At just 22, Finnish multi-instrumentalist KASPERG has already impressed with his releases, remixes and live show. With our keen ears firmly pricked up, we decided to get to know the genre-hopping producer and take a journey through his influences with our 29th guest mix.
KASPERG seamlessly blends hip hop, jazz and sample-heavy house over 50 minutes of meandering magic. Perfect for your next after-party, late-night bus ride or if you’re looking for a reminder of the importance of sampling across electronic music (who isn’t?), it’s all here. A slightly different angle from our usual sound, but we’re sure you’ll love it. Press play and get to know KASPERG below.
