Kaskade coming to LA in October

 Kaskade, the trailblazing DJ who marked industry milestones with his critically-acclaimed Summer tour last year, has announced plansfor his Atmosphere tour to play big rooms on a small tour.  Taking him to Miami, New York, Chicago and three dates in Los Angeles beginning in September, the tour is in support of his forthcoming album, Atmosphere, slated for release in September from Ultra Music.  The title track, “Atmosphere,” will be the first single from the forthcoming album and will be released on June 10th through all digital retailers.  Pre-sale for the Atmosphere tour begins on Wednesday, June 5 at noon local venue time with tickets on sale to the general public on Friday, June 7 at noon local venue time atwww.kaskadeatmosphere.com

“Everything this summer and fall will be about Atmosphere,” said Kaskade.  “I’ve got the single first then the album and the tour and I’m just so excited for all of it.  The single is special for me since it is the first time I sing on one of my tracks and with receiving a GRAMMY nomination for the first time ever on my last album, this album feels all that more precious to me because I really want to deliver in a big way.  With so few dates on the tour, I’m looking forward to making each show massive and really count like never before.”

The single, “Atmosphere,” debuted on Pete Tong’s well-known radio show and features Kaskade singing on a recorded track of his for the first time in his career.  With harmonic and, at times, ethereal vocals, “Atmosphere” builds from a melodic tune to big beats and electric sounds that will quickly become a welcome earworm and summer favorite.  The album, Atmosphere, is the follow up to Kaskade’s GRAMMY-nominated 2011 album Fire & Ice.

Fresh off his “It’s You, It’s Me” Redux tour that took the DJ back to his roots visiting small clubs in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of his debut album, Kaskade will play fewer shows for this next tour but in big venues including American Airlines Arena, Barclays Center, Navy Pier Exhibition Hall and the legendary Shrine Expo Hall.  Once again, Kaskade will mark another industry milestone but this time at Navy Pier Exhibition Hall, being the first EDM artist to ever perform in this space.
