The French producer and former M83 band member has dropped an enthralling 7-track EP on his newly formed Stemina Recordings imprint.
Launching his own Stemina Recordings in 2022, Kasztan has since delivered a series of euphoric originals and collaborations for the indie dance community, as well as endorsing some of France’s most exciting rising stars. Championing sensibilities from his post-rock and alt-pop roots, stage musician turned electronic music producer Kasztan is on track to enter the upper echelons of dance music with his anthemic strain of underground music.
Championing a wholly authentic sound profile that’s as warmly familiar as it is progressive, the French native is building a back-catalog of quality cuts that have proven equally worthy for both the club and at-home listening spaces.
Having teased the release of his debut extended player for the imprint with the unveiling of its lead singles ‘Water Soldier,’ ‘Monolift’ and ‘Aqua Drama,’ the burgeoning talent now presents the full, seven-track Air Mass EP – out now across all streaming platforms.
“Air Mass is without a doubt my most accomplished and committed work to date. I’m still a bit of a newcomer to electronic music and my main objective was to work on a longer format to stabilise my sound without limiting myself to a single genre,” said Kasztan on his debut EP on Stemina Recordings.
The stunning collection of records opens with ‘My Mistake,’ an unequivocally cool slice of techno-tinged break-beat. It is followed by ‘Water Soldier,’ which serves as one of the stand-out cuts on the record and welcomes esteemed neo-soul vocalist Dahlie. ‘Monolift’ is more ethereal and joyous in nature, presenting blissful vocal phrases, twinkling synth-work and delicate percussion; and the tune’s serene spirit is carried into tracks like ‘Drinking To World Peace’ and ‘Aqua Drama.’
Closing out this impeccable mosaic of tracks, we’re treated to ‘Away From Keyboard;’ a haunting cinematic piece that provides a definitive conclusion to the ‘Air Mass’ journey.
