Kasablanca drop their latest single ‘Rubicon’, out now on Anjunabeats.
Accomplished melodic techno duo Kasablanca first made a splash in Summer 2020 with their collaboration with Lane 8, ‘Run’. They followed that up with their debut album ‘Human Learning’, their Juno Award-nominated single with Bob Moses ‘Afterglow’, their ‘Immunity EP’ on Anjunabeats, as well as a remix of Above & Beyond’s ‘Black Room Boy’ as part of the ‘10 Years of Group Therapy’ celebrations.
Their latest EP on Anjunabeats, ‘Lucid Audio’, earned support from the likes of Massano, Oliver Heldens, Don Diablo, Armin van Buuren, Vintage Culture, James Hype and Lane 8, while racking up over 3.5M total worldwide streams to date. Stellar remixes of tracks from the EP soon followed: Korolova’s take on 'In Sequence’ and Øostil’s rework of ‘Am I Dreaming?’ were played on stages around the world and also saw support from many others including David Guetta, Cosmic Gate, Gabriel & Dresden, and more.
Kasablanca’s sound takes on a whole new dimension when you experience it live. Their adrenaline-fuelled show, akin to a mashup of Justice, Queen and Stephan Bodzin, straddles the atmosphere of a full-blown rock concert and a superclub. Replete with Prince-esque swagger and an extensive rig of analogue synthesizers on stage, they recently supported Above & Beyond at their sold-out Printworks London takeover and at The Gorge for Group Therapy Weekender.
Early this year, the duo completed their ‘Am I Dreaming?’ tour, which took them to eight sold-out venues across North America, as well as Ultra Miami, Coachella, festival appearances in Brazil and India, and a return to Red Rocks Amphitheater with Above & Beyond. Road tested and fine-tuned at many of these venues, 'Rubicon' sets the stage for a blistering end of the year with another tune chock full of retro synth melodies and hypnotic basslines.
Kasablanca are keeping their momentum high in the run up to the new year; they recently embarked on a 16 date tour including festivals, headline dates, and Anjunabeats label shows. Tickets on sale now (kasablanca.ffm.to/crossingtherubicontour).
