30 seconds interview: Chriz Kaz

Chriz Kaz

A half Greek Cypriot, half German brought up in London, Chris Kaz is an electronic soul artist mixing up sonic styles through a diverse filter.

Chris is an artist and film maker as well as songwriter making music that veers from electric elegance to bass heavy two step full of cracks and kinks. His debut release Track 01 is a great introduction to his talent, a twitching moment, ripples with bass and soul.

With fans such as Julie Adenuga from Beats 1 and BBC 1Xtra’s Jamz Supernova, he’s also unveiled another slice of musical goodness in the form of Save Us, produced by  Brooklyn-based producer The 83rd.

If you’re fans of the likes of Sampha or The xx, then Chris and his artistry is for you. We spend 30 seconds with him below…
