Biography

Mick Kastenholt, also known by his stage name, Kaaze is a Swedish electronic dance music producer, DJ, and songwriter.

In his childhood years, he didn't listen to music like regular people to such divergent influences like Whitesnake and Earth, Wind & Fire, he began playing piano and drums at an early age. Upon moving to Stockholm, he was dropped out of school and retreated into his studio to adopt a hermit’s lifestyle for nearly a year and a half, producing 24/7 and sharing his musical output with no one.

What emerged was a demo that caught the attention of Kaaze’s idol Tiësto and changed everything for him in the span of a season. The two met for the first time in Stockholm two weeks later, and Kaaze accompanied the Dutch superstar to his gig at Summerburst Festival. The Swedish producer began sending daily demos to his newfound musical mentor, solidifying a melodic progressive sound that draws upon his 80s disco and glam rock roots. Following a summer full of musical exchange, Kaaze received the formal offer to sign with Tiësto’s Red Light Management group and embarked on an eye-opening tour of New York and Tiësto’s Hakkasan residency in Las Vegas.
