Norwegian producer Hasta (Thomas Wesenlund Wahl on official documents) is just 19-years-old but has quickly established himself as a talent to be reckoned with. His music is rich, wide in scope and ambitious in sound. He has a warped take on hip-hop and trap which stems from taking inspiration from two very disparate genres; jazz and Norwegian black metal. Approaching his work from this compeletly different vantage point is what sets him apart.
Having overseen a string of incredible remixes, including a stunning transformation of Billie Eilish’s Ocean Eyes, Hasta is now working on new material - your first taste of it is “Urge”, featuring London-based trio Ritual and Cal.
Hasta says: “Basically, I had this old instrumental simply called ‘Demo’ just sat in my beats folder. Now at that time, the tune sounded completely different than what it does now. I figured it could be cool to have some lush vocals on it, since the tune is quite mellow and calm, and I thought RITUAL would be a perfect fit.”
