1. Hello, Kasia! It’s a pleasure to have you here with us! How are you? What have you been doing lately?

“I am absolutely thrilled with how well things have been going. The past few weeks have been incredibly productive for me in the studio as I focused on creating music. My main objective was to complete a few projects before the summer since I will be relocating to Ibiza for the entire season and embarking on an extensive tour across Europe.

My intention is to delight and surprise my audience with a selection of vibrant and innovative tracks. I am truly excited about the opportunity to share these fresh tunes with them.”

2. Do you remember your first live performance? Where was it and how did it go?

“Absolutely, I vividly recollect my inaugural live performance, which took place approximately 5 to 6 years ago in Los Angeles, where I was based at the time. It was a grand affair hosted in the illustrious Hollywood Hills. As I stepped onto the stage, a mix of nervous anticipation and excitement permeated the atmosphere. Fortunately, I was fortunate enough to have the unwavering support of my friends, and even the esteemed musician Seal, who had been graciously guiding me in music production, graced the event with his presence.

This unwavering support bolstered my confidence, and the performance went remarkably well. It was an unforgettable moment, a perfect blend of memorable circumstances and successful execution that greatly influenced my artistic journey.”

3. “Universal Nation” is out now, can you tell us what inspired you to produce this track?

Creating ‘Universal Nation’ was a truly inspiring journey, especially since it pays homage to the classic track of the same name by the esteemed artist, Push. This track holds a special place in my heart, as I poured a great deal of emotions and an extensive amount of time into its production. I aimed to go beyond the confines of the harder sounds of melodic techno and wanted ‘Universal Nation’ to evoke genuine emotions.

To achieve this, I incorporated a captivating vocal that tells a beautiful story about love. The combination of uplifting beats and heartfelt storytelling allows the track to find its place in the underground club scene while also resonating with those who enjoy music in the comfort of their homes. My intention was to create a piece that not only energizes dancefloors but also touches the hearts of listeners, providing them with a transcendent experience, regardless of their physical location.”

4. Does the song have any specific musical or sonic influences?

“Yes, ‘Universal Nation’ is a product of various musical and sonic influences that emerged from within me during the creative process. Drawing from my deep appreciation for melodic techno and progressive sounds, I explored different textures and atmospheres to shape the track’s unique sonic landscape.

While rooted in melodic techno, I also infused elements inspired by the emotional resonance of trance music, paying tribute to Push’s iconic track ‘Universal Nation.’ This fusion allows ‘Universal Nation’ to capture my individuality as an artist, presenting a harmonious blend of captivating melodies, intricate rhythms, and a euphoric spirit. It’s a reflection of my personal expression and artistic vision, inviting listeners to embark on a journey of emotions and connection.”

5. How would you describe “Universal Nation” to someone who hasn’t heard it yet?

“‘Universal Nation’ is a mesmerizing melodic techno track that takes you on a captivating journey. With its beautiful vocals that will make you want to sing along, the track combines moments of reflection during the breakdown with an uplifting and euphoric harder drop. It seamlessly blends intricate melodies, pulsating rhythms, and a touch of euphoria, creating an immersive musical experience that leaves a lasting impact. Prepare to be transported into a world where you can’t help but move to the infectious energy and find yourself caught up in its enchanting atmosphere.”

6. Whose opinion do you trust the most when producing music?

“When it comes to producing music, I value the opinions of a select group of trusted individuals. I often share my production ideas with a few friends from the industry and consult with my management team to gather their valuable feedback. However, I’ve learned through my own experiences that the most important opinion I need to trust is my own.

I believe in being true to myself and listening to my gut feeling about each production. Ultimately, the music I create is a reflection of my personal journey and the story I want to convey to the audience. It’s vital that it represents me authentically. While external input is valuable, I place a significant emphasis on maintaining artistic integrity and ensuring that my music truly represents who I am as an artist.”

7. Would you like to experiment with new genres in the future?

“Absolutely! I firmly believe in the importance of growth and evolution as an artist. While I am currently deeply enamored with melodic techno, I don’t want to confine myself to a single genre. Just as we grow and change throughout our lives, so too can our musical direction evolve. If there comes a moment when I feel a personal transformation, it is likely that my music will take a different approach as well. I am open to experimenting with new genres and exploring different sonic landscapes in the future. It’s an exciting prospect that allows for artistic exploration and keeps the creative journey fresh and dynamic.”

8. What’s coming next for Kasia?

“Thank you for asking! Currently, I’ve recently made the exciting move from Miami to Ibiza. I’ll be spending the next few months here, immersing myself in the vibrant music scene and allowing the island to inspire new musical influences. I’m thrilled to have a few more releases lined up for this year, and I can’t wait to share them with you all. On a personal level, I’ve been dedicating myself even more to music. I’ve reignited my passion for playing drums, embarked on piano and singing classes, and actively seek ways to delve deeper into myself as an artist. It’s an exciting journey of self-discovery and creative expression that I’m fully embracing.”

9. Can you tell us more about your upcoming show at UNTOLD, one of the world’s best festivals?

“I am beyond excited to return to UNTOLD, one of the world’s best festivals. My experience playing on the Time stage last year was incredible—the production was top-notch, and everyone involved was incredibly kind and friendly. This year, I am thrilled to join an amazing lineup and perform on the Galaxy stage alongside some of my favorite DJs.

I will be showcasing a blend of my own productions, including a lot of new music that I can’t wait to share, combined with energetic techno sounds. The best part is that my set will be broadcasted live and saved on the festival’s YouTube channel, so even if you can’t be there in person, you can still enjoy the experience afterward. Get ready for an unforgettable performance!”

10. What piece of advice would you give to a DJ that’s starting to perform live?

“My advice to any aspiring DJ starting to perform live would be to never give up. If music is what truly brings you happiness, stay committed to your vision and keep pushing forward. Avoid the temptation to copy others and instead focus on cultivating your own unique style. Embrace your creativity and strive to create a sound that is distinctly yours.

Additionally, I highly recommend starting to work on music production if you haven’t already. Developing your production skills will not only enhance your DJ sets but also open up opportunities for self-expression and creative exploration. Remember, perseverance and authenticity are key ingredients on the path to success in the music industry.”
