Having been through the trenches as an original recording artist, producer and in-demand DJ for more than a decade, American juggernaut Kaskade continues to be at the forefront of the dance music scene. Breaking down barriers and shattering records, he’s created a career of unprecedented milestones for himself and the industry: the first U.S. DJ to secure a Las Vegas residency, the first solo electronic dance artist to sell-out Barclays Center, as well as the first dance artist to sell-out Navy Pier and the Staples Center during his Freaks of Nature Tour, which was deemed “the only successful national stadium tour undertaken by a solo ‘EDM’ artist” by Billboard.
The former skateboarder has been known to show up at gigs in flip-flops, but that no way indicates how seriously he takes his music.
“The first thing I think about when I make music is the melody and the lyrics. Production styles come and go, but good songs can stand the test of time.” – Kaskade
