In techno circles, Cassegrain should not need too much of an introduction. With a label résumé that includes, among others, Prologue, Infrastructure New York, Killekill, and others they have left their mark on the scene.
Alex Tsiridis and Hüseyin Evirgen, the two artists behind Cassegrain, formed the project after a chance meeting at the Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona. In the following years they collaborated remotely via e-mail, sending stems back and forth before making the move to Berlin where they currently share a studio.
In May 2016, the duo folded a former secret alias and launched it as a label with the same name, Arcing Seas. The first release was ARCS-01, an intense and varied three-tracker of warped beauty. The label has become a testament to the duo’s relentless work ethic.
Although Tsiridis and Evirgen obviously have an affinity for collaboration: the pair work alongside Tin Man, a relationship that has delivered a handful of EPs and standout live shows as well as stepping out as solo artists. Evirgen’s first record as Magna Pia was released via Counterchange, while Tsiridis released as Rhyw on Rotterdam’s Tar Hallow and Shifted’s Avian.
