Alex Kassian is a producer, DJ and artist from Kyoto,
now based in Berlin, where he splits his days equally
between making music and astral projection.
Alex’s sound is sophisticated and precise (he previously
worked on soundtracks for contemporary dance and
theatre); it’s also lush and organic, cinematic and
uplifting, bursting with optimism and energy, informed by
spontaneity and improvisation and specifically designed
to promote the kind of out-of-body experiences
demanded by discerning ravers across the universe.
As a solo artist, Alex has released on a number of
labels here on Earth including Paramida’s Love On The
Rocks and Alex Bradley’s Utopia Records. Together
with Hiroaki OBA, he is also one half of Opal Sunn, who
operate their own imprint Planet Sundae since 2017,
through which they self-released a number of EPs,
catching the attention of and support from dance music
luminaries such as Andrew Weatherall and DJ Sprinkles.
In 2018 they released their first EP Parallax on Nick
Höppner’s label Touch From A Distance, and in 2019 and
early 2020 took their live show on tour around Europe
and Asia, with stops everywhere from Field Maneuvers
festival to The Observatory in Saigon and Panorama
Bar in Berlin. Their second release, Laika, came out on
Touch From A Distance in 2020, shortly followed by
Alex’s first solo outing on Love On The Rocks, Oolong
