EMPT Presents: Indaba Music Weekly – KAASI “Where We Started” (feat. Jessica Sophie)

There really is something special about KAASI’s sound. When you get to the root of what makes a great recording shine above a field of hundreds, it’s usually the combination of sonic quality, texture, and an emotional connection you can’t fake. Each of KAASI’s tunes has that deepness that can’t be explained in necessarily tangible terms—his productions have that singular piercing ability.

His most recent tune, “Where We Started”, which features vocals from Jessica Sophie has already garnered upwards of 26 thousand plays since being uploaded on September 1st. Consistent with his “House&B” aesthetic, it’s a phenomenal sounding foray into noise, lush synthesis and a vocal line dripping with melancholic desperation. Turn the lights down low and immerse yourself in this tune.

EMPT Presents Indaba Music Weekly: TÂCHES – “Don’t You Know”

Taches 500x500

UK Bass music has certainly grown immensely in the past decade. From the recent chain of events that begot Grime/UK Garage/Jungle to Dubstep to Post-Dubstep and Future Garage, there’s undoubtedly more energy in the London underground scene than anywhere else in the world. This week, we discovered a track lying around on our site called “Don’t You Know” by producer TÂCHES. TÂCHES deftly combines most of the aforementioned styles and also a few House and Hip-Hop curveballs. It’s not surprising he lists one of his influences as Post-Dubstep poster boys Mount Kimbie but also deeper, older musicians like Errol Garner.
