I know a track is good when it makes me dance in my seat. Such is the case with “Caroline Street”, the latest track from London-based electronic producer KAASI. “Caroline Street” is a slow-moving deep house track with a hard-hitting groove that I can feel permeating through my bones. I love how the vocal cuts seem to slice its way through an infectiously brilliant bass line and work its way through a beautifully vibrant array of interesting electronic sounds and snaps without actually saying anything really. But it doesn’t need to. I can sense an underlying energy and some deep-seated emotion resonating behind each pulsating beat and every abrupt tempo change. Even though it’s only a feeling on a peripheral level. “Caroline Street” is one of those great tracks that is almost impossible to sit still through. And honestly, I don’t know why anyone would want to!
KAASI is an exciting artist that is quickly gaining a nice following. And with “Caroline Street” I can’t say that it’s all that surprising. I have a strong feeling the best is yet to come!
