Toshi Kasai

Artist Profile:

Toshi Kasai is a legendary recording engineer and producer, best known for his work with Melvins, Big Business, Helmet, and many others.

Enlisting some of the best drummers in the world as his "source material", Toshi's Plan D is one of the most unique projects in modern music.

From his LA studio, Toshi created a complex drum-triggering system that is the catalyst for Plan D. He's spent the last several years luring drummers into his Sound of Sirens studio, and just letting them go nuts behind the kit... Meanwhile Toshi has been behind the board, capturing the signal from each drum hit, and sending that signal to a variety of analog synthesizers. What results is some of the craziest sounding prog-like instrumental music you're likely to ever hear.
