Ahead of his performance at The BPM Festival Portugal this weekend, DJ and producer Kaz James has unveiled his latest single, ‘Trip The Light’ on Nic Fanciulli’s label, Saved. Handpicked as a resident for Nic’s much-loved Pacha Ibiza party ‘We Are The Night’, Kaz has gained widespread recognition thanks to his vibrant sets and eclectic mixes.
‘Trip the Light’ uses a driving beat and rattling melodies to create a unique and original sounding track which reflects Kaz’s tastes for the percussive. A highly polished production, the record is a physical embodiment of the buzz surrounding the Australian DJ’s widely acclaimed production skills.
“It is a really groovy house track,” Kaz added. “It has these epic strings like I used on ‘Arizona’ and I tried to give it a similar sound. I was finishing the record in Ibiza, and Nic (Fanciulli) heard it. He came to me and said, “Kaz! What the hell is this, I love it… I want it!”
Holding a residency at Scorpios Mykonos for the past two years, the Australian, who has been DJ’ing since his school days, has consistently led the way in evolving the brooding sounds of the techno scene, playing alongside the likes of Seth Troxler, Jackmaster, The Martinez Brothers, Solomun, Pete Tong, and Black Coffee.
