Kaskade Quotes 2028954

I think that most people who hire me to do a remix just want it to work in a nightclub, whereas when I'm writing my own album, I don't have to worry so much about 2 A.M. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1801099

If you listen to a Deadmau5 record or a Skrillex record, I really enjoy that stuff because, as aggressive sounding as the Skrillex records are, they're still musical, and that's why they have such a broad appeal. — Kaskade

Dance music will always be around. People around the world love to dance. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1477843

People book me because of the songs I write, not because of the sets that I play, per se ... I'm sure I'm going to be moving to a laptop really soon, but I was one of the last guys to let the vinyl go. I was crying. In my room, I still have thousands of records. I still pull them out and play them all the time. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1065305

Copyright law is a dinosaur, ill-suited for the landscape of today's media. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1744966

there's so much more room for happiness. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 424088

There is so much great talent in the underground, and electronic music is finally getting the props that it's deserved for so long. I feel like now that everyone is discovering it and it's so fresh sounding to so many people. It doesn't get any more rock n' roll than playing EDC or the Staples Center. It's really madness. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 385657

I'm more of an artist and a songwriter than I am a DJ. That word seems a little bit - well, it doesn't really describe what I do. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 703846

Club culture is about leaving your cares behind, and I am trying to create that environment. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 615425

For me, 'Atmosphere' was more about looking inwards and reaching out to people close to me. To emphasize the fact that I'm singing on the first single, this album is really more about me and songs that I've written instead of collaborating with people. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 368320

Kaskade Quotes 959954

I don't need the factory behind me. I just need help getting my music heard. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1243444

It's an honor for me to close out Mysteryland. In American music history this is hallowed ground. I think electronic music has a lot in common with the spirit of rock and roll and what Woodstock had going on at the time. We are kind of the new kids on the block and this music isn't accepted by everyone so we are still kind of getting into pop culture and I think its appropriate that this festival is here and kicking down the door. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 2127265

When you go see a good DJ, you'll know it, man - you'll know it in your bones. Between the guy who's phoning it in and the guy who's obsessively working it to give you the best show of his life. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1588862

I think people look at dance music and see it as kind of a bad thing, and bad people hang out in nightclubs, but it never felt that way for me. Growing up in Chicago, music was the thing that saved me, that kept me on the straight and narrow. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1614377

Mix CDs are interesting. I'm known more for my artist albums and less for my mix CDs. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1222710

It's interesting: in the late '80s, there was this really random mix of new wave, industrial, and these early house records. And a lot of it was coming out of Chicago because of Wax Trax! So I always visited Wax Trax Records. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1593083

I'm not the best singer in the world, but the albums have always been personal. They're stories about me and what I'm going through. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1745952

I love a great melody and wonderful lyrics that speak from the heart, and my music has that and speaks about it; but there's just something that was really raw and energetic about the early House music. It's hard to describe. It's like you had to go to these parties where the stuff was being played on these huge sound systems to really feel it. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1767066

I do feel like there's a level of ridiculousness going on in electronic music ... It's getting borderline absurd out there. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1794659

I DJ'd for years. I DJ'd in high school, and I think my parents thought it was a passing thing. And then when I was in my second year of college, I was like, 'Yeah, you guys don't need to send me money anymore. My DJ gigs are good enough. I'm selling music; I think I'm gonna have a record deal. I can pay my tuition.' — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1798556

I think there is some truth to the fact that yeah, okay, cool, obviously the more mainstream kind of easier-to-grasp-onto dance music has become popular, but that holds true with almost any genre. It wasn't like the Sex Pistols hit the radio. It was poppier versions of that is what hit. It's never, like, the true core stuff. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1866146

People know my lyrics; they know the stuff I've written, and it's all about life, love, happiness, and these big euphoric moments. It would always bug me when I'd go to a club, and they're playing some chick on a stripper pole on the monitor behind me. I'm like, 'So that's not what I do - that's the other guy.' — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1952069

As a kid, my parents had the typical stuff going on in the home, like Bee Gees, The Carpenters. Then I got exposed to what my brothers were listening to: a lot of classic rock, Led Zeppelin. It was around the mid-'80s when the whole Electro-Techno-Pop-House music thing started happening in Chicago. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1963829

To do more of a concert thing, it takes so much preparation. You don't just show up and wing it. You're putting countless hours in the studio, not just to write and produce stuff, but to come up with edits and special things for the show. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 2146415

But know this: as far as a music culture goes, EDM is the one who will accept the kids on the outliers, the ones who get bullied, the ones who feel like they may not quite fit in. This community is exceptional in its ability to bond all types together, and I am not exaggerating when I say it saves lives. Our audience is intelligent and kind, discriminating only in regards to which sound they like best. Our audience is unprecedented in their drive to proactively support each other. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 836787

People don't listen to terrestrial radio. They don't find their music that way. They don't get their news that way. They go to blogs. They go through Sirius/XM. They go through all these different places. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 128371

I remember last time I played Nocturnal Wonderland I dropped that 'Move 4 First Aid' mashup and people ripping their hair out ... crazy night. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 179304

Once I wrote 'Atmosphere,' I thought, 'This is my story; it's me and my life and what I've gone through to get to where I am.' I'm not the best singer, but still. All of my albums are personal, but putting myself out there and singing is one more thing that makes me vulnerable - one more thing that people can fire shots at. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 199242

When I graduated college, I had a fairly successful weekly club gig and was buying more studio equipment and writing my own music. I realized I didn't want to work. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 208066

Kaskade Quotes 700090

I have really fond memories of growing up in Chicago, and I always love going back. I still have a lot of really good friends from high school that I go to dinner with. It's kind of become a tradition when I go out there to do a show to give a few friends a call, tell some funny stories about high school and walk down memory lane. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 738783

It's weird, when I go back to San Francisco, the few times that I've done shows there since leaving, it still feels like I live there. It's very, very strange for me. That's where my daughter was born, at UCSF. I have this huge attachment to San Francisco. It's like a love affair. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 806380

I've always been a big advocate of making shows affordable because a lot of these bottle-service clubs and events are geared toward really expensive experiences. Club music is for everyone, and it drives me crazy that people are getting priced out. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1554870

Listening to music is such an uplifting, spiritual thing. It's far-fetched to some - I understand that. But the way dance music brings people together, it's not a big stretch from hymns. — Kaskade

I travel a lot. I spend close to 300 days a year on the road. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1047503

I studied communications, only because I could get my own show on the campus radio station. I never thought of it as a career. Music was always a really passionate hobby - it was like collecting DVDs or stamps. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1133504

I think how Chicago plays a role in my life - it had such a role in my youth and the decisions that I made as a kid and formulated who I am as an artist early on. — Kaskade

Music evokes a lot of different emotions and triggers different senses. — Kaskade

You don't have to move on to let go. — Kaskade

Kaskade Quotes 1509700

Music leaves such a big impression. I always wondered, 'Man, if I grew up in Nashville, would I be making Country records now?' I honestly feel like Chicago had such a big impact on me. — Kaskade
