Volume 04 – mixed by Ka§par

When I spoke to Ka§par about making a feature, we weren’t quite sure when or where we first met. We agreed it must have been around 2002 and it was the 4hero forum, that brought us together. Having been a fan of his music for just that long, it was inevitable to ask him for a mix.

Ka§par is Lisbon-based Joao Pires, a longtime DJ and producer. He started putting out records in 2004 with his former partner Jackzen. Together they contributed a broken beat flavoured tune for the Transcendances compilation on the Portuguese Groovement label. Another notable record of the duo is the hard to find Transatlantic Twist EP on which they remixed Moonstarr.

As a solo artist, Ka§par does more house-oriented music, ranging from soulful to dubby sounds. Last year saw the release of the Mamilo EP on 4lux, another record on Groovement followed this year. And this was only a first teaser to his soon to be released album.
