A press release explains that his latest album “is rooted in dreams and surrealism, yet grounded enough to reach listeners where they are.” The 11 tracks on Relax flirt with Latin rhythms, Brazilian pop, and straight-ahead soul, and they deal with such themes as death, drug usage, politics, and fate.
Kassin is one of the leading producers and instrumentalists in Brazilian music, and has collaborated with such artists as Marisa Monte, Bebel Gilberto, and Caetano Veloso.
