Kaskade feat. Skylar Grey
Room for Happiness
Available on iTunes now. UK impact date 7th May
“Kaskade’s signature sound is as unmistakable as it is beautiful; a combination of dewy female vocals, tough electronic underpinnings and memorable melodies.” — Billboard
Named America’s best DJ by DJ Times and Pioneer last year, Kaskade releases the 3rd single from his 7th studio album ‘Room For Happiness’. The single features the beautiful vocals of US singer songwriter Skylar Grey who also co-wrote the record.
Fire & Ice went in at No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart, No. 3 on the Independent Albums chart, and No. 17 on the Top 200 Albums chart, while the iTunes version reached No. 4 on the overall album chart. The Fire disc contains ten original songs geared firmly toward the dancefloor, while on the Ice disc, Kaskade delivers the perfect down-tempo post-club experience by remixing all ten songs. Both discs showcase the musical versatility that has characterized his work ever since he began writing his own songs.
‘Production styles come and go, but good songs can stand the test of time’ says Kaskade. ‘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’
This musicality and melody that underpin Kaskade’s productions, is re-affirmed in the disc’s closing track, his collaboration with Skylar Grey, ‘Room For Happiness’.
In 2012, Kaskade will appear at this year’s Coachella and will hit the road in June for his biggest headlining tour ever — 70-plus North American shows in just over three months. His own live show is a jaw-dropping spectacle. His belief in the transformative power of dance music to uplift thousands of people at once has had a significant effect on the U.S. scene. His ground-breaking double residency in Las Vegas at the Encore Beach Club (which had not even been built when he signed on) and Marquee has elevated the city’s status as a premiere club-going destination on par with London, Berlin, and Ibiza, is another testament to his influence.
