Sebastian Furrer and Alexander Björklund—the Swedish production duo better known as Cazzette—form the second brainchild of super-manager Ash Pournouri, who first guided Avicii’s remarkable rise. Cazzette’s remixes for Avicii, Adele, Kanye West and Jay-Z have garnered attention for their special blends of dub-y bass and melodic house. The duo cleverly dropped a three-part streaming-only album, Eject, on Spotify—a move that fueled their hype even further. Catch the Wynn Resorts residents’ next performance July 31 at Surrender.
