With his original productions Kauf has achieved the near impossible feat of making dance music that is also song led and lyrically deep. The rhythms, informed mostly by slowed down disco, support simple, emotive chord progressions with a melancholic bent. Dense layering, his own echo-laden vocals, and a penchant for distorted, imperfect sounds create the dominant motif, where the words sometimes ring out as if emerging from a barely remembered dream.

His debut album ‘Regrowth’ is out later this year, so far we’ve seen 4 singles alongside equally staggering remixes from some of the electronic worlds finest talents. Each single charted on Hype Machine Most Popular with Through The Yard and A Ruin reaching the top spot and resulted in Kauf entering the Top 10 of the HypeM 2016 Zeitgeist Chart.

He self-released his first single in 2011 - "Relocate" b/w "When You're Out," which quickly found its way into the hands of Dan Whitford of Cut Copy who released the "As Much Again" EP on his own Cutters Records. Kauf have previously supported Ceu, Public Service Broadcasting, The Big Pink, Stormzy and many more and are available as a band or for DJ sets.
