Music: Kase Avila – Soul Calibre

Kase Avila is an Australian-Fillipino DJ, producer and all round creative from Sydney, Australia. Soul Calibre is his brand new album, a hard-hitting and inspiring release with heavy beats, swirling electronic effects and beautiful melodies throughout. Upon first listen, this album stands out to me from other projects so far this year, just because I didn’t expect to be blown away by some of the production on here.

Starting with the first track, “First Flight” and its kick snares, electronic melodies and heavy groove that just hits so hard I had my stank face on. Tracks like “The Labyrinth,” “Unbreakable”and “Benevolent” feature smoother, synth-laden sounds with gorgeous melodies and hip-hop samples. The bass-heavy beats are still there, but they’re coupled by gorgeous keys and other sonic effects that add a futuristic tone and energy to the music. “Growing” sounds like a smooth R&B jam, with vocal samples that come in as well as glossy, smooth and lush synth leads. “Corolla Nights” is trap influenced with its heavy 808s, and is a colourful, glossy and catchy beat. “Feelin’ It” finishes the album off with bass-heavy production and an infectious groove.

Overall this is a terrific album. Kase Avila really impressed me with this release and I hope there’s more coming! Listen to his new project Soul Calibre below via Bandcamp and don’t forget to support! Released via Low Key Source.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. I run In Search Of Media with the aim of giving a platform to independent beatmakers, rappers and talented musicians. I also hope to make this a home for music discovery, interesting film analysis, exhibition reviews and other interesting content for all of you guys to dive in to. I hope to start a podcast and documentary-style project soon.
