Kaskade Croatia Zrce beach Island Pag Novalja – Noa beach club
American DJ sensation, guy that was voted as America’s best D.J. for 2011 and 2013 was @ NOA.
The New York Times may have called him the “new face of electronic dance music” in a recent profile, but Ryan Raddon, known as Kaskade, has been in the trenches of the EDM scene as an original recording artist and in-demand DJ for more than a decade. He has released seven studio albums, including his latest 2011 release Fire & Ice; scored XX Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay Chart; created chart-topping remixes for everyone from Lady Gaga to Beyoncé; and, in addition to appearing at all the major summer festivals, has performed between 150 and 200 headlining shows a year for the last 10 years. In doing so, he has helped to lay the groundwork for a titanic musical and cultural shift: a post-rock revolution that has captured the imagination of a new generation of music lovers across North America. Case in point is the growing popularity of the Electric Daisy Carnival, which Kaskade has performed at since 2005 and drew more than 230,000 people to its main event in Las Vegas just last year.
Kaskade’s belief in the transformative power of dance music to uplift thousands of people at once has had a significant effect on the U.S. scene. His ground-breaking double residency in Las Vegas at the Encore Beach Club – which had not even been built when he signed on – and Marquee has elevated the city’s status as a premiere club-going destination on par with London, Berlin, and Ibiza, while his ability to attract thousands of people to mid-week shows in the middle of the country, as well as on the coasts, is another testament to his popularity. In addition, Kaskade’s commitment to exposing Americans to EDM has paved the way for such well-established European acts as David Guetta and Swedish House Mafia to connect with Stateside audiences on a larger scale.
Kaskade’s current position as EDM’s most sought-after emissary and one of its most beloved figures – he has been named America’s No. 1 DJ by DJ Times and Pioneer DJ – is due large in-part to his laid-back, unaffected demeanor, but it all boils down to the music.
