Kaskade delivers sultry new number, ‘My Light’ on ‘Arkade Destinations Iceland’Kaskade

Diving into the atmospheric sonics of frostbitten temperatures, Kaskade‘s newest single “My Light” arrives with gratifying timing. Featuring a collaborative effort with Grammy-nominated producer Lipless, the track first appeared on Arkade Destinations Iceland upon its release in early October. The latest Destinations release follows as the second edition of Kaskade’s installment of the location-based compilation series—with the first centered on Tulum. Each Destinations album has reflected the Arkade founder’s externalization of “traveling the world and becoming emotionally attached to different locations” and subsequently build upon that experience.

“My Light” sees Kaskade and Lipless join forces on house sensuality, characterized by wispy female vocals, cascading synth plucks, and deep percussions. With expert chopping and layering maneuvers, the track delivers four-on-the-floor energy that maintains subtleness while simultaneously teeming with seductive qualities. Replete with minor tones, but euphoria-inducing, “My Light” might be Kaskade’s sexist club number of 2019.

Lipless turns in rooftop-ready deep house cut with ‘Stranger’Lipless Stranger Patrick Baker

Lipless is back for an end of summer stunner called “Stranger” on Thrive, featuring gorgeous vocals courtesy of recent Lane 8 collaborator Patrick Baker. The new original is just the latest delivery in a handful of tracks the Los Angeles-based producer has released in 2018, having last stepped out with a remix for The Driver Era‘s indie pop anthem “Preacher Man.” After catching ears with remixes for Kaskade and multiple releases Arkade, Lipless has been poised for takeover.  But while quantity has been scarce from the deep house artist lately, his quality is as consistent as ever.

“Stranger” sets the mood immediately with raw piano chords and twinkling marimba. Baker’s voice emerges drenched in reverb, and leads into a silky beat topped with echoing strings. The track is wistful but never gloomy, with a glittering melody that’s as catchy as it is emotive. The mood is primed for the waning days of summer, as fans hope this latest single is a sign of more to come from the deep house producer.
