Biografie

Being at the right time, at the right place, sometimes you need a little bit of luck to succeed in life. This applies to American DJ Ryan Raddon, better known as Kaskade. Bryan grew up in Chicago where he developed his love for electronic music. During college he started producing music in his dorm room, but to support his DJ career he also ran his own record store in Salt Lake City. Wanting to move to New York, Bryan worked there briefly but moved to San Francisco with his wife Naomi, this was however the best move they could have made. Early 2000’s, San Francisco had a new up and coming house scene with genres like deep house. He began working as an A&R assistant for a record company, which would later on be the first record label to release his music. The name Kaskade comes from the picture of a waterfall he once saw, and he altered the word cascade to create his stage name. Success came to him in 2006 when he released ‘Love is Mysterious’, the track reached the US Dance Chart and his songs have since then been doing well. The songs he produces are melodic, always with strong vocals, and lyrics with which he wishes to reach the publics' hearts. He’s worked together with artists such as Deadmau5, Tiësto and Skrillex and held residencies at clubs such as the Encore Beach Club and Marquee. He’s furthermore held stage at every major North American festival entertaining the ‘sing along’ crowd. Now also writing and singing his own vocal, this DJ is constantly expanding his sunny horizon.
