CASISDEAD And LATER Just Dropped The Perfect Left-Field Summer Banger

The elusive masked MC returns with a distinctly lighter sound.

May 27, 2016

You can never predict what masked U.K. MC CASISDEAD is going to do next. He might tease a new project only to never release it. Other times, he'll drop pure heat out of nowhere — and that's exactly what he's done this week with "Before This." The track is a collaboration between CAS, London producer Drive Me Home, and Norwegian singer Linn Carin Dirdal (who together form the duo LATER), and it has all the low-rising heat of a lazy summer night. With its playful synths and Snapchat references, it's much lighter fare than CAS is known for, and Dirdal's hook will have you jamming along in the car, in your bedroom, and on the dancefloor. Watch the video above.
