Over the past year or so, techno has started to become more mainstream. As any meme will tell you, techno used to be reserved for snobby old heads too cool for the mainstage. As it turns out, deep, pounding bass and dark warehouse beats are actually perfect for raving! From David Guetta, to Hardwell, to Oliver Heldens’ Hi-Lo alias, there are more and more artists taking their sound down a darker, more underground path.
Enter the new single from Kaskade, “Dance with Me.” Teaming up with up and coming Dutch producer Justus, “Dance with Me” sees the ever-evolving Kaskade try his hand at an underground techno banger. And, you know what, it’s an utter success. Featuring that trademark booming techno kick in the background, the track builds up with old-school sounding synth hits over the unrelenting kick drum.
Check out the latest from Kaskade & Justus, “Dance with Me” out now on Arkade. Kaskade will be ringing in the New Year at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, get your tickets here!
