Real Name:
Kasra Mowlavi
“Kasra is a gatekeeper to what is under the surface in drum & bass. He does what he does with passion and care. He is a kindred spirit.”
Goldie, Metalheadz

Kasra founded Critical Music label, a drum and bass label based in London, that is widely regarded as being at the forefront of the modern underground scene. A pas- sionate curator and DJ he has grown the label from humble beginnings to one of the most respected imprints in the genre.

“I started Critical as a hobby, as a way to involve myself in drum and bass and a scene i love. I’m so lucky to work with such incredible artists, have them realise their creativity, and travel all over the world spreading the sound I love.”

As his DJ career continues to flourish and Critical continuing to be regarded as one of the leading and most inspiring imprints in dance music today, Kasra has gone onto to headline label stages at the revered Arcadia at Glastonbury, Boomtown festival, EDC Vegas, Let It Roll in Prague and many more. All this while using his A&R’ing skills and vision to release music from the likes of Mefjus, Enei, Ivy Lab, Halogenix, Sam Binga and more. Also as a DJ Kasra has done what only a select few people around the world have managed in their careers; being asked to mix FabricLive62, which went on to be one of the most successful Drum & Bass mix albums of the year.
Over the years the label has released music from artists across the scene, showcasing a diverse and vital roster covering all angles of the music that Kasra loves so much. Not content with a release schedule bursting with future classics and his own rigorous DJ’ing schedule continually on the up, the label boasts its own branded club nights, Critical Sound. These nights traverse the globe with the Critical family and specially selected guests bringing their own interpretation of the Critical Sound.
Even with this busy schedule Kasra has made sure to spend an increasing amount of time inside the studio resulting in his debut solo EP, “Ski Mask” in 2018 as well as the creation of Circuits – a collaborative project between himself and InsideInfo. Both projects have been hitting home with the fans and with BBC Radio 1 heavily support- ing, you can be sure of much more music to come including the release of the “Focus On The Love” EP from Kasra on Critical Music in May 2019.
