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.

Best Albums Of 2018…So Far

It brings me an ample amount of joy to make the following statement; 2018 is the best year dance music has had in a long time. Since the EDM bubble blew up in the late 2000s and the commercial and mainstream takeover we’ve seen in the 2010s, there has been a noticeable decline in the

Kasbo Takes Brooklyn to ‘The Places We Don’t Know’

This post was originally published on this site

The aesthetically pleasing visuals behind him may have set a serene scene for Brooklyn’s famed Knitting Factory on Thursday, April 19, but beyond that, Kasbo truly seized the city’s soundscape. Throughout most of human history, we were wanderers, a nomadic race simply not meant to settle. In recent time, however, mankind has taken on a

Shallou’s ‘Souls’ EP is a must listen that renders the producer one to watch [Stream]

This post was originally published on this site

Downtempo, dreamlike tones and Shallou’s gossamer vocals epitomize harmonious sound on Souls, the seven-track EP that the indie electronic artist previewed with the release of singles “Find,”—featuring Kasbo and Cody Lovaas — and “Vignette,” that led up to its release.

At once emotive and affective, the production sources its poignancy from its ambient melodies, rich synth work, and soulful vocals, elements that collaboratively make for an easy listening experience, while further underscoring Shallou as a producer who will continue to be one to watch with each successive release. Duly refreshing and possessive of a confessional serenity that is distinctly and stylistically Shallou, Souls is an immersive and intimate production that further invites listeners into Shallou’s sonic sphere.

‘Places We Don’t Know’ is an ethereal introduction to the scope of Kasbo’s sound [Album Review]

This post was originally published on this site


Released via Foreign Family Collective/Counter Records, Kasbo’s debut album Places We Don’t Know is a sonic bildungsroman.

“Conceptually the album is about romanticizing a naïve worldview,” the Swedish producer said of the LP. “That [naiveté] and ignorance is something to be cherished. There’s something really beautiful about the perfect worldview you have as a kid, that the world is harmless, beautiful, and good. The more you learn and experience though, the more you realize everything isn’t perfect. So the less you know, the more beautiful it is, it’s the things we haven’t done, the places we don’t know, that have this unquestionable beauty. It’s this world I’m trying to mirror with my album, the one that stays in your imagination.”

Kasbo’s aspiration to first capture, and then encapsulate a whimsical, puerile innocence of mind and disposition via sound is conceptually regressive in its harkening back to a simpler perspective, untainted by worldly awareness. The wide-eyed, evergreen youth of Places We Don’t Know blinks back at listeners through “Stay With Me” and “Bleed It Out.” “They talk, but I keep dreamin’/And I don’t get what to resist,” vocalist Nea sings on “Bleed It Out.”

Places We Don’t Know denotes duly a clear vision of construction, and an irony: the debut album that embraces the innocuous bliss of the unknown and the inexperienced, is itself emblematic of Kasbo’s own progression. The nostalgic release seeks repose in a state of childlike naiveté while surging forth as an emblem of Kasbo’s growth and experiences. In the trajectory classic of a bildungsroman, Kasbo comes of age as an artist through the release of Places We Don’t Know. 

“Musically I knew I wanted to do a sonic representation of the concept, blending worldly sounds with small bedroom type samples and soundscapes,” Kasbo stated of the album’s constructional basis. “I really loved the idea of those two polarizing things being the two main factors that would lay the ground for the album.”

Kasbo’s predilection for lush soundscapes that mellifluously and unhurriedly develop in tandem with a serene vocal part figures in “About You” and “Bara Du,” among other track listings.

Places We Don’t Know gained momentum through the release of the album’s first single, the Tender assisted “Aldrig Mer.” Future bass found its own place on the tracklist via the second single,  “Your Tempo.” “Find” and “Over You,” the final singles that offered a sample of the sound of Places We Don’t Know prompted the it  to gain further traction prior to its March 23 arrival.

A release unfettered by the consciousness that comes with age, Places We Don’t Know is a heart-strirring, vernal gaze backwards in time.

Kasbo releases last single leading up to his debut album, ‘Over You’

A downtempo dreamscape, and the latest single to be surprise released by Swedish producer Kasbo, “Over You” arrives as “one last sneak peek” of what remains to come on Kasbo’s debut studio album, Places We Don’t Know, due out on March 23.

Wondrous in the intricacy of its construction, “Over You” layers the inimitable rasp of Frida Sundemo‘s vocal over a collection of background chords that capture bliss in their light toned and slow paced build. “Over You” gently ebbs and flows, optimistically glimmering in its gradual rises and falls, arriving as a production that is well deserving of the designation “ethereal.”

Kasbo, Shallou, and Cody Lovaas effect midtempo bliss on new single, ‘Find’

Kasbo convenes with house producer Shallou and singer-songwriter, Cody Lovaas on “Find,” an ambient, fluid production in which listeners can luxuriate. The track’s midtempo, chill pop packaging sets ethereal melodic waves into motion, the single’s melody temperately ebbing and flowing in a manner that is the epitome of sonic tranquility.

The production is a seamless amalgamation of Kasbo’s evocative, euphonic approach, and Shallou’s equally mellifluous style. Lovaas’ vocals sit serenely suspended over “Find’s” silk background beat, making for a polished final product that sources its success from it equanimity.

Kasbo unveils another soaring future bass ballad from his forthcoming LP, ‘Places We Don’t Know’

This post was originally published on this site


At only 22 years of age, Carl Garsbo is becoming one of Sweden’s most inimitable forces in the indietronica scene. Known to fans as Kasbo, he caught the early admiration of influential tastemakers ODESZA for his commitment to sweeping sound designs that are as organic as they are meticulously crafted.

After announcing his debut album last month, Kasbo returns to the gambit with a stunning new single, entitled “Your Tempo,” that he says helped him define what he wanted his forthcoming LP to be:

“‘Your Tempo’ is about expressing to the person you love there’s no need to stress. You have so much time to explore life and to explore each other, but the person is unable to enjoy the beauty of that since their mind is always at the next step.”

The track taps into Garsbo’s brand of soulful and evocative electronic music, featuring future bass elements that are as deep and organic as it’s soaring lyrics. “Your Tempo” is a refreshing ballad that stands out in an ever-increasing banal genre of dance music.

If the track is any indication of what is to come, one thing is certain: Kasbo’s first full-length album will be wildly intuitive and wise beyond its years. In support of his debut album, out March 23rd, Kasbo is also embarking on his first headlining North American tour this March, with the final stop appearances at both weekends of Electric Forest in late June.
