A UK native and LA transplant, Kazell first arrived on US shores in 1991. Since then he has switched coasts and transitioned from "the hottest DJ in warm-up," (Los Angeles Times), to a label owner and peak hour headliner in demand worldwide.
Upon his arrival on the East Coast Kazell immediately made an impact in the US club scene. People eagerly embraced his sound, an electric and refreshing fusion of dub, tribal, and breaks layered over a techno-house base. In his home base of Atlanta, he quickly became a favorite resident at the city’s pre-eminent electronic night Liquid Groove, now known as Liquified.
After a few years of playing up and down the East Coast, Kazell relocated to Los Angeles. Within months of heading west Kazell had secured residencies at the largest clubs and parties on the West Coast, including Spundae - L.A., Giant, and Avalon. Shortly thereafter Liquified followed suit moving its headquarters to Los Angeles. Kazell was immediately re-enlisted as its resident DJ for all events, including the now legendary Sasha & Digweed Liquified parties at the Mayan Theater. In fact, Kazell soon became the only LA based DJ that heavy-hitters like Sander Kleinenberg, Deep Dish, and John Digweed would request to play alongside while in the city.
In 2008 Kazell was reunited with Sasha and John Digweed, when they asked him to join him on their groundbreaking Spring Club Tour 2008, the most ambitious electronic music event America had witnessed since the pioneering Delta Heavy tour. Kazell played 18 dates with the duo, taking him across America and into Mexico and Canada.
In addition to his work as a DJ Kazell has amassed a solid body of work in the studio. His critically acclaimed 2003 debut release Driven, was voted "best compilation of the year" by Jive Magazine. His tracks have also appeared on top labels including Global Underground and Lost Language and been featured on compilations from icons like Sander Kleinenberg and Nick Warren.
Kazell has recently branched out into sound design. In 2007 he was enlisted by the legendary film composer Harry Gregson Williams to add his own unique twist to the sound of the Disney blockbuster "Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," due out Summer 2008.
Currently Kazell continues to host his bi-monthly label residency, Influx-Audio, at LA’s premier electronic venue, Avalon Hollywood. He has also been busy in the studio putting together a new band project which he hopes to tour early 2009.
