After Kaskade discovered that many rips of his Essential Mix for BBC’s Radio 1 that were being downloaded had terrible quality, he tweeted this:
All these rips of my essential mix sound like crap. How bouts I just load that sucker up on soundcloud tmrw for ya. #KMM
This statement was tweeted yesterday, making today our lucky day. Kaskade just uploaded a quality version of the mix onto his SoundCloud, which we have posted for you to directly download from here. So, for all of you that don’t follow Kaskade on Twitter, or simply don’t have a Twitter and have been looking for this mix, here you go! We discovered that this mix is very similar to his Identity set @ The Gorge. So if you wanted re-live the last moments of IdentityFest, then grab the essentials right here!

If words could describe how absolutely EPIC Identity Festival was, we would love to use them to give you a detailed explanation. Unfortunately, between Nero, Kaskade, Rusko, The Disco Biscuits, and Pretty Lights, our state of mind is still blown away, leaving us with nothing to do but smile. For those of you that were fortunate enough to attend Identity Fest– you know what we mean. For everyone else- you’re in luck! The great success of this years FIRST ever Identity has sealed the deal, and proven that the world of EDM is definitely on the rise.
Although we would have loved to have seen less commercialization of the event, we were stoked on the turnout. Hopefully as Identity Fest grows, it will not focus as much on revenue from material sales, and will be able to focus much more on the music itself. For those of us that live for the music, even the first year left us completely satisfied. Our MASSIVE compilation of photos and videos documenting the weekend will be up soon, in the meantime, here is a little preview of Pretty Lights absolutely slaying it. Like we said…..words can’t describe.
The Usual Suspects will be gone to IdentityFest @ The Gorge —hosted by our hometowns USC Events— until Sunday, but we can’t express in words how excited we are right now. Hope you all have awesome weekend and we miss you Lauren Hruska! Catch you all on the return, but enjoy this song by Dell Gibbons ft. Miss. Roberts – Freedom (Fronzerelli’s Superclub Piano Dub) and don’t forget to move your body.
But actually turn it UP! Another great song that Kaskade has concocted while touring with the States’ with the largest electronic-only festival, Identity. We truly can’t reiterate enough how excited we are to hear Kaskade live @ The Gorge. This tune has a very Tegan& Sara feel to it, but with that Midas touch that can only be linked to one of the States best DJ/Producers (if not THE best). Hope you all enjoy this song, wherever your Friday takes you.
With IdentityFest only 12 more days away from The Gorge and new music from the tour constantly pouring onto the web, then how can we contain our excitement? Oh yes, that’s right… we can’t! Here’s another new mash up from the incredible Kaskade . Enjoy!
Kaskade & EDX vs. Alex Gaudino – Don’t Stop Kissing (Kaskade Mash Up)
Steve Aoki just released a teaser of his new single Earthquakey People, which is due out in a couple of months. The release of his single will be followed up with the release of his new album by the turn of the new-year. The track features Rivers Cuomo (from Weezer) for the vocals and Aoki also states that there’ll be a dubstep version of this track on the new album too. We look forward to hearing it, but for now enjoy the teaser!
UPDATE – Live version being played @ IdentityFest:
Identity is into its full second week travelling the United States and it’s about time for us to highlight another artist that will be coming back to the Emerald City! Rusko has been throwing down some pretty hard beats from what we’ve heard/seen online and you should prepare yourself for nothing less than an amazing set from him @ The Gorge.
Listed below are some songs to check out from him:
Check out this video of Kaskade & Steve Aoki tossing down a tag set at IdentityFest in Philly. Hopefully this will be more of a regular occurring thing as Identity rolls through more of the tour stops and finally reaches its last stop @ The Gorge Amphitheater here in Seattle. T-minus 19 days, so get excited!
Check out this interview with Kaskade as he talks about IdentityFest too:
Song in opening of second video: Nicole Scherzinger – Don’t Hold Your Breath(Kaskade Remix)
Here is a sweet new bootleg that Chuckie just posted for his Identity Festivals! A little Kanye, Jay Z and Benassi collide to create a twisted, funky beat for you to enjoy. Satisfaction never gets old….
Last weekend kicked off the beginning of IdentityFest here in the states. For Seattle that means 23 days until The Gorge will be packed with EDM fans from all over the NorthWest . The major headliner for Identity is DJ/Producer Kaskade . Kaskade has a vast repertoire of music that shows his range as an artist.
