“Imparter of deep tech joy” That’s how kusai describes himself as a DJ. Never afraid to go too deep, his emotive musical selections are his own therapy.  Having grown up on his elder brother’s eclectic combination of funk music, European electronica (Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream), synth-infused 80s music (Depeche Mode, Gary Numan)… all which became infused with his own love for both hip-hop and video game music, kusai  ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influence.

He has played alongside Hungarian techno honcho and Ergothermia records boss RUIZ SIERRA, closed for exceptionally talented producer/ Composer/Violinist virtuoso PAJI, opened for Brazilian techno queen Anna and many more. He has also been a part of the esteemed line up at the day of slick with Jeremy olander, sharam
