Playlist Of The Week: KSKD Radio By Kaskade (Spotify Win)

https://play.spotify.com/user/kaskadeofficial/playlist/6yNEIJWUoSvgsAFT60NRF5

Can Kaskade do for dance music & Spotify what Kanye did for Twitter & hip hop? I think so. This expanding/evolving playlist on Spotify is going to be watched as he adds more and more tunes to it over his touring and insanely awesome life. Keep this one as a favorite. With tunes from CASHMERE Cat, ODESZA, Yuna, Caribou, SOHN, Keys N Krates, and Ella Fitzgerald, it’s pretty obvious that Kaskade is even more awesome than we all thought he was. If this playlist becomes a space for Kaskade to feature his favorite new and upcoming tracks, in addition to peppering it with his own hits and new stuff, I think this could do a lot for Spotify as a listening platform for artist curation, not just “all the music forever.” This is critical for Spotify’s continued development, especially in America where people listen to what they’re told to listen to, instead of searching out their own deep dives for tracks (pop music spectrum, put down your pitchforks crate diggers).

Favorite it, and hit me up on Spotify if you’d like. Same Bat-name, Same Bat-profile pic.

Midnight Music: ViLLAGE’s Soulful Remix of Lullabies by Adventure Club ft. Luna

ViLLAGE was one of a smattering of artists that have gotten me through a very tough time. This track & the Takeover EP listed below have this tragic but beautiful feel to them. Lullabies was one of the gems that came out of the collaboration between Adventure Club & Yuna. If you haven’t heard Gold by the two of them, change that.

The muffled nature of the vocal samples implies that night when you saw your ex after long enough. Or, you thought it had been long enough. Get at both the track & the EP, and show Origami Sound, ViLLAGE’s bleeding-edge label, some love as well.
