If you’ve ever needed a soundtrack to your existential crisis, Kauf has made exactly that. Who hasn’t pondered the existence of God or the meaning of life while going full-throttle on the dancefloor. Kauf has achieved the nearly impossible feat of making dance music that is also song led and lyrically complex. There just aren’t that many records that can work in a DJ set and also explore emotional conflicts with your family and society at large.
The project of Ronald Kaufman, Kauf took shape after moving back to his birthplace of Los Angeles. He self-released his first single in 2011 –“Relocate” b/w “When You’re Out,” which quickly found its way into the hands of Dan Whitford of Cut Copy who released the “As Much Again” EP on his own Cutters Records.
His debut album ‘Regrowth’ is out later in the year, but before that he’ll be releasing a few more tracks alongside equally staggering remixes from some of the electronic worlds greatest underground talents. Look out for more original tracks and remixes coming soon….
