The week’s best new electronic music, plus a conversation with Sage Caswell about his relationship with LA and the duality of his music.
In today’s crowded electronic music landscape, many artists find success by focusing on one thing and doing it extremely well. Southern California native Sage Caswell has taken a different path, developing a sound that vacillates between peppy house rhythms and ambient introspection. Currently based in Madison, Wisconsin, and set to release his latest album, this week via 2MR, Caswell talks here about his decision to leave Los Angeles, his embrace of mellower tempos and the narrative behind his new LP, Evil Twin. Elsewhere, host Shawn Reynaldo does his usual rundown of the best new offerings from the world of electronic music, and premieres a track from Australian phenom Roza Terenzi off her upcoming EP for Dekmantel.
