Kaskade‘s been an official remixer on many a tune, but his latest credit might be one of his biggest to date. He was selected to re-work Jennifer Lopez’ latest single, “Medicine,” and in turn has delivered a crossover tune capable of ripping up any dancefloor. Appropriate to the season, Kaskade works J-Lo’s vocals into a lighthearted 4/4 foundation set at a lower-than-average tempo. Long, soft synth notes feel like a sonic breeze, while clever sound effects sprinkled in the background add intrigue.

It seems that Kaskade has developed an interest in diving deeper into the pop space. The icon recently collaborated with Meghan Trainor for “With You.”

America’s wholesome DJ extraordinaire and ever-iridescent life force in the flourishing US house music arena, Kaskade, has rendezvoused with one of the most fiercely sought-after pop voices of the moment, Meghan Trainor. Their dance pop lovechild, “With You,” is liable to be a resounding go-to in both summer festival sets and personal playlists abound.

The “Atmosphere” artist is known for his prismatic four-on-the-floor style, an already-accessible sound as far as dance music goes. But Kaskade kicks his digestibility up a notch on his latest offering, “With You,” with the help of Trainor’s commanding set of dance-friendly pipes. The track’s ricocheting synth line and fluttering, pitched-up vocal chops ensconce the track like celebratory glitter. “With You” gets the ubiquitous go-ahead across dance floors, pool fronts, and car radios alike.

Cheat Codes’ ‘I Feel Ya’ music video is a sultry technicolor affair [Watch]

While nothing in life may be certain, odds are the production in question will emanate some serious mainstream appeal if it bears the Cheat Codes  stamp. The electronic trio, comprised of KEVI, Trevor Dahl, and Matthew Russell, have shown their fingers to be planted ever so firmly–and ever so consistently–on the pulse of dynamic dance sound in their series of standalone singles, all of which collaboratively underscore the group’s sonic versatility. While Cheat Codes’ Afrojack feature, “Ferrari,” took the triple-threat entity into trap territory, the Demi Lovato-assisted “No Promises” flaunted Cheat Codes’ acute ear for a smoothly constructed pop-electronic hybrid well suited for radio play.

Cheat Codes turned the tables again on their listeners when they went house alongside Kaskade on “Be The One.” The collaboration was further evidence of Cheat Codes’ ability to work in and across a range of musical styles. Not long thereafter, Cheat Codes forayed further into the house subgenre on “I Feel Ya.” Featuring Ina Wroldsen, the single stepped away from the momentous mounts and descents that have come to be hallmarks of a Cheat Codes, as audible on “Be The One.” The Wroldsen vocalized cut slipped into a smoother, sultrier brand of house as it contrasted the polish of Wroldsen’s voice with deep pops of bass.

Now, Cheat Codes complement the track with an accompanying visual that plays with framing and color to create a distinctive sense of visual flair. The music video cuts from shots of Wroldsen to the members of Cheat Codes themselves, as all parties dance in a carefree fashion that fits the attitude of the tune.

Kaskade teases new single ‘With You’ featuring Meghan TrainorKaskade

Kaskade has teamed up with an unlikely suspect for a new single coming out this Friday, June 14. Meghan Trainor is of course “All About that Bass,” but her collaboration with the EDM giant marks her first steps into the sphere of dance music.

Coming out just in time for summer, the tease if it can be called that comes from Kaskade’s socials with nothing but a soundless gif-esque visual. It’s hard to know what to expect for the upcoming release, as Trainor is firmly rooted in pop and Kaskade rarely crosses into that arena. However, both acts have a knack for producing fun and energetic singles that remain on repeat all summer long. The full release of the anticipated track, “With You,” comes out June 14.

Kaskade and Gorgon City prove a collaborative wonder on new single, ‘Go Slow’

Kaskade and Gorgon City prove a collaborative wonder on new single, ‘Go Slow’1

Kaskade and Gorgon City give listeners a bassline to lust after on “Go Slow.” The collaboration seamlessly melds the mellifluous style characteristic of Kaskade’s prior house releases with Gorgon City’s equally well-established underground aesthetic, to result in a bassline-driven house production that reverberates from speakers with an unmistakable sense of sonic power. Kaskade and Gorgon City play with the texture of sound in “Go Slow.” The collaborators source the track’s vocals from featured singer, Roméo, whose buttery vocals provide a point of contrast to the tinny grit of the song’s defining bass elements.

The melody of “Go Slow” is an invitation to listeners: transcend wallflower status, and head instead to the dance floor. Trusted entities when it comes to the composition of melodies that galvanize listeners to move, Kaskade and Gorgon City jointly assert their statuses as house music mavens on “Go Slow.” Each release has a musical story of its own right, and “Go Slow” is no outlier. The single follows a Twitter user’s tweet suggesting that Kaskade and Gorgon City produce a track. The rest, as they say, is history.

Kaskade‘s Redux compilation family is now a trilogy, thanks to the long-awaited arrival of the third installment in the EP series, Redux 003. Redux 003 represents Kaskade’s fullest release under the Redux umbrella: Whereas Redux 002 and its predecessor touted seven and five songs respectively, Redux 003 features 18 cuts, rendering the EP no short sonic jaunt. Kaskade’s familiar cast of collaborators, LöKii, Late Night Alumni, and Mr. Tape reappear on the EP, alongside fellow artistic assistants, Madge, Sego, Rose Adam, Sara Diamond, and more.

Redux 003 pairs prior Kaskade releases “On Your Mind,” “Tight,” “Fun,” and recent Gorgon City joint project, “Go Slow,” with a slew of never-before-heard inclusions. Kaskade exudes creativity on a rework of Suzanne Vega and DNA’s 1987 classic, “Tom’s Diner,” re-branded on Redux 003 as “The Diner.” Another EP highlight rests in Kaskade’s Sun Soaked Mix of “I Feel You.”

Kaskade has proven himself adept at seamlessly navigating sub-genres with ease, and Redux 003 is no exception. The production traverses deep house, tech house, pop, the emotive, electronic ballads signature to Kaskade’s style, and club-friendly bass showings. Redux 003 is evident of what Kaskade listeners have long known: The producer is one of the most dynamic dance entities currently active in the scene.
