In this episode of Through The Smog, we’ve got one half of Ppalsunn – Alex Kassian taking over the airwaves with a soothing and uplifting Balearic selection to bring up the mood. Alex is a producer, DJ, and artist from Kyoto, now based in Berlin, where he splits his days equally between making music and practicing astral projection💫.
Alex has released on a number of labels 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 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 Trance.
