I’ve been doing a lot of commuting these days–driving, mainly. And somewhere in between Twittering with Tila Tequila, eating cheese sandwiches, and keeping my feet positioned at 10 and 2 on the steering wheel, I find that sometimes I simply do not have the time to negotiate a playlist swap mid-travel. It’s like, helloooo…I’m inconvenienced over here!
Luckily, Kaskade has seemingly heard of my plight and provided an answer for those of us folks in it for the long haul: The Grand.
With his new album, Kaskade has unleashed a wealth of clever club cuts and dancefloor re-rubs from artists like Pnau, Mischa Daniels, and Tommy Trash, as well as favorites from his last effort Strobelite Seduction like “Move For Me,” “Step One Two,” and “Angel On My Shoulder.”
It’s a moody and engaging set as Kaskade is want to provide; a brilliant compromise of breathy, aerial vocals and crafted beats that catapult his work into a state of euphoria. Don’t believe me? If the Plumb track doesn’t have you crying at the discotheque, you’ve been reading the wrong blog.
Not only are the individual songs gorgeous, the album itself moves together as one seamless mix that refuses to break until its final moments. This is true, heaven-sent trance at its finest, and you’d be an absolute fool not to invest in this one.
Now if only my other summer dance anthem would leak in rich HQ form.
When love takes over, yeah-ee-ah…
