Growing up in the distant fields of Skee, a tiny town located in the vast countryside of Denmark, being surrounded among corn fields and animals, Kasper started producing electronic music already at age 12. Inspired by his older uncles who were busy DJs and producers of dance music, he patiently he went from playing at his schoolmates’ birthday parties to become a familiar name on the Copenhagen underground scene, and he had his first track released when he was only 15 years old.
Since then he has played countless DJ sets and learned how to control dancefloors with his already massive record collection and broad taste in music. Kasper’s own productions has furthermore gained a lot of attention and Copenhagen-based label Horse on Horse were the first to release a selection of Kasper’s tracks on vinyl in 2014. Since then he has released on labels such as Unlearn and Oscillat and in 2015 he was among the few talented producers who attended Red Bull Music Academy in Paris.
Kasper has played alongside artists as different as Modeselektor, Francois K, Sotofett and many others + performed at prestigious festivals like Roskilde Festival, Strøm and Sonar Barcelona.
Kasper Marott spends his days crafting both sprawling, improvised ambient soundscapes and propulsive techno thumps. He finds a similarly sprawling space in both styles, bouncing rhythms and textures alike through his weapon of choice, a Korg Stage Echo. This stylistic breadth is informed by a musical curiosity – the Danish producer scans the radio airwaves and deep mines the Discogs archives for new tunes.
