Vincent Casanova

Somewhere between the sublime moods of European synth-influences and the urban abstraction of New York’s underground, lies the space occupied by Vincent Casanova’s productions and DJ sets. Keen on merging opposing forces in Dance music, Vincent welds melodic synth-textures with clean, restrained drum programming– all the while maintaining a characteristically minimal vibe. Characterizing himself as a warm-up and afterhours specialist, Vincent continually applies his focus to sustaining smooth and accessible music that both builds steadily and scatters warmth. 2014 saw the release of Sublime Subculture on Montreal’s nascent future-house stable Archipel, a foray into the hypnotic, tracky and eclectic palettes of a producer whose own musical subculture dances the fine line between the intrigue of form and the sensibility of function.
