KAS-mas has arrived!
Move over Mariah Carey; there’s some new holiday tunes that will really put people in the mood for Christmas this year. A few years back, Ryan Raddon AKA Kaskade released “White Christmas” on Six Degrees Records and “Peace on Earth” on OM records. This year he has released an all-new Christmas album. This album features all new remixes and originals to warm us up for the holidays.
Christmas With Thought
One of the songs off the album was premiered on Insomniac’s Night Owl Radio on November 10. “Deck the Halls (ft. Erika)” has was released shortly after giving us a taste of the album. The song carries a warm vibe providing a soundtrack for imagining its listener with some hot cocoa next to a fire. Meanwhile the vocals for the track help set the tone and beautifully pairs the two elements together. Some other vocalists featured on the album are: Jane XO, Skylar Grey, Isley, and Late Night Alumni. Speaking of vocals, Kaskade sings in not one –but TWO– tracks off the new album.
After the announcement of Kaskade Christmas, Kaskade released a short journal entry on his website. The piece talks about the journey of the album and how it’s creation didn’t just happen overnight. Kaskade’s love for Christmas music sprouted and grew from childhood where he sang in church choir and then joined Varsity Choir for High School. This merry mix of modernized and holiday classics was curated over time with thought and precision. In his journal entry he wrote how people are very picky when it comes to Christmas music but asks for people to be open minded with new sounds.
“Christmas is fun, so is the music, and I’m here to bust up all the preconceived notions about what it should sound like. The mood of the season is about imagination, hope and love. There’s a lot that goes on in Holiday music that you don’t get to hear any other time of the year.”
