EDITORS’ NOTES

Where 2008’s Strobelite Seduction was ethereal, its 2010 follow-up adds tantalizing bite to Kaskade's lush, deep-driving house, contrasting airy vocals and pop polish with harder-edged synths and drums. The results bridge the West Coast DJ's main-stage spark and his intimate, after-hours modes. "Fire In Your New Shoes" recruits Dragonette for a snarling, New Wave rave-up, and "Human Reactor" stirs extra grit into his signature sumptuous chords. Brushed with feathery acoustic guitars, "Don't Wait" could be a lost Everything But the Girl tune, while the muscular "Dynasty" perfects his balance of fire and ice.

Welcome To Kaskades Dynasty

If Strobelite Seduction didn't break enough ground already, Dynasty just blows any doubts you had about Kaskade. Never has an album sounded so familiar yet so new. Every song is incredible, here's a breakdown:

-"Start Again" --> (9/10) Great way to start the album with Becky Jean Williams of Late Night Alumni, totally surprised me at first listen
-"Don't Stop Dancing" --> (10/10) No doubt one of the best tracks on the album. Haleys voice is incredible. Gonna be a big on in the clubs, especially with its catchy chorus.
-"Dynasty" --> (6/10) For a title track it's kind of weak and sounds more like 80's synthpop than Kaskade. Haleys vocals are great. Get the ID remix of this song instead, it's much better.
-"Say It's Over" -->(8/10) Mindy Gledhill seems to have replaced Sunsuns spot from strobelite seduction. A pretty catchy track.
-"Fire In Your New Shoes"--> (8/10) CLASSIC Kaskade. My only problem with it is that IT WAS TOO SHORT, or it would have been awesome.
-"Human Reactor" --> (10/10) Polina seems to be the Tamra Keenan of this album. Great song, very interesting vocals.
-"Only You" --> (9/10) Well, it's the Tiesto collab. Can't fail there. Although I think haley could have done a little more with her vocals.
-"Call Out"-->(10/10) Chillest Track on the album. Very classic kaskade. Reminds me of "I'll Never Dream" from Strobelite.
-"To The Skies"-->(9/10) Again, Polinas very different vocals with a very different beat comes up with something new.
-"Don't Wait"-->(11/10) My favorite track on the CD. The perfect clash of New Kaskade and Old Kaskade, turns into a thing of beauty.
-"Empty Streets" -->(8/10) A great remix and all, but to be honest i like the original and first kaskade remix better =/.
-"All That You Give" --> (9/10) Though I expected something more upbeat for a closing track, this thing is incredible. Beautiful strings.
-"Only You (kaskade Remix)" --> (7/10) It's good...but I reccomend the original, this just overdoes an already great track

Overall, incredible album and a much much much different feel than Stroblite Seduction or any of his other album, definitely worth the 10 dollars (I actually wouldn't have minded if it were $20). Should be the soundtrack to the summer!

The great thing about Dance music, and especially Kaskade, is that I can work, work out, drive, chill, and entertain with the same CD. It's really hard to do that with other genres.
