WHO IS KASEY TAYLOR..?
Kasey Taylor began DJ’ing at the young age of 13 in a little roller disco in the outback of Australia, and has never really looked back since. He is one of Australia’s biggest dance exports, and is now one of the most accomplished and most recognized Dj’s on the global stage. Indeed you might expect a few results when your into your 25th year of Dj’ing, but truth be told is that experience and practice will only get you so far and at some stage it takes raw talent to turn the heads of the dance community.

As a DJ, there is very little that Kasey has not done. In the years gone past he has played at almost every big gig in Melbourne and held residencies at every major club worth noting. In particular, Kasey played an integral role in creating the magic that was the ‘Mansion’.
A venue that has gone down in clubbing history as one of the best to ever sit on the planet, with just about every international DJ you could name at the time playing guest roles there. He has played alongside the likes of Sasha and Digweed, to Hernan Cattaneo, Carl Cox, Satoshi Tomiie and almost anyone else you can think of. The list is endless. In fact John Digweed was so impressed with Kasey that he twice invited him to play at his Bedrock night in London, which sits in the music industry as one of the greatest clubbing nights and brands still in today’s world. He has also supported at all the major festivals in Australia, like the Renaissance and Global Underground festivals, Two Tribes and Summadayze festivals and has become a firm fans favourite at the Rainbow Serpent Festival in his hometown of Melbourne ever year.

For over a decade now, Kasey has had the luxury of releasing his records on his own well respected label ‘Vapour Recordings’, which he founded in 1997 and is now approaching it’s 100 release. In the 13 years since Kasey Taylor founded Vapour Recordings, the label has forged itself an enviable reputation, not only as one of Australia’s leading independent dance labels, but the worlds too. 2008 saw Kasey launch his most current label project titled ‘eVapour8’, and this new adventure is dedicated more towards Tech House and Techno. The 1st release titled ‘Shorkel’ by Miki Litvak & Ido Ophir was featured in the Beatport main top 10 chart for over 6 weeks, while the 2nd release, Avilo – Rubicon was featured on Anthony Pappa’s tripple mix CD – Moments, released in April 2008, and then Fiord’s – Get Up Jude appeared in the Techno top 10 for 2 months. eVapour8 is going a fast and strong reputation for releasing quality tunes and is already approaching it’s 25th release.

In the past, Kasey has collaborated with people like Luke Chable and Barry Jamieson (currently working as one of Sasha’s programmers). Returning to the studio some time ago after along absence, Kasey is now back in the rhythm of making music again and is on a roll. He has recently remixed the likes of – Infusion, Triangle (Fiord), Antix, Jalebee Cartel, GMJ, Avilo, Anil Chawla, Sun Control Species, Karlos Elizondo, C-Jay, Flow & Zeo and many more, along with making a load of new originals too. 2010 has also seen Kasey begin to put together his first album which will be due for release around mid 2011.You can also catch Kasey back on Proton radio hosting Vapourized, which is featured on the 4th Monday of every month.

So what is it about Kasey’s music that has won him the respect of the dance community? If you really want to know, plant your feet on the dance floor for the full duration of a Taylor set.
You can talk about programming as Kasey effortlessly and subtlety changes gears from all genres of music, sucking you into his sound scape to a point where you look up all of a sudden and realise you’ve been lost in music for hours – You can talk about his astounding mixing which is so precise that you probably won’t even know whether a track is coming or going -You can talk about the fact that Kasey will be playing records weeks before most, You can talk about the fact that Kasey doesn’t compromise his sound and still remains accessible.
