Kasbo shares Billboard remix of ‘About You’ amid ongoing North American tourKasbo About You Billboard Remi

In March of this year, Carl Garsbo released Places We Don’t Know, his debut album as Kasbo. Released via Foreign Family Collective and Counter Records, the 13-track LP acted as an impressive milestone for the burgeoning Swedish producer, further progressing the success he’d already begun to cultivate through prior releases on key imprints such as Monstercat and the aforementioned Foreign Family. Upon the album’s release, Garsbo noted that Places We Don’t Know centers conceptually around “romanticizing a naïve worldview,” because of the beauty inherent in such a perspective.

Perhaps no song off the record is more emblematic of this notion than its mellifluous, wistfully slow single, “About You,” so it’s fitting that he would choose to kick off the second leg of his Places We Don’t Know tour with the release of a re-interpretation of the piece.

Kasbo has bestowed the honor of remixing duties upon Mathieu Lépine, a Montreal native who produces under the name of Billboard. Released earlier this week, Lépine’s take on the track retains similar melodic elements of Garsbo’s original, but converts its doleful sensibilities and pace into an upbeat, future bass-infused offering which, ultimately, acts as a keen contrast.
