Castor Pollux did not “burst on to the scene” or “take an interest in music at the age of 2” or any of that garbage that a press kit usually claims. Rather, his has been a slow and steady climb from spectator to DJ to producer to underground favorite. He began his musical career in Dallas, TX mixing trance records at small clubs and after-parties. He soon discovered how to parlay his band-nerd youth into electronic music production and recorded a few original tracks to accompany his DJ mix albums. After arriving in Portland in 2008, Castor was taken in by one hour pharmacy records and released several original recordings and remixes through the label.
Since then Castor has gone rogue and increased his musical palette from purely electronic dance music to a fusion of nearly all genres, which has allowed him to play in almost any venue for any crowd. He is absolutely just as comfortable mixing rock and hip-hop for a rowdy group of juggalos as he is melting the faces off of ravers with his signature blending of trance and dubstep. In early 2012 Castor released his first EP, ‘Soundtrack to the Apocalypse’ which gained the attention of NoDat Agency who now represent him.
With castor behind the decks or viciously throwing down a live pa set, you know you’re in for one hell of a show. A master MC, a true showman, and (oddly enough) a close up magician, Castor can blow any crowds mind both musically and visually in any setting from coffee shop to summer music festival.
