CASEY ANDERSON

Casey Anderson's take on house and techno is based on his deep respect for dance music's roots: Detroit techno, Soul Train funk, and cosmic German electronic music. Ignoring charts, trends and clichés, his DJ sets are playful and unpredictable, connecting dots between obscure, classic and futuristic 4/4 dance music, while unafraid to throw in a breakbeat track, 80s synthpop or a disco anthem at peak hour.

Scoring his first DJ residencies at leading underground spots Yumla and Bassment in 2009, he's since founded the party collective Humdrum where he frequently hosted and supported international guests like Deetron, Dirt Crew, Till Von Sein and Ryan Elliott. In 2013 the American-born DJ released his first tracks on Italian label Opilec Music (alongside inspirations like Derrick May and Todd Terje) before joining fellow Hong Kong DJ Frederic Neve to launch Typhoon 8 Records, where he has continued to release deep, dubby techno and house.
