The 19-year-old Kasbo has been quietly having one of the biggest years in music. The Swedish producer has dazzled with remixes of Jeremih and Vance Joy that made him one of the most buzzed-about artists in dance music, and he solidified his position when he dropped his stand-out debut EP, Umbrella Club, last month.
To close out the year strong, the Swedish talent has unveiled a track for ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective, an imprint that has earned the reputation for hand-picking and fostering up-and-coming electronic artists, that is arguably his best production to date.
“World Away” is instrumental electronica at its best, as a wave of lush soundscapes instantly washes over you from the first beat to the last second. Like a master at work, Kasbo creates a sound that is so purely beautiful at its core that it sends waves of nostalgia running through your body – almost like you’ve heard the shimmering synths and big drum sequences that are woven together – creating a track that is so familiar, yet unexpected.
