Kaskade, named America’s Best DJ by DJ Times and Pioneer DJ brings his “Freaks of Nature” Summer 2012 Tour to STAPLES Center. Part of a 50-plus-city tour, he will be the first-ever solo electronic dance musician to headline STAPLES Center. The July 27th show is Kaskade’s first for his passionate Los Angeles fan base since two back-to-back, sold out shows at the Hollywood Palladium in 2010.
“The last two weekends at Coachella have been insanely electric and the new stage set up is everything I’ve been hoping it would be,” said Kaskade. “I’ve tried to take Los Angeles by storm a few times in the last year and the STAPLES Center show is finally the chance to really get all the fans in one place — it’s going to be massive and I’m honored to be the first DJ to be taking it over!”
Kaskade’s fourth solo album “Love Mysterious” was released in September 2006. The first single from the album, “Be Still”, reached #4 on Billboard Magazine’s Hot Dance Club Play. The single features vocalist Sunsun, and includes remixes by Jay-J and Robbie Rivera. Follow up single “Stars Align” hit number #8 on “Billboard Magazine” Hot Dance Airplay chart and just missed the top ten, #11, on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. His third single released from “Love Mysterious”, “Sorry”, was his third consecutive top ten hit on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay Chart, at #9. Dirty South provided a remix for “Sorry.” The remix was nominated for a 2008 Grammy for Best Remixed Recording.
Kaskade worked with Canadian house/electronic DJ/artist deadmau5 to produce tracks on Strobelite Seduction, including the first single (released as an EP) Move For Me. The single became his fifth top ten hit on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay Chart, reaching the number one position in its September 6, 2008 issue. It also gave Kaskade his first number one single on this chart. The dance single has become a crossover hit, managing to reach number 71 on the Canadian Hot 100 as of February 14, 2009. The follow-up single, “Angel On My Shoulder”, also found success on the dance chart, placing at number 5 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay Chart. “I Remember”, another collaboration with Deadmau5, became his first UK hit, peaking inside the top 15 on the Uk Singles Chart. The video-clip which accompanied “I Remember” was filmed in Manchester, England. The single became his second chart topper on the Billboard dance chart.
In 2010, he added another number one Billboard Hot Dance Airplay track to his credit with “Dynasty”, featuring Haley Gibby on vocals.
In March 2012, Kaskade headlined at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida, coming on before Armin van Buuren Sunday night. In April 2012, Kaskade took to Indio, California to headline opposite Radiohead two weekends at Coachella Valley Music Festival to a packed crowd. The American House producer was one of the headlining acts at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Nevada June of this year. In June 2012, he embarked on his “Freaks of Nature” summer tour in support of his released album “Fire & Ice”. This album reached #17 on Billboard’s Top 200 and #1 on Billboard’s US Top Dance chart.
