Sweden’s 21-year-old Carl Garsbo, better known as Kasbo, is on an undeniably steep upward trajectory that has the momentum to carry him for many years to come. As an artist inspired by hip-hop, indie, and R&B, he has cultivated and refined his dynamic, genre-bending production style that’s rooted in musicality. Soulful, evocative, and melody-rich – Kasbo’s inimitable sound can move from bass-heavy, synth-fueled sequences to airy atmospheres, all with raw energy you can feel.
With his originals, bootlegs, and remixes, Kasbo has proven his talent by accumulating millions of plays online, and gaining co-signs from Skrillex, ODESZA, Porter Robinson, and more. He’s pioneered sonic landscapes to transcend the trends and push musical innovation with each of his endeavors. His career gained much momentum after securing a coveted release on ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective label with “World Away”, which has racked up over 4.5 million streams and was paired by supporting ODESZA on part of their North American tour.
His recent remixes have gained much traction and include refreshing versions of Big Gitantic’s “The Little Things”, The Temper Trap’s “Fall Together”, Mutemath’s “Monument”, and Fetty Wap’s hit “Trap Queen”. All signs point towards Kasbo swiftly making his way to the forefront of dance music’s next figureheads.
