Kaskade to Release "The Grand" on March 24
Kaskade continues to crank out new records. After releasing his artist album "Strobelight Seduction" last year, the DJ/producer is now gearing up for the release of his new remix album, "The Grand" on March 24. The disc features a hefty assortment of original productions and remixes by Kaskade as well as Deadmau5, Misha Daniels, Jes, Steve Angello & Sebatian Ingrosso, Dirty Vegas and others.
Kaskade is one of those rare dancefloor talents who not only understands how to work the turntables, but also is a gifted songwriter, which enables him to reinvent existing tracks in a completely new way. Included on the album is excellent Mind Electric Mix of Kaskade's own "Move For Me" that you can hear here.
The San Francisco-based Kakade (aka Ryan Raddon) explains, "I wanted to capture the essence of the big room sound that I play but demonstrate that this sound can still have heart and soul. This is the kind of music I enjoy creating and love to play in clubs around the world. I tried to make the mix represent what someone would hear if they came and saw me at a show. A lot of my own songs and remixes mashed together with music that I love to spin.”

Stream Seal "Amazing" (Kaskade Remix)
San Francisco's Kaskade is without question one of my favorite DJs right now. As a talented songwriter himself, he knows how to properly mix up a house beat with emotive vocals and a hooky melody to create an organic brew that is often as much pop as it is dance music.
After remixing Justin Timberlake's "LoveStoned" (get a guilt-free MP3 here), Kaskade has done another fine job with his remix of Seal's new single "Amazing."
He infused the original with a subtle house beat and put extra emphasis on the uplifting chorus with some glowing synth effects to create a very lush new version. I saw Kaskade play this remix in Atlanta last weekend and the crowd went nuts for it. (Thanks to Jordy for the heads up.)
