Since their emergence in 2017 the notorious duo have smashed dance floors across the world, picking up a huge following and gaining support from many of the scene’s most influential figureheads, including Amelie Lens and Pan-Pot and Adam Beyer.

The culmination of a friendship formed in 2004, Joyhauser represents the combined talent of Joris Cielen and Stijn Vanspauwen. Preferring to take their time, the duo cultivated and nurtured their productions over many years before presenting it to the public.

Kamp!

Kamp!

KAMP! debuted in 2009 with the “Thales One” EP, the first attempt in Poland to go against the then-popular trends in electronica. Its follow-up, “Breaking A Ghost’s Heart”, is considered a milestone in the Polish history of the genre. Not attaching themselves to labels, in 2010 members of KAMP! released a double A-side “Heats/Distance of the Modern Hearts” a bit by accident, fitting into the role of “a new hope in Polish electronica” and attracting attention from international labels. The first international Kamp! release was out in 2011 on Portuguese label Discotexas. The premiere of “Cairo” was an impulse for KAMP! to head out in new directions that led to their debut album “Kamp!”, released on the band’s own Brennnessel label. Dream-pop musings, fitting the album just as well as house tracks, earned KAMP! over 10,000 copies sold and huge demand from clubs and festivals, starting in Shanghai, through London or Prague to Los Angeles.

Summer 2014, KAMP! released an EP by New York City based Cascine, becoming this way one of a few Polish bands so much asserting their presence in the western music industry. This release opened the door to be regularly able to promote their material abroad.

Their second album “Orneta” was a surprise drop in October 2015. “Orneta”, as each and every sophomore, especially the one following a commercial success of its older brother, was being awaited and rated even before the first listen. It’s something no band can escape. “Orneta”, indeed, is a dancefloor sort of album, but also a contemplative and melancholic one. And, as we’ve seen with KAMP! so far, it blossoms into a rather energetic piece when performed live.

Kas:st live

Kas:st live

Kas:st are creating an artistic universe of hypnotic rhythms, darkened melodies and emotions, exploring a singular and cinematic vision of Techno music. The French-born founders of Flyance Records are bringing an unmistakable edge to every expression of themselves – whether on their debut album ‘Road To Nowhere’, their string of stand-out EPs, powerful live show or their label, it’s distinctively Kas:st.

In 2016 they released ‘Dysphoria I Euphoria’ on Flyance, two essential double packs which refined their sound. Since then, Kas:st’s discography has grown with diverse and consistently-acclaimed releases for Materia, Concrete Music and Afterlife.

A defining moment in the ever-evolving path was the release of ‘Road To Nowhere’ in 2018. Given the scope of a unique album format, for which they released one track per month, as well as experiments with video, the duo displayed the breadth of what Kas:st can be.

As their musical universe grows, so does their touring schedule. Both their spellbinding live sets and adventurous DJ sets have entranced many of the best clubs and festivals worldwide. They have plans to develop their live show and test the boundaries of electronic music. Audio/visual elements, song-structured productions, vocalists and beyond, Kas:st won’t stop pushing forward.
