Dance music has come a long way, but so has producer Ryan Raddon, better known as Kaskade. Due to the fact that he has been around for quite some time, he has been able to not only witness but also take part in dance music’s transformation, evolution, and growth. Kaskade has built an extensive discography over the years and has embarked on a musical journey, starting before the initial release of his It’s You, It’s Me album in 2003 up to most recent releases, Atmosphere and Redux. His journey is certainly worth celebrating.
Kaskade recently took to his Tumblr page to discuss a compilation album titled I Remember that has been in the works with Ultra Records. The album was released yesterday on iTunes. The progress of his music is presented to the public in a concise album containing 19 Kaskade classics. I Remember in no way signifies the end of Ryan’s career; it’s just there to simultaneously assist in documenting and appreciating his musical highlights.
Although Raddon initially believed the idea of a “greatest hits” compilation mid-career to be kind of crazy, changing his perspective on the subject allowed for Ultra Records to resurface singles from the past. He shared on his Tumblr post, “I even dare to dream that if someone discovers this album and enjoys it, they’ll dig deeper into my catalog, and find some of the quieter moments that aren’t as obvious. Tracks that make those albums, and me as an artist - truly unique.”
