Kaskade has become the face of dance music in America for his upstanding demeanor and willingness to speak on issues that challenge dance music. He often shares his thoughts about the current state of the scene and other announcements to his fans through his Tumblr. Without question, EDM would not be where it is now without the influence of Kaskade. In an announcement on his tumblr, the iconic producer is planning to return to the place that kicked it all off for him. Starting in the summer of 2015, the Grammy nominated producer will be kicking off a new multi-year residency with the Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub at the Wynn Las Vegas.
Kaskade has grown and evolved alongside dance music. His vital role has assisted in the scene reaching the level of success that it is at now. The first time he was booked to perform in Las Vegas wasn’t at a massive nightclub like today’s XS or Hakkasan, rather he was booked to play after-hours events for service industry workers looking for an introduction into electronic music at the time. However, in the summer of 2010, Kaskade made history for electronic music as the first ever solo EDM artist to be booked for a Las Vegas residency - his iconic Summer Lovin’ shows.
