KAS:ST

Afterlife / Flyance Records

They released their first project on Flyance at the end of 2016, ‘Dysphoria I Euphoria’, a double EP which set the tone for their music. Since then, each track released is a journey bringing together dark and melancholic emotions without ever losing touch with the clubbing aspect of techno. A varied and always praised discography followed, with diverse releases on different renowned labels (Afterlife, Concrete Music, A.R.T.S, Materia…).

In 2019 they launched their new project Road To Nowhere spurred on as ever by their will to break codes and to think outside the box. The album synthesized the duo’s broad creative range: industrial techno, drum and bass, trap, symphonic tracks… It was a key moment in their career. Thanks to a unique and innovative format, as they released one track a month during a whole year outside of the usual channels of the techno scene, KAS:ST were able to unveil their full potential. The LP was extremely well received on streaming platforms: +20M plays across all, including the iconic Hell On Earth music video

They released a new EP on the Italian and Tale Of Us-owned label Afterlife in mid-December 2019. Hold Me To The Light, one of the flagship tracks of the EP, once again emphasized the duo’s will to renew techno codes by working this time with the London based singer Be No Rain. Tale Of Us themselves remixed the track on the same EP and it became one of the anthems of the Afterlife label during the 2019 second semester.

KAS:ST never ceased to push their music’s boundaries during that very prolific year, their tracks getting remixes, for instance, by renowned artists at the polar opposite of the techno sphere like 999999999 and Tale Of Us, as long as an unexpected collaboration with Kerri Chandler or a powerful remix of Moby’s new album

Their 2nd album A Magic World that landed in December 2020 on Afterlife showed the duo exploring a wider range of sounds, more pop oriented but yet still extremely personal to the act’s signature sounds. The intense music video of VTOPIA was written and directed by Carol and Manuel, proving KAS:ST to be in a constant research of making their art as personal and unique as possible.

"Glitch Festival continues to grow in clubbing clout, and if this year’s proceedings are anything to go by, then Malta should certainly be on the radar of underground dance music fans"
