Kaskade Returns to Orlando with a new mix album Bring The Night: on Ultra Records!
Ultra Records,Om Records, Kaskade Music
Kaskade's explosion onto the dance music scene and subsequent rise to top-tier status is not without significance. As Tricia Romano of the Village Voice observed, "In dance music no one ever seems to graduate or ever get promoted, which means that the ability for new DJs and producers to break in the upper ranks is incredibly hard. Kaskade is one of the few who've pushed past the Sashas and the Derricks to get on the A-list." This is so clearly the case that when URB Magazine featured Kaskade on their cover alongside Kanye West's A-Trak and NYC's Tommy Sunshine as the three the most influential DJs in North America today, they explained that "Kaskade is a special breed of house star, one who has increased in popularity over the past few years in an industry where most of the major players have at least a decade (often two) of stardom behind them." That Kaskade has broken rank as well as tradition is a testament of his ability to create music that has succeeded in transcending industry politics and obstinate so-called gatekeepers.
And transcend it certainly has: consistently to the top of the charts. Kaskade's remix of the Pussycat Dolls' "Don't Cha" immediately hit Number One on Billboard Magazine's Hot Dance Music Club Play, as did his remix of David Morales' "Here I Am." His own songs have proven to be just as chart worthy: The single "Everything," a big-room remix off In The Moment made Number One on Hot Music Club Play and went as far as Number Six on Hot Dance Single Sales (another weekly Billboard chart). But it was the single "Steppin' Out" that earned Kaskade wide recognition, far beyond the dance music scene and thanks in no small part to its heavy radio play and commercial licensing, as well as being named to the annual "Top Ten Singles" list by Entertainment Weekly. From Budweiser commercials to MTV's The Real World, the rocker-styled guitar riffs of "Steppin' Out" mixed to a bass-heavy backbeat was contagious in its appeal, and burst open a wholly new and original sound to dance music.
This broad appeal that Kaskade has been able to tap into has not gone unnoticed by the music industry. The accolades and recognition are numerous and include a nomination for "The Borders Award for Best New Artist" in 2004 to being voted number 20 in the "2004 America's Favorite DJ Poll" conducted by BPM Magazine. The San Francisco based magazine, SOMA, summarizes it well: "Kaskade has taken over the scene as one of the West Coast's most sought after DJs."
All this appreciation is not to say that he takes his profession too seriously. "I'm just a guy who loves to produce music, and I'm having a really, really good time doing so. I'm not it in for the ‘scene.' I don't wear shiny sequin shirts and I don't usually hang out in clubs unless I'm going for a specific reason." With his relaxed West Coast demeanor (it's not uncommon for him to show up to a club in flip flops), and his affable personality, Kaskade is an anomaly to the stereotypes often associated with the DJ persona.
Individuality is apparent in Kaskade's personality, and so is the music he produces, which is consistently fresh and discernibly original.
