Casual T is making big changes in the world of electronic music. In a scene filled with generic producers, Travis Drews thrives on bending genres and… just making good music. Armed with a sound that draws influences from future bass, funk, and trap music, the up-and-coming producer continues to disrupt the EDM scene by performing both DJ sets and with a live band.
Travis’ relationship with bass music began in 2012, when both of his lungs collapsed due to the air pressure from the subs at an EDM festival. Despite this injury, Travis still decided to dedicate his life to making music in the same year. The talented DJ/Producer began as a turntablist based in Austin, Texas, where he quickly became a go-to in the local Hip Hop and Electronic scene. Casual T has enjoyed success by performing at X Games 2015, Official SXSW Showcases in 2016 and 2017, and Waterloo Music Festival. The His debut EP, “Lovers?” is set to drop in 2019, which will soon be followed by its sister EP, “Fighters!”. Equipped with a Master’s in Business Administration, this young musician is poised to take over the world with his infectious sound and charisma.
