If you're not familiar with Kaskade's music peep this: Returning from the yearlong It’s You, It’s Me World Tour of 2003, celebrating his monumental debut album of the same name, Kaskade comes home to his Om Records family with his newest offering to the beloved San Francisco Sessions Series, “Soundtrack to the Soul”. A lot has been written, said, and felt about this young man and his music in the past year. The worldwide media, DJ’s, radio stations and music loving public adore him. He’s been praised as “The Best Up & Coming Artist of 2003” from URB MAGAZINE and as crafting “A captivating debut” by BILLBOARD, but still unchanged, humble, and low key in flip-flops, Kaskade, better known as Ryan Raddon, has so much more love to give. The past two years have been a whirlwind of success; though Kaskade has appeared on many of Om’s coveted compilations, nothing prepared him for the widespread praise that came in the wake of his debut album “It’s You, It’s Me.” The former Lazy Dog duo Jay Hannan and Ben Watt sent their accolades after the then unreleased track blew the roof off their Sunday night London gathering. Marques Wyatt extended his appreciation as well, grabbing dibs on remixing duties for a future single. As of late, Kaskade has spent many nights commanding the decks on the international nightclubbing circuit. In addition, Roger Sanchez befriended Kaskade licensing two tracks for his newest mix “Release Yourself 2003”, and if one needed more proof of his talent, Jay Hannan has chosen Kaskade to debut his new label, Society Heights, with the “Soundtrack to the Soul” standout “In this Life”. Whether it’s the uplifting sounds, organic instrumentals, catchy vocals or the diversity of his sound, Kaskade’s music embodies life, love and happiness. “I’m an optimistic guy,” he says. “There’s a lot of love in house music and this is just what comes out.” He is equally as optimistic about the scene that has embraced him with such open arms. “Dance music is so fast moving and so forward thinking; it has morphed many times over. It will be interesting to see what the future holds.” http://www.kaskademusic.com http://www.omrecords.com http://www.neglectedrecords.com http://www.lekbrothers.com http://www.markpena.com Hope to see ya there!
