Kaskade releases 14 new songs with Redux 003

In the third installment of Kaskade’s Redux series, he has collected 18 tracks. Kaskade has been firm on Twitter that this is an EP, not an album. In total there are 14 new songs. Previously released tracks include: On Your Mind, Fun, Love Me Like You Used To, and Tight.

If you are unfamiliar with the Redux series, then you might be excited to learn that the project sticks very close to deep house. Redux was started in 2013 as a Kaskade tour, where he focused largely on his classic deep house production with a modern twist. In six years, it has become a fundamental facet of Kaskade’s career.

There have been multiple Redux gatherings over the last 12 months. For consecutive years in a row,  Kaskade hosted a Redux afterparty for Electric Daisy Carnival. Also at Bonnaroo 2018, he played a sunrise Redux set. To finish the year, Kaskade split his New Year’s Eve set into 3.5 hours of Redux, and 2.5 hours of his typical mainstage performance.

Standout Tracks:

Dancin’(Feat. Lökii)
This is the third song that Kaskade and Producer Lökii have collaborated on. The chorus is pretty comical. “We don’t want your dope//we want you low down on the floor//we want you dancing.” A strong example of the underground house that Kaskade is able to explore with Redux.

Loose
Feels like the counterpart to the October release of Tight. The two tracks have similar tempos, and they both feature “keep it tight,” or “I’m loose,” lyrics. Loose feels a darker and more mysterious remixed version of Tight. This is not the kind of music you would usually expect from Kaskade. There are no warm and fuzzy pop vocals. It is just a pure and grimy song.

Ruckus
A high energy house track coming in at number 17 on the tracklist. Also not your typical Kaskade song. Featuring male vocals, Sego has a unique singing style. Ruckus is certainly the climax of the album. Be prepared for the guitar sequences at 1 minute 02 and 2 minutes 03. Those sequences brought the track to it’s highest potential.

No Plans for Redux 003 Tour

Sadly Kaskade confirmed no plans for an accompanying tour with this release. Right now the only official Redux shows are in New York on May 17, and during Sun Soaked in July.

Kaskade took full advantage of the term “EP.” He was able to completely remove all the pressure that comes with album work. Without pressure, Kaskade’s creativity was able to shine through. His entire EP feels like a mixture of the newest in underground and experimental house music.
