The songwriter/producer/DJ/phenomenon is one of electronic music's most sought-after emissaries, and one of its most beloved figures. Unaffected and laidback, KASKADE is known to show up at gigs in flip-flops, ready to warm the room - to a simmer or a boil - with his unique brand of feel-good music.
This year alone, the Chicago-born San Francisco resident remixed the works of Seal ("Amazing"), Nelly Furtado ("All Good Things"), Justin Timberlake ("Lovestoned"), and Britney Spears ("Gimme More", "Break The Ice") to the top of the Billboard dance charts. Dirty South's remix of original KASKADE track "Sorry" snagged a Grammy nomination for Best Remixed Recording. And "I Like The Way" was just added to the Motion Picture Soundtrack of upcoming blockbuster Sex And The City: The Movie, in theaters May 30.
Meanwhile, on the road, KASKADE played a staggering 140-plus club and festival dates worldwide, including Global Gathering, Field Day, and Nocturnal Wonderland. He won the title of "Best Resident DJ" at the 2008 Club World Awards, for his regular gig at music-first Chicago venue Smart Bar.
With slowing down not in the equation, KASKADE's fifth artist album Strobelite Seduction (Ultra Records) is already making noise. Debuting at #1 on iTunes' Dance Album Chart, #19 on the iTunes' Top Albums Chart and with the single "Move For Me" making it up to #5 on Beatport's Top Tracks Chart, Strobelite Seduction showcases its appeal to the casual dance music fan as well as the aficionado. Strobelite Seduction will hit stores everywhere on June 3. The album expands upon on KASKADE's trademark sound of glistening, guitar-laden melodies, mixing in elements of various styles. Check out the trance-tinged "Move for Me"; the earthy, R&B-flavored "Your Love Is Black"; or electro-house floor-shaker "Step One Two." Strobelite Seduction is a diverse selection of tracks that showcase his ease between dance floor ready bounce-lined tunes such as "I'll Never Dream," which encapsulate a summer night out perfectly, to a slowed down moment on "Borrowed Theme". Blending different genres and moods, this is KASKADE at his most adventurous.
"I was molded by the city that I grew up in: Chicago. But I have matured, and Strobelite Seduction helps showcase a lot of my other influences," says KASKADE. "The record is a justification of my weekends in big dark rooms with flashing lights and pounding sound systems. I was seduced by the strobelite."
*just had a great idea for an app. One that turns screen black with a touch then touch again in certain spot to activate. “Fake Flight Mode”
“what I turned it off, it’s off”
RT @bpcronin: @kaskade he's a stuartist .. I mean flight attendant
“the door has closed please turn off ALL electronic equipment”
A lot of runner ups but that guy was quickest on the search. Or he is truly fluent in AC (airport code).
“@_Pjay: @jaimealfaro22 @kaskade then I most definitely give up. Knowing kaskade he's going to places I can't even pronounce” me either.
RT @ryancusimano: @kaskade Singapore . Ho Chi Minh. Kaohsiung
Anyone want to take a guess at that?
