Chósta is the moniker of Conor Kelly, an electronic artist from the seaside Dublin town of Donabate. His music draws heavily on playful sampling and driving bass-lines, citing influences as far reaching as Boards of Canada, J Dilla, Mobb Deep, Talk Talk and Planxty. Raised on a steady diet of Bowie, Thin Lizzy and Pink Floyd, his teen years were spent mostly listening to indie-rock and hip-hop. His journey to electronic music came late, starting off with more downtempo sounds from ambient and post-dubstep fields, before clubbing introduced him to more conventional dance music. His debut single Alone was released in 2020, a chill house track that works just as well in reclusive moments as it does on a dancefloor.
