You’d be hard-pressed to name more than 5 artists that have more clout in America than Kaskade. It might be his personality or his incredible productions, but there is something about this west coast producer that draws people to him. There isn’t a Kaskade show that isn’t sold out and this weekend at Marquee Dayclub was no different. He is a true craftsman behind the decks, constructing intricate and eclectic sets that drive crowds wild without being too cliche and predictable. Click past the break to check out the 5 tracks that defined the party.
1) Kenneth G – Bazinga
The Bingo Players did a great job when they discovered Kenneth G’s “Bazinga,” a guaranteed fist-pumper favorite. It has that distinct drop and just a touch of acid house to keep things interesting. This is definitely one of the biggest party tracks of the year, even if people fail to recognize it.
2) John Dahlback – Embrace Me (Dirty South Remix)
We don’t have to get into the nitty gritty here, very few tracks have this sort of power over a club.
3) Florence and The Machine – Spectrum (Calvin Harris Remix)
In recent years, Calvin has built his reputation by creating pop-oriented dance tunes and his remix of Florence and the Machine’s “Spectrum” fits that description to a tee. It’s a good change of pace for people that are raging throughout the entire party — think of it like a nice break to collect yourself (and possibly re-evaluate your dancing partner) amidst the craziness.
4) Deniz Koyu – Bong
This tune is pure fun. We can’t wait until Deniz releases his newest 4 letter tune that is set to come out in the near future. We hope it delivers (actually, scratch that, who are we kiding? we know it will.) Make sure to check out Ken Loi’s bootleg that mixes The Naked and Famous’ “Young Blood” and “Bong” together — the booty is titled “Young Bong.”
5) Kaskade – Lessons in Love (Fareoh Remix)
Yes, Kaskade had to drop an Avicii-esque tune to get the crowd in the mood. If you are not accustomed to progressive banter we highly suggest that you start getting into it. Kaskade has the ability to toggle between proggy fire and commercial music which is why he is one of the most sought-after US DJ/Producers in the game right now. The guy is pure talent and understands how to work a crowd.
