| Regal (Involve Records + Sowhul District)
Following a string of releases on his Involve imprint, as well as Figure and Enemy Records, Gabriel Cassina aka Regal is one of Techno’s most exciting talents of recent years. Since 2012 the Madrid based talent has quickly established himself as one of Techno’s most in demand artists, remixing renowned acts like Nina Kraviz, Marco Faraone, Emmanuel Top (one of his key early influences) and more, not to mention collaborations alongside Len Faki. Further bolstering his reputation as one of modern Techno’s most prevalent names, Regal’s own productions have been remixed by heavyweights such as Mark Broom, Jeroen Search and Radio Slave.
Currently based in Spain but from Italian origins, Regal’s career has taken him across Europe to Berlin, a key factor in his artist evolution and one that launched him onto the international scene with authority. Known for his ability to move between influences and sub-genres, his style is eclectic as he draws from pockets of sound across the electronic sphere, with tinges of Trance melodies and Acid undercurrents at the center of his ever-evolving sound, tailoring the perfect mix between strong rhythms and melodies that enchant the soul.
His own label Involve Records, founded back in 2012, has also become a core hub for both his solo productions and stand out collaborations with the likes of Alien Rain and Amelie Lens, whilst also welcoming artists such as Boston 168, FJAAK, Cosmin TRG, Bambounou, Z.I.P.P.O, Truncate and Fabrizio Rat to the imprint to date.
As a DJ, Regal’s dynamic and impactful style has led him to play revered sets across a host of renowned clubs and festivals such as Berghain, Fabrik Madrid, Awakenings, DGTL and Exhale, whilst he also is a core resident at KHIDI, one of the key clubs at the forefront of Tbilisi’s thriving techno scene.
His latest EP’s ‘Involve 020’ – the collaboration with Amelie Lens – and ‘Still Raving’ were two of the most applauded releases of 2018. With a list of original productions, high profile remixes, notable collaborations on the horizon and a host of dates across a number of the world’s most prestigious institutions, 2019 looks set to become Regal’s most prolific year to date as the Italo-Spanish talent continues his ascent upon the world’s global Techno scene.

Raised in a home fueled by art and music his mother put him in a music school from an early age to learn classical piano and also brought him up close to the world of Jazz and Blues to which are his main sources of influence nowadays. He always lived the artistic world very closely either through fashion with his cousin or through design and even musical composition through his mother, these were all factors that influenced him indulge in the music world by buying his first turntable to play his dad's records every time he got a chance. By the age of 14 and during the drum and bass era he had already amassed an enormous record collection and had most of his older friends playing in parties across his hometown, but only two years later he would get into mixing records firstly at home by himself and later with his best friend with whom he started his first DJ act to which they called Funkaholics.
With his dj duo Bruno and his best friend grew notorious in his home town and the cities around playing gigs every weekend and participating in a number of big events across the country until 2006 where the duo decided to end and pursuit different careers paths. By that time Bruno was already deeply influenced by the Berlin underground world although still home based. It wasn't until 2013 that through an exchange program he got the opportunity of traveling and study in Lisbon for the period of 6 months where he got in contact with the Minimal House and techno scene going every Friday to the capitals most famous club, LUX FRAGIL. There he saw most of the artists he follows today and raised his love for music to a whole new level.
By the time the 6 months were finished he was offered the option of staying and travel for a short time or to go back home. That decision made him who he is today as an artists, having traveled all over Europe attending all the major parties in the main legendary underground clubs he got in touch to a sub culture that he now considers his home.
After those long months of travel he then decided to stop in the capital of the Czech Republic that later turned into more than a year in the city.
