Audiophile presents: KAYZO
As one of the decade’s fastest rising electronic artists, KAYZO is a pioneer of the dance/rock crossover scene, with hard-hitting songs, rebellious live performances and die-hard global fans.
After winning Insomniac’s Discovery Project in 2012, KAYZO caught fire in the scene. His rework of Papa Roach’s Last Resort broke barriers between mainstream electronic and heavy metal. He’s performed at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Tomorrowland and Lollapalooza alongside the likes of Alex Gaskarth, Knife Party and Tommy Lee.
Blazing a thriving home for rocktronic music, he launched Welcome Records in 2018. That year, his debut album, OVERLOAD, carved shows in Southeast Asia and Europe. KAYZO’s explosive 2019 sparked a 15-track sophomore album, Unleashed, featuring Of Mice & Men and Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire. His Unleashed Live tour set off with Sum 41 drummer Frank Zummo across 12 North American cities. Recent songs like Suffocate (with Bad Omens) and DOMINATION (with Papa Roach and Sullivan King) have accumulated millions of plays.
In June 2022, KAYZO is set to release his latest album, NEW BREED, showing his talents of intertwining a rock and electronic feel. With features from GHØSTKID, Siiickbrain, conner, and more he seamlessly blends the two genres bringing a feel of nostalgia all while creating something new.
From bands in the studio to flames on stage, KAYZO’s continuous growth serves as a modern interpretation of heavy metal’s parallel with dubstep’s electrifying bass.
