Kasia is tugging at your Heartstrings (and pulling you onto the dancefloor) with her new single and video. This month, the Vancouver electronic music artist and producer debuted latest release — an insistently pumping banger infused with bass house, pop and ethereal vocals. The first single from her upcoming debut album Bass, Heartstrings is the latest in a series of creative and commercial breakthroughs for the budding EDM artist and producer, who also incorporates healing frequencies into her music. To celebrate her new single, Kasia stepped up and went toe-to-toe with my silly questions. If that doesn’t bust her groove, nothing will:



Introduce yourself: Name, age (feel free to lie), home base and any other details you’d care to share — height / weight / identifying marks / astrology sign / your choice.
My name is Kasia and I’m in my 30s. My home base is in Vancouver, B.C. I’m 6’1, blonde – Sun sign Capricorn, Moon sign Pisces and Rising sign is Gemini.

What is your musical origin story?
My musical origin story is a journey of exploration, growth, and ultimately, finding my own unique sound. It began at a young age when I started studying classical piano around 5 or 6 years old. Despite my initial desire to sing, my mom insisted I learn piano first. Throughout elementary school, I dabbled in various pop-girl bands. However, it wasn’t until my early 20s that I crossed paths with SZAM, the producer and creator of Fan Death, a synth-pop group. I was brought on to replace the lead singer, which was my first introduction to professional recording. This experience opened up new horizons for me. Eventually, I found my niche in producing my own music, gravitating towards the house, bass house, and ethereal genres.

What’s your latest project?
I just released a new track Heartstrings and an accompanying music video for it. This is the first track for an LP that I am putting out this year.

What truly sets you apart from other artists?
I strive to create music that is not only authentic but also meaningful for others. Unlike many electronic music artists, I incorporate healing frequencies into my music and often perform with a live band.

How will my life improve by listening to your music?
I have been experimenting with infusing healing frequencies from my sound healing instruments into my electronic music. I record right into Ableton from my studio. I play at live sound healing events five days a week and always hear how much the music helps people make sense of their subconscious thoughts. My hope is that people can have similar experiences when listening to the recorded frequencies in my house music.

Tell us about the first song you wrote and / or the first gig you played.
The first song I ever wrote was when I was around 12 years old. I remember sitting at the piano, pouring my heart out about wanting to escape my small town. Looking back, I can recall the lyrics, although I have to admit they weren’t great.

What living or dead artists would you like to collaborate with?
Mac Miller, Tupac, Flume, Caroline Polachek.

What artist or style of music do you love that would surprise people?
Gangsta rap.

What words do you hope people use when they describe you?
Hard working, ambitious, creative, relentless — A producer I work with said, “You have an abnormal amount of motivation.”

What do you collect?
Tarot cards, occult books and crystal instruments.

If money was no object, where would you live?
In my own private beach house on my own private beach and/or my own island.

What would you like to be reincarnated as?
A more enlightened version of myself.

What’s your idea of perfect happiness / total misery?
Happiness is being able to live a free life, pursuing anything you wish! Being healthy and free. Misery is working for someone else, being unhealthy and having no connection to source.

What are your pet peeves?
People who lie and are unaccountable — flakiness and unreliability.

What’s your greatest regret?
I don’t really have any regrets. I think we are a product of the lessons we’ve learned and that everything happens for a reason — even if we don’t understand what the reason is — all of our experiences are helping us find our way back to ourselves.

What are you afraid of?
Sharks and deep, dark water.

What’s your motto?
Music is the answer!

What’s always in your refrigerator?
Hot sauce — all different kinds. And ginger shots.

What’s the silliest thing you believed as a child?
As a child, I distinctly remember telling my mom, “Mom, when I’m older, I’m going to marry someone with blue eyes.” Her response was simple but profound: “Just make sure they’re nice to you.” This interaction, which occurred when I was around 6 years old, made me reassess my priorities and understand the importance of kindness over superficial traits like eye color.

What was the worst job you ever had?
The worst job I ever had was serving at a bar. The owners were incredibly unprofessional and abusive towards the staff. It turned out that they had hidden cameras installed throughout the restaurant and would watch us on large screens from their home. The atmosphere was uncomfortable and creepy, and it was a relief to leave that job behind.

What’s the best and / or worst advice you were ever given?
A few years ago, a shaman I work with said to me, “You haven’t met your soul family yet, but they will find you.” She was right.
