Kasablanca completes their two-track project with “Volition,” following the release of their first single “Cronus.” Cronus/Volition is Kasablanca‘s long-awaited follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2020 debut EP Human Learning, which is now available via mau5trap.
The enigmatic duo is an amalgamation of their many influences, combining their love of analog synthesizers and rich textural soundscapes to create their own distinct style. With an enthralling live performance centered around analog synth nostalgia, Kasablanca has mesmerized crowds at Red Rocks, and live from the future for DJ Mag with their audiovisual experience.
“Volition,” drenched in Kasablanca technical grit, is a powerful follow-up to the pair’s enthralling “Cronus.” As the track’s oscillating kick propels its fervent energy, hypnotic vocal chops reverberate throughout the nearly 5-minute track. “Volition” is a rapturous club-infused display of technical prowess suited for the underground. Kasablanca’s “Cronus,” which seamlessly blends progressive and melodic techno elements, was released in November as part one of a two-track project. Traversing through tranquil breakdowns and blood-pumping build-ups, the duo stimulates the senses in “Cronus‘” overwhelming melodic abundance.
Kasablanca taps into 80’s analog synth nostalgia with their 6 track electronic masterpiece released on Armada’s Electronic Elements in November 2020, blurring the line between progressive and melodic techno with their debut “Human Learning” EP. Kasablanca’s sound is defined by their use of melodic retro textures combined with house and techno rhythmic fundamentals.
