Kaskade and deadmau5 first partnered on their 2008 smash "I Remember," heralded by Rolling Stone as one of the Top 100 dance music tracks of all time.
14 years later, the duo has formalized their occasional collaborations and long-running friendship into an official project, Kx5, with a self-titled album that carries on the genre-defining spirit of their early work with the additional excellence that comes from a decade and a half of studio and onstage experience for each.
Those "different things" are evident in the evolving sound of Kx5 since the release of "Escape." The debut single carried on the tradition of sleek melodic house music first heard on "I Remember," securing significant Top 40 radio play and eventually becoming the #1 dance track of the year in 2022.
However, it was just the starting point for months of sonic exploration that resulted in tougher-sounding songs like "Alive" featuring The Moth & The Flame (TMTF), "Avalanche" and "Take Me High."
Combining the pop sense of Kaskade and the technical focus of deadmau5, Kx5 is a no-frills electronic dance attack custom-built for maximum euphoric effect, recalling the halcyon days of the late-'90s/early-2000s club scene....A bright and absolutely joyous experience, Kx5 is an expertly paced, start-to-finish wonder.
