Interspersing catchy vocals and powerfully melodic beats, Kasbo continues his reign in electronic music with the second single to his forthcoming sophomore album, The Making of a Paracosm – due later this year. Following his debut track “Play Pretend” ft. Ourchives, “Show You” returns to his signature sound with nostalgic soaring soundscapes. The track is aptly titled in line with the album name as Kasbo shows us, the listener, into the makings of his paracosm.
Listen to “Show You” below:
“When I made “Show You” I wanted to make a song by building a hook out of a long vocal sample by cutting bits and pieces together and creating something different. […] I like the idea of repetition in music, especially in lyrics. Even though lyrics might say the same thing, they have different intonations or meanings depending on the music that happens beneath, which creates these lovely nuances in something as simple a phrase repeating over and over again.”– Kasbo
Since the release of his breakout EP in 2015, Kasbo has positioned himself as an unstoppable force in the international electronic music landscape. He has performed at globally recognized music festivals such as Coachella, Firefly, Life is Beautiful and more, while selling out major North American venues on his first-ever headline tour, including NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and LA’s Fonda. Last year he toured with dance music behemoths ODESZA on their run and capped 2019 with an epic set at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
