Kastle has now debuted two new tracks from his forthcoming LP, which he will support with a large-scale tour, where he will introduce the world to his brand new live performance set. The first track is a collaboration with Miami-based vocalist Austin Paul, which has been on Kastle’s soundcloud for a couple months now. No album release date yet, or title, but it is confirmed to be coming in the next couple months via his own label, Symbols Recordings - for more details, check out last week’s article from Canada’s own Beatroute Magazine.
The second album cut we’ve heard, “Insatiable,” was unveiled to the world via BC-native B.Traits‘ BBC Radio1 show just yesterday, a track that features UK-based singer Ayah Marar. You can listen back to her show here for the next week, Kastle’s guest mix starts at the 1h 10m mark, and you can here the tune in question at 1h 18m – I’m really loving the drum fills in this track!
He’s also shared a non-album track as a free download last month, the K-Ci & Jojo sampling “Baby, Keep It Real” – head over to his fanpage to download the track in exchange for a Like. Kastle is also known for crafting excellent mixtapes, including his most recent throwback “Classic Garage & 2-Step Mix,” and he promises that Vol. 4 of his popular “Coffee Shop at the End of the Universe” is set to be dropped any moment.
Kastle is about to embark on a mini tour of BC, including dates this Wednesday January 30th at Lucky Bar in Victoria, Thursday January 31st at Fortune Sound Club in Vancouver, and Friday February 1st at Sapphire in Kelowna.
I’ll be opening up the Vancouver show alongside Max Ulis (check out his fresh Slowcast above), 8prn & Okibi, and we’ve got a pair of tickets up for grabs – just shoot me an email here at firstname.lastname@example.org & tell me which city Kastle calls his homebase these days. Entries will be accepted until 8pm on Wednesday January 30th, & the winner will be notified Thursday morning – good luck! Either way, don’t miss this show – ticket sales are available directly from me, online here, or at High Life Records, Red Cat Records & DIPT.
UPDATE: Kastle just uploaded his remix of Miguel’s “..All” to his soundcloud and has made it available as free download! Listen below, and click thru to download.
