Combining the melodic nostalgia of old school synthwave with modern production chops and a variety of outside genre influences, Cassetter creates cyberpunk music that is simultaneously a throwback to the past and a cutting-edge vision of what’s next. The artist crafts every bit of his retro-futuristic soundscapes from the ground up for an unmistakable sound, and his subtly dark world invites listeners to come in and go exploring.
Cassetter released his first full-length album, The Fugitive, in 2019. The recording established him as a forward-thinking creator able to forge a unique sonic identity without cutting ties to synthwave’s roots, and the result attracted a wide audience, leading to tens of thousands of streams between Spotify and YouTube within weeks of the album’s release.
In addition to his growing fanbase, Cassetter caught the attention of independent synthwave label FiXT Neon, which signed the artist to a deal in late 2019. Kicking off with a full re-release of The Fugitive along with a collection of the creator’s early tracks, Cassetter has embarked on the next era of his career with brand new music slated for early 2020.
