558 – Kaiser Souzai
Kaiser Souzai are rooted in Berlin, feeling at home on earth, gathering input from every country we travel to, most of their work is created while being on tour. Carving their very own niche of what they call Progressive Techno, they have defined the sound for many years which has its influences from House and Techno as well as the Prog Bands of the 70ties like Yes, Weather Report and Genesis.
This they bring on-stage in their Hybrid Set, jamming with electronic Percussion and playing only Kaiser Souzai material or artists that have released on our Ballroom Records imprint, delivering a unique night of a Kaiser Souzai artist performance.
Today we welcome them to the Data Transmission Podcast.
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Beautiful journey through the sound spheres of Kaiser Souzai’s music
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Venus, as it’s our latest production, part of our upcoming album “The Planets” and also the Roman goddess of love and beauty. Who doesn’t love that?
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
It contains only Kaiser Souzai tracks, originals and remixes and it’s exactly how you would hear us playing live. Only thing missing is the live percussion from our HYBRID sets.
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
We played at a cute and small one day festival in Amsterdam and it was the first time we performed our HYBRID set. We were amazed by the crowd’s reaction and so it was surprisingly awesome.
What have you got coming up?
The next Ballroom Records release is a special one. The EP is called “The Voice” and is a collaboration with Roland Clark. Also we have Patent Skillz’ “DJ Lion”, Stil Vor Talent’s “Jiggler” and Subliminal’s “Junolarc” on the remix duties. Furthermore we have a track signed to D-Formation’s imprint “Beatfreak Recordings” and as mentioned before our album “The Planets” in the making.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
