Kaskade Digs Into The Past With First Episode Of 'The Vault'

Kaskade has certainly been in a giving mood this month. First, he spoiled his fans by restarting his Free Music Monday, which consists of Kaskade delivering free music until his entire catalogue is out. Today, he surprised his fans by releasing the first episode of The Vault. On his Facebook post about the episode, Kaskade promises that the web series will feature a behind-the-scenes look at some throwback footage.

The dialogue from Kaskade at the start of the episode is eyeopening: “The crazy thing is, you know, I'm in the US making my music, and I do my thing. It's shocking for me to go in to LA and play a gig and have people know the music, or San Francisco. That's shocking. But then to fly halfway across the world, travel 30 hours here to Perth, and have a sold out show at Villa last night. It's still....here I am 10 years later, and I'm still baffled by really how interconnected we are and how music brings people together. It's amazing.

This video was filmed in Australia at the start of 2011. With how popular Kaskade is at the moment, I was taken aback from the shock he expressed in regards to his popularity in Australia. Then I remembered how much of a difference the past three years have made in his career. Since then, he has produced two Grammy-nominated albums, Fire and Ice and Atmosphere, and he was the star of a 1-on-1 Q&A session at the Grammy Museum at the start of 2013.

The Vault is a very interesting look into a superstar producer's career. We are observing through a different scope than usual—one that allows us to analyze his past and figure out how it contributed to Kaskade's present. I am looking forward to watching more of these videos. A new episode will be released every Wednesday at 10am PST/1pm EST.
