Making concrete waves throughout the Berlin underground and carving a reputation internationally with their live performances, popular event nights and taste-making record label, Berlin duo, Kaiser Souzai are an unstoppable force within the industry. What began as a music collaboration, has now become much more than that with the creation of their own musical genre of Art-rock Tech, drawing influence from 70’s greats such as Pink Floyd, Genesis and Yes, yet still keeping to their roots of deep and progressive techno, electrifying dancefloors across the globe.

The duo put themselves on the electronic map initially with releases such as ‘Girl’, which became a huge summer tune in 2006 with it’s Pulp Fiction samples, and their Cloud series, ‘Altocummulus Floccus’, ‘Stratocumulus’ and ‘Cirrus’. Remixing for Booka Shade’s ‘Love Inc’ on Blaufield and Dave Seaman’s ‘Everything Comes in Threes’ on Tulipa Recordings, alongside signature releases on Kinetika, Trapez and Definitive Recordings to name only a few, not to mention support from the likes of Sven Vath, Joseph Capriati, Steve Lawler and Rick Maia plus many more, the last few years has seen Kaiser Souzai build a unique brand representing and creating that art-rock niche which has had critical reception from all over. Always regularly featuring in the electronic top 10 of various portals, the duo has further solidified their name with the creation of Ballroom Records, a label which has grown from strength to strength with a taste-making roster that puts out some of techno’s best new music alongside vibrant label nights that keep giving and giving.

And now, having worked their way up the Berlin club scene and emerged into international waters, Kaiser Souzai have introduced their live performances to the world. Each live show incorporates Kaiser Souzai’s never-ending energy, showcasing their talents as musicians with live electronic percussions in front of an eagerly awaiting crowd. 2014 & 2015 saw them travel from Belgium to Australia, Thailand to Berlin, gigging at the likes of Womb (Tokyo), Uberhaus (Beirut), Forsage (Kiev), Sullivan Room (NYC) Koi (Singapore), Jungle Experience (Koh Phangan), Circus (Melbourne) and Rhythm & Alps (New Zealand), with the end of their New Zealand tour seeing them headline the Techno Stage alongside the legendary Carl Cox. As well as gracing the stages of Earth Festival in Australia, and the Nation Of Gondwana festival in Germany – they’ve shot through the Berlin circuit of Sysyphos, Tresor, Wilde Renate, Kosmonaut, Golden Gate, CDV and Chalet to name a few, illustrating their raw passion of dark tech and loaded electronica along the way.

Kaiser Souzai grew from the dark depths of their studio, knocking out track after track until like a flicker of light, the world began to recognise what they were about. Taking the stage with their incredible live performances and productions, Kaiser Souzai are continuing to emblazone the world with their unique brand that nobody will forget.
