When asking about the state of dance music–


“Have audiences kind of changed at all? Like is the, what’s the kind of, are, are the kids more feral now, or is everyone just sort of exuberant and glad to be back? Like what are the, what’s the mood like out in the crowd these days?”

Kaskade: “Uh, I think last year it was wild. And then I think we’re kind of back to a normal rhythm now. Uh, although I was just in Asia and Asia has only recently just opened up and I’m going back again a little bit. But, uh, yeah, there, there’s still not like rabid stage like it’s happening. We’re together again. Oh my gosh, it’s good. Makes our job really easy.”

About Kx5:

deadmau5 and Kaskade first paired together in 2008 on “I Remember” – a genre-defining anthem which recently appeared on Rolling Stone’s ‘200 Greatest Dance Songs of All Time’ list, with the rock bible stating, “…a collaboration between two of the biggest dance stars to emerge in the late 2000s — has an appealing modesty about it, even as it induces mass singalongs at festivals (still).” Since then, they have collaborated on tracks such as the Top40 radio hit “Escape,” “Avalanche,” “Take Me High” and “Alive.”  As Kx5 they have solidified it into a wholly new artistic project, one which will consist of more studio releases in the coming months leading into an album in 2023, as well as a greatly anticipated live show set for December 10 at Los Angeles’ Memorial Coliseum
