on September 1, 2017, the legend Kaskade will release his awaited second Redux EP. Introduced in 2014, Kaskade (Ryan Raddon) unveiled the “Redux” (pronounced Re-doo) style through a series of shows created to take the listener back to his musical roots. In the early days in Chicago’s underground scene, Raddon fine-tuned his skills and developed his craft, while playing alongside house music legends such as Frankie Knuckles. It was around then in 2014 when Kaskade released the five track Redux EP to feature this very style.
Fans have waited a long time for more Redux, and it looks like their wishes will finally be granted. Kaskade announced REDUX EP 002 will release on September 1st. It’s unclear at this time what we can expect from the EP in terms of length and track listing. With the amount of Redux shows popping up and now a new EP, Kaskade fans have something to look forward to once again. The new EP will be available via his label Arkade.
Following the initial EP’s reveal, Redux quickly became a “cult-classic” amongst Kaskade’s diehard fanbase.
Typically held in an intimate and dark venue, a Redux set lasts 3+ hours. The music takes over the venue and the crowd. Although music selection varies from show to show, fans are guaranteed to hear something they know, but with a new twist.
If you’re already familiar with Kaskade’s music and artistry, you appreciate the musical and mental preparation clearly put into each set. In any Redux set, fans always expect to hear his hit track “4 AM.”
“Redux is a harmonic mixture of all aspects of opposites: the dark and the warm, the explosive and the demure, and of course, the old and the new.”
Kaskade has been far from stagnant in his career, despite a three year gap since the release of his last Redux EP. We look forward to what surprises Raddon continues to have up his sleeve.
