tahoe, California and to celebrate, he’s shared his first mix ever. The 40 minute collection of tracks features some of his favorite tracks right now and a majority of his own originals and remixes including an unreleased original to finish it off!
Catch Kasbo in the US over the holidays:
SnowGlobe Music Festival – Lake Tahoe, CA | 12/29
Decadence Music Festival – Denver, CO | 12/30

Racking in millions of soundcloud plays and riding high on support from Porter Robinson and Flume – Swedish phenom Kasbo wraps up 2015 with his last original of the year “World Away”, just released on Odesza’s new imprint Foreign Family Collective. This cinematic production embodies the young artist’s sound: soulful, evocative, and melody-rich – moving from bass-heavy, synth-fueled sequences to airy atmospheres, all with raw energy that you can feel. Kasbo also joins Odesza on tour this month, with a virtually sold-out schedule across North America.

This year, Sweden’s Kasbo has kept busy with a grip of new releases, including a smash remix of Vance Joy’s “Riptide.” Now Kasbo brings us another tune, and it happens to be an original that’s been dubbed “Again.” On the track, he blends piano chords with shimmering pads and melody-rich synth leads on top of a mid-tempo groove. Listen above and pick it up on iTunes.
Swedens own Kasbo is widely known for his massive melodic productions. His remixes span a variety of different artists and styles, while consistently offering a stunning result. Today, he released a remix of Vance Joy‘s popular track “Riptide,” and it’s huge. The original lyrics offer an organic build to a cinematic climax of bass and melodically sampled vocals. The future bass vibes keep a low profile, but peek out in the cracks to add a bit of depth to the production. Download it for free below, and stay tuned for more from Kasbo.
