DESCRIPTION

NTS mainstay Kasra V joins Firehouse Records with a sublime 6 track EP. Featuring a remix from Mike Servito and Justin Cudmore, and a collaboration with Dopplereffekt’s ​Rudolf Klorzeiger and To Nhan​.

“I’ve always admired Dopplereffekt's work, which is monumental to techno, so to have them on board for a collaboration is immense. I like to think of this EP as new millennium post proto trance/IDM.”-​ ​Kasra V

A common thread weaves through Kasra’s thoughtful ​Akasa ​EP, each track adding an extra element to the journey. ​The EP ​opens up with the collaboration with Motor City group Dopplereffekt. ​Atropa Belladonna i​s a beatless beauty that flows effortlessly into the breakbeat rhythm of ​Bloom. Akasa ​follows with its dreamy synths. On the flipside ​Otaku delves delicately into IDM territory and ​Inferno ​finishes off the EP with its techno leanings, glitchy bleeps and blips that spill into lilting synths. ​Servito and ​Cudmore provide their own take on ​Bloom, s​tripping it back and creating an intergalactic track with a deeper bassline.
Iranian-born London-based producer Kasra V has been steadily rising through the ranks. His show on London station NTS and his DJ sets showcase his broad musical taste and his ability to seamlessly blend genres- from old school beats to middle-eastern grooves to acid and trance and beyond. His productions are equally diverse, releasing on Make Love In Public Spaces and Feelings.
