Chósta (pronounced Coast - ah) is the moniker of Conor Kelly. The Irish electronic producer from the seaside Dublin town of Donabate has been quietly forging his own sound over the past couple of years, beginning with club-orientated tunes before veering towards more experimental, textured grooves incorporating found sounds and inspired by his coastal surroundings. His first single Alone was released in 2020 and received support from Nialler9, who referred to it as 'an impressive debut'. He followed that up with second single Caught Adrift, a chill and meditative track which builds to a crescendo that was described by FourFour Magazine as a ‘Balearic’ and ‘soothing’ release. He then dropped the single ‘It’s You On My Mind / Rush Hour’ in January 2021. His latest release 'The Coldest Stare' came out in May 2021 and received airplay from BBC Radio 6 and 2XM, as well as attention from Nialler9, GoldenPlec and The Thin Air .
