    Kastle

    Dance

    Originally part of a small crop of American artists inspired by dubstep, garage, grime, jungle and other ‘nuum sounds, Kastle has transitioned through multiple aesthetic iterations since he burst into the popular consciousness 6+ years ago, fostering a thriving touring career, releasing a critically and commercially successful debut album, and heading up his own wildly successful label. Across several releases on his own label, the Los Angeles-resident has filtered hip hop and R&B through the aforementioned UK sounds, developing a sound rife with pop consciousness and a keen sense of melody, all while retaining a strong devotion to under-the-radar sounds.

    In between playing festivals like Coachella, Decibel, Lightning In A Bottle and Burning Man, it’s remarkable that Kastle has had time for any other creative pursuits, but along with his own trailblazing production work, he also functions as an A&R, mixtape curator and tastemaker DJ. The rare musician with the fan base and clout to regularly play massive festivals and, at the same time, develop a visceral connection to the young artists that are likely to take the proverbial torch in the coming years. At Symbols, avant-garde releases aren’t the exception, but the rule and the label is now made up of a deep, diverse group of producers pushing American and UK sounds forward at a blistering pace. 

    Having extensively toured Europe, the UK, Australia and North America, Kastle has the wit and wherewithal to play large stages and tiny rooms, filtering leftfield bass music into his own idiosyncratic aesthetic. You’re just as likely to become engrossed in science fiction motifs as you are sweltering low end in a Kastle set and his forthcoming work sees the artist extend into ever more abstract, moving sonic space. And with ever-expanding curiosity in the worlds of tech and science, the concepts and ideations that make up Kastle’s songs don’t end when the song ends, instead continuing to make up his figurative and literal body of work.

    Across best selling records, global tours and dozens of Symbols releases, Kastle has shown marked progression, his sound always developing around a core set of ideals. His output might not all sound the same, but a thread of never-ceasing evolution is present throughout, making Kastle one of America’s most indispensable contributions to the dance music continuum.

    Caleb Cornett was born and raised in the small town of Morehead, Kentucky. Bluegrass and psychedelic rock were key components of his early years in the South long before Daft Punk and Giorgio Moroder took over. “My dad was really into bands like Pink Floyd, Yes, and Tangerine Dream,” says Cornett.  In high school, his musical projects were modeled from the aesthetics of “more dramatic music” like Sigur Rós and Explosions in the Sky.

    Cornett’s exposure to indie acts, and eventually to house music, came from spending Friday nights watching MTV’s Subterranean. During the half-hour chunk of indie programming, he fell in love with songs like Dirty Vegas’ “Days Go By” and Prodigy’s “Breathe” and the “kick drum… high hat… snare” notably absent from classic rock and folk. With the then-nascent Napster, Cornett feverishly downloaded and digested records from the likes of Fatboy Slim and the Chemical Brothers…Caleb had found the sound.

    A decade later, a 25 year old Cornett is known to the world as Amtrac. With a few year’s worth of incredibly diverse remixes and originals under his belt, Amtrac has come into his sound at the convergence of deep house, garage, and disco. The vibe is part poolside, part lounge, part mainstage, depending on where the needle runs. If you’ve ever warmed up to house from a cautious distance – Amtrac is an opening to rediscover the genre.
