OTHER: Ryan Raddon, known as Kaskade, has been widely credited as a trailblazer of the electronic dance music (EDM) scene, in its trenches as an original recording artist and in-demand DJ for more than a decade. Named 2011’s “America’s Best DJ” by DJ Times and Pioneer DJ and “the new face of electronic dance music” by The New York Times, Kaskade has released seven studio albums, including his latest Fire & Ice released by Ultra Music, scored nine Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay Chart, created chart-topping remixes for everyone from Lady Gaga to Beyoncé, appeared at all the major summer music festivals, and has performed between 150 and 200 headlining shows a year for the last 10 years, building a name for himself as an innovator of the EDM scene as we know it today. Most recently, Kaskade completed the biggest North American tour of his career during which he marked an industry milestone as the first EDM artist to ever solo headline Los Angeles’ Staples Center and, furthermore, went on to sell out the iconic venue. The pioneer of the now popular Las Vegas DJ residencies, Kaskade currently has a monthly residency at Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub in Las Vegas.
Kaskade recently released a lyric video for his new song with Swanky Tunes (feat. Lights), “No One Knows Who We Are,” which is available to view below.
