Kaskade fans, prepare to be “disarmed”—the third installment in Kaskade’s Redux EP series is on its way. The arrival of Redux 003 will mark the first release in the Redux family since 2017’s seven-track Redux 002. Redux 002 invited featured artists, LöKii, Mr. Tape, and Late Night Alumni, to blend their own unique sounds into the deeper side of Kaskade’s aesthetic. The sleek, melodic mellifluousness of Redux 002’s sound further exemplified the brand’s auditory concept.

Despite the centrality of the live experience to Kaskade’s Redux vision, Redux 003 will not be accompanied by a tour. Kaskade will instead offer fans a larger than usual Redux show, in place of a multi-date Redux initiative. The “Fun” producer has yet to divulge the details of the Redux 003 event that will follow the forthcoming EP, or the formal release date of the third offering in Redux’s sonic saga.

A return to the roots not only of dance music, but of the earlier stages of Kaskade’s career, Redux is Kaskade’s effort to recreate the affective intimacy of smaller dance clubs, home to classic house sound.

AC Slater and Phlegmatic Dogs wild out for remix of Kaskade’s ‘Fun’

AC Slater and Phlegmatic Dogs wild out for remix of Kaskade’s ‘Fun’DSC 1385 Bw

Earlier this year, Kaskade tapped the BROHUG trio, Mr. Tape, and Madge for some “Fun” — a funky guitar and bouncy bell synth-led house single, crafted with a penchant for playtime. Now, AC Slater joins the Phlegmatic Dogs duo in introducing the track to a diversion of the darker variety.

While AC offers the new remix his airy, reverb-heavy melodicism in the interludes, the drops are riddled with the Dogs’ signature static-heavy bass. The remix leaves Madge’s frisky vocal cut intact, tinged with a bit of pitched-down distortion. Similarly, traces of the rest of the frolicsome original’s frill still permeate throughout the remix—though they too seem to have been dropped in the Night Bass blender.

The Phlegmatic Dogs are chronic releasers inside AC’s dusky house haven, Night Bass Records. Last year, the imprint housed their breakthrough track “Keepmastik,” which plagued house sets for months after its release with its fierce rhythmic arrangement and growling bassline.
