KASKADE NEW ALBUM ‘FIRE & ICE’
MAKES DEBUT AT #4 THIS WEEK ON iTUNES OVERALL ALBUM CHART

KASKADE WILL CELEBRATE ALBUM RELEASE WITH BACK-TO-BACK SOLD-OUT SHOWS AT NYC ROSELAND BALLROOM OCTOBER 28 AND 29, BEFORE PLAYING MARQUEE LAS VEGAS ON OCTOBER 31

In 2010 Kaskade’s album “Dynasty” (Ultra Music, April 27th, 2010) debuted on the iTunes Overall Album Chart at #5, this year he went one better, landing at #4 with “Fire & Ice”(Ultra Music). Coldplay’s “Mylo Xyloto” was #1, followed by Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger”, Michael Buble’s “Christmas” and then Kaskade’s “Fire & Ice”. All four records were released October 24 on iTunes. It’s an unprecedented debut from an electronic dance music artist on an independent label. “Fire & Ice” will have a physical release November 8.

“It’s incredible to see my fans accept the record like this. The ‘Fire & Ice’ concept was a first for me, it’s a personal record, and I’m thrilled that people have responded. It still seems crazy to me to see an electronic album in the Top 5, it’s such an exciting time to be working in EDM. I have to say a huge thank you to all my fans for their support.”

Kaskade (aka Ryan Raddon) has spent the last twelve months creating the double disc album in his Santa Monica studio, following on from his 2010 album ‘Dynasty’. A conceptual first in dance music, ‘Fire & Ice’ explores both sides of Kaskade’s personality, with the two discs serving as a soundtrack for a total nightout. His seventh studio album includes collaborations with Skrillex, Neon trees, Skylar Grey and Dada Life.

From his ground-breaking double residency in Las Vegas at Marquee and Encore Beach Club, to headlining the 20+ date amphitheater tour IDentity this summer, curating a legendary BBC Essential Mix, and being named America’s Best DJ by DJ Times and Pioneer, the renowned producer Kaskade has simply not stopped in 2011. With the debut of ‘Fire & Ice’ at #4 on iTunes Overall Album Chart his incredible rise to the pinnacle of dance music shows no sign of slowing down.

Kaskade will celebrate his album release with back-to-back shows at Roseland Ballroom October 28 and 29. Joining him for the two ‘Tricks Or Beats’ dates will be Alesso, Le Castle Vania, MNDR, Sleepy & Boo and on Saturday October 29 Bart B More, Theophilus London, Alvin Risk and David Waxman.

2011 has been an incredible year for producer and America’s number one DJ, Kaskade. The November 8 release of his seventh studio album, the double CD ‘Fire & Ice’, on leading dance label Ultra Music, is a perfect tail-end to the year, and an insightful prelude into what promises to be an even bigger 2012 for Kaskade.

Kaskade (aka Ryan Raddon) has spent the last twelve months creating the double disc album in his Santa Monica studio, following on from his 2010 album ‘Dynasty’ which debuted at no.5 on the iTunes Overall Album chart. A conceptual first in dance music, ‘Fire & Ice’ explores both sides of Kaskade’s personality, with the two discs serving as a soundtrack for a total nightout.

The Fire disc contains ten original songs geared firmly toward the dancefloor. From lead single ‘Eyes’, which BBC’s Pete Tong used to open his Essential Selection show, to ‘How Long’ and ‘Llove’, Kaskade’s signature anthemic lyric-driven house is displayed at its best. His collaboration with Skrillex, ‘Lick It’, serves up a growling slice of electro, but never forgets the musicality and melody that underpin Kaskade’s productions, qualities that are re-affirmed in the disc’s closing track, his collaboration with Skylar Grey, ‘Room For Happiness’.

On the second disc Ice, Kaskade chooses to remix all ten songs from Fire himself. Designed to serve as a counter-point to the first disc, Ice provides the perfect down-tempo post club experience, showcasing his musical versatility. The remixed ‘Eyes’ draws on sparse, sonic textures akin to James Blake and Nicolas Jaar. Kaskade transforms his Skrillex collaboration ‘Lick It’ into slow-burning electronica, perfect for a late night drive home. Most of all Ice serves to emphasize the emotive lyrics that underpin Kaskade’s songs, easily missed at high-tempos. Ice offers the perfect chance to observe an artist who builds his music from the words up, a rarity in contemporary dance music.

“The first thing I think about when I make music, is the melody and the lyrics,” said Kaskade. “Production styles come and go, but good songs can stand the test of time. People might know ‘Eyes’ as a big-room dance music anthem, but underneath it’s a beautiful song. The ‘Fire & Ice’ concept allowed me to present my music to people in a new way, and show that my music can work at many different tempos and styles outside a club setting.”

From his ground-breaking double residency in Las Vegas at Marquee and Encore Beach Club, to headlining the 20+ date amphitheater tour IDentity this summer, curating a legendary BBC Essential Mix, and being named America’s Best DJ by DJ Times and Pioneer, the renowned producer Kaskade has simply not stopped in 2011. With the release of ‘Fire & Ice’ his incredible rise to the pinnacle of dance music shows no sign of slowing down.

Full support for his Roseland Ballroom ‘Tricks Or Beats’ show has been announced. On October 28 KAskade will be joined by Alesso, Le Castle Vania, MNOR, Sleepy & Boo and on Saturday October 29 Theopholis London, Alvin Risk, David Waxman.
