The Chicago-born songwriter/producer/DJ/phenomenon is one of electronic music’s most sought-after emissaries, and one of its most beloved figures. Unaffected and laidback, ready to warm the room – to a simmer or a boil – with his unrivaled brand of bass-thumping uplifting music. Kaskade will play the Commodore in Vancouver for two nights in November.
With five albums, 14 singles, 30-plus remixes and 4 mix albums, Kaskade has firmly established himself as one of the biggest names in the club scene today. KASKADE has been on the festival circuit for years playing on such stages as Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, SXSW, and Electric Daisy Carnival, and his debut this year at ‘Perry’s Lounge Stage’ at Lollapalooza. Kaskade’s chart topping singles off of Strobelite Seduction “Angel On My Shoulder” “Move For Me” “Step One Two” are still in heavy rotation on dance stations worldwide. His recent collaboration with Deadmau5 “I Remember” landed on BBC Radio 1’s Top 20 and hit #16 on the Official UK Singles Chart. Now the international star is ready to take the next step; joining forces with Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell for a soon-to-be released track.
Tirelessly touring on a schedule that has him crossing continents from Australia, Asia, Europe, and North & South America, Kaskade’s highly successful tour has come from the release of his mix CD ‘The Grand’ and latest artist album ‘Stobelite Seduction’. Kaskade’s performance at this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Los Angeles was unforgettable and undoubtedly one of the most talked about sets at the legendary festival. Continuing the festival vibe Kaskade will tour alongside Empire of the Sun and Little Boots as headliner at the five-day Australian festival, PARKLIFE starting this October.
Kaskade’s packed tour schedule might make you think he had no time for studio work. Think again. When not busy remixing the Who’s Who of pop music: Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Nelly Furtado, Seal, Pussycat Dolls, he’s working on his original productions pushing out a recent string of number one songs and projects such as Stobelite Seduction and his recent chart-topping endeavor The Grand.
