Karol Mozgawa, known as DEAS, is one of the most expressive artists of the Polish electronic music scene in recent years.
Born in Greece, living in Krakow, DEAS grew up in a house where music played no important role. As a teenager he spontaneously came into contact with trip hop music and such bands as Portishead and Massive Attack. Exploring music he meets the work of electronic music producers – Dubfire, Plastikman, Lutzenkirchen, Sebastien Leger and later Robert Hood, Kevin Saunderson and Anthony Rother, who change forever his perception of reality. A young man, fascinated by music, develops interest in club culture and djing. Soon he started playing in clubs as well as exploring the nature of music – what is sound, how it is produced. While analyzing recordings, he learned about music production and began to develop also in this direction.
As an artist, DEAS is never a subject to stereotypes and cliches. He’s not afraid to think different, as the purpose of his work is continuous development. Walking down his career path he recorded in such prestigious labels as Kevin Saunderson’s KMS Records, British BUSH Records (that also released Joey Beltram, Felix DaHauscat, Dave Clarke), Baroque Rec., Deeperfect, Monique Musique, or Proton.
He played in clubs all over Poland, German, Italy, Czech Republic, Georgia & Great Britain. He performed at the most important Polish events: Instytut, Audioriver, Electrocity, Mayday Poland, Silesia In Love.
Apart from working on his own tracks, which were remixed by such artists as Pig & Dan, Harvey McKay, and Martin Eyerer, he also remixes other artists – including Carl Cox or Inner City.
In 2016 he released his first album - Community LP for Bush Records that collected positive reviews from many artists (Paul Ritch, Pierre Deutschmann, Drumcomplex, Len Faki and many others).
For his achievements he was appreciated in one of the best rankings of Polish electronic scene - Munoludy 2016, where he was in the forefront as a producer and the author of a podcast year.
Owner of the Secret Room Studio, where he creates his own recordings, and mixes his and other artists’ music.
Since 2012 resident of Prozak 2.0 club in Krakow and the regular guest of Smolna club from Warsaw, Poland.
