It’s been years since Kaskade‘s first Redux EP came out, but the wait is over — the second installment has been released. Releasedon his own imprint Arkade, Redux EP 002is featuring the predicted six songs and an additional single called “That Dance” with LöKii.
The album opens with a wubbly hook over a guitar-laden pop groove on “Nobody Like You.”
The radio vibe doesn’t last long, as “Show of Hands” kicks thing into smoky-club overdrive. It’s a funky, beat-heavy house party wave featuring LöKii and Mr. Tape that’ll have you head bangin’ in your swivel chair.
The deep house EP perfectly showcases the concept behind Kaskade’sRedux movement.
With the inaugural set of music and accompanying tour, the producer sought to bring deep house music to smaller crowds of 200-300 people, taking his fans back to his humble beginnings in the dance music scene.
Kaskade hits us with the sexy comedown next on “Tell Me,” with Late Nite Alumni. It’s a swingin’ take on future bass, a slice of dreamy R&B with jazz drums, both fresh and familiar in an instant.
“Play With Me” dives into deep bass melodies and airy vocals. Late Nite Alumni returns on the chill-yet-punchy “Gone,” then finishes strong with that starting vibe, a remix of “Nobody Like You” created for his Sun Soaked party series. It encircles the project in a satisfyingly literary way.
With captivating vocals and invigorating melodic house beats, Kaskade captures the spirit of his Redux movement. Listen to the 6-track Redux EP 002 is out now on his own label Arkade.
