Kastle Biography & News
Misspell Kastle in an Internet search, and you're likely to come up with the hit ABC series starring Nathan Fillion. Yet the king of this (musical) Kastle is Barrett Richards, a man producing bass-heavy dance music, and whose popularity is spreading like wildfire.
In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, not exactly a hotbed for DJ/producers, Kastle's twist on music is reminiscent of classic Chicago house. Still, the young man has carved his own path in the industry, having taught himself both guitar and piano around the age of 12. Two years later, he began drifting toward electronic instrumentation and ultimately became heavily involved in the Northeast rave scene.
It was March 2009 when Kastle, fresh off a move from Boston back to his hometown of Pittsburgh, began to seriously experiment by fusing hip-hop and R&B with dubstep, garage and more bass heavy music. Straight out of the gate, he was drawing attention from XLR8R, URB and Fact Magazine, and his music was being spun on BBC Radio 1.
It's not only attention to detail, but a fresh and unique sound that fans are drawn to. It's also the reason Kastle has worked with labels such as Ministry of Sound and Scion A/V, not to mention working alongside artists such as Blu Mar Ten, The Glitch Mob and Example. After all, Kastle has set his own example thanks to a tireless work ethic and looks forward to debuting an 'evolution' to his sound on a forthcoming album. Until then, check him out on the road at party stops like EDC New York, Electric Forest Music Festival and more.
