Masterful electronic duo KAS:ST have dropped a remix package for their new album A Magic World, out 10th September on Afterlife.
A five-track release, A Magic World Remixes opens with Anyma and Kevin De Vries’ exhilarating edit of ‘Outomorrow, Mind Against join forces with emerging talent Colyn for a high-energy, synth-driven version of ‘Who’s To Say What’s Real’. Next up techno don Radio Slave delivers a remix of ‘Never Looks Away’ that’s characterised by two soul-searching breakdowns, followed by French master NTO who drops a moody, slow-burning rework of ‘Letters’. Things are then closed out by German composer Chris Avantgarde’s majestic, orchestral interpretation of ‘VTOPIA’.
Quickly becoming label regulars, A Magic World Remixes marks KAS:ST’s third release on Afterlife. Tale of Us’ lauded remix of their track ‘Hold Me To The Light’ previously went down as one of the defining dance tracks of 2019. Released last year, A Magic World showed the duo exploring a wider range of sounds, more pop-oriented but yet still extremely personal.
“With our ‘A Magic World’ album, we worked without any pressure to make club hits, it was always and only about the music,” KAS:ST explain. “We couldn’t be happier with this great remix package that gives some of our favorite tracks a whole new perspective.”
KAS:ST are a France-born, Barcelona-based duo who founded and run the Flyance Records imprint. A duo of many talents who write and produce the music, they also direct their own videos. With a sound that fluctuates between mesmerising rhythms and dark, mind-blowing emotions, the pair deliver stripped-back techno with every release as personal as possible – amassing millions of plays in the process.
