The discordant, authentic, automatic union of instrumentalists Casey R Toews and Patrick di Santo.

From North America, they met while Toews was working on his master's in psychology and Disanto had begun psych rehabilitation for a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disorder). Toews initiated Disanto to integrate his talents into his rehabilitation respite, as an instrumentalist, writer, and producer revisiting past sense memory as a form of experimental treatment, helping recover from the injury. This provided an outlet for frustrations with limitations of the pervasive disability. Thus, Case Trick was formed, and they released the EP Shadowland in 2019 and LP Reliquarium in 2020 followed by the remix album behind the garden, a collage of brutal, industrial sound, layered over deep pop visuals of street art, portraiture, and the abstract. The albums and their tracks serve as an anthem for those disenfranchised [specifically Dissolve], seeking solace and direction in the deep disillusionment of the well-intentioned but poorly executed functions of societal advocacy; (civil rights, civil liberties, social services, and mental health] failing many.
