Six-time Grammy® nominated singer, songwriter and producer Kaskade will perform a special New Year’s Eve show at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium for the third year in a row.
He has kicked down doors and pushed boundaries in genre- defying “firsts”. He was the first DJ to conceptualize and hold down the now Pop-Star littered landscape of the Las Vegas residency. Kaskade also has the distinction of being the first ever solo electronic dance artist to sell-out both the Barclays Center in NYC and the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Billboard Magazine declared that Kaskade’s 2012 Freaks of Nature Tour was “the only successful national stadium tour undertaken by a solo electronic music artist.”
Kaskade has nine full-length chart-topping albums, a standout characteristic in the dance music industry. His latest, Automatic claimed the #2 spot on the Billboard Dance /Electronic Albums Chart. Automatic commanded a Top 15 placement on the U.S. Digital Chart, as well as amassing over 50 million streams on Spotify in less than a year’s time. Rolling Stone asserts that “Kaskade represents an intensely positive side of dance music culture”, another cornerstone in the foundation that sets Kaskade apart.
Nineties sounds refracted through a thoroughly modern aesthetic. Tracks that are serious about moving a dance floor full of people without coming on too strong. Breezy California vibes touched by a twist of European flair and an air of mystery. This is what Le Youth is about.
Wes James is the slightly enigmatic Angeleno behind Le Youth, a producer without a past whose music is steeped in it. His signature sound is a blend of Clinton-era R&B and the house music that was lighting up dancefloors and radio stations around the globe during the same period, and the leisurely grooves, airy synthesizers, and pop hooks of a song like his debut single “C O O L” that can easily pull a listener back to the pre-millennial, pre-Internet days when dance music offered a transcendentally blissful brand of hedonism that’s considerably harder to find on today’s macho-tinged EDM landscape.
Viewers of the video for “C O O L” (directed by Renata Raksha) who know their 90s music will likely pick up on the influence of a number of cultural touchstones from the time: chart-topping crossover club acts like Technotronic and Black Box, house divas like Robin S. and CeCe Peniston, and R&B icons like Aaliyah and Ginuwine, as well as a visual sensibility that evokes Herb Ritts in his role as video director to the decade’s biggest pop superstars. It’s got retro style while maintaining completely contemporary feel that’s free from gimmicks and offers stylishly relaxed relief from the ongoing onslaught of dayglo-tinged bass music and big room EDM.
Le Youth’s already attracted the attention of taste-making dance music bloggers and DJ’s the world over, and his music has continued to impress with each successive release including “Dance With Me,” “Feel Your Love,” “Girl,” and well-received remixes for the likes of Disclosure, Sam Smith,RAC, Jess Glynne, Tensnake, and Chromeo. Having already debuted his latest singles “R E A L” and “T O U C H,” and with remixes out this Fall for Alina Baraz & Galimatias, Goldroom, Seinabo Sey, and Digital Farm Animals, Le Youth is continuing his hot streak in 2015 with no signs of stopping.
