Kaskade at Global Dance Fest

Even among the many dance-music superstars slated to play this year's Global Dance Fest, Kaskade stands out as something special. The Utah-born DJ has crafted his own signature sound out of an unusual blend of disco-kissed deep house and big-room trance. Somehow he manages to balance these two disparate genres into a unified whole, leaning heavily on female vocals and sexy bass lines to tie it all together. In the studio, he's crafted a series of artist albums and a slew of hot remixes for mainstream artists including Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake, as well as underground acts such as Mark Farina and Colette. He's also dropped a number of fine mix discs and played clubs and festivals all over the world. Saturday, July 17, he brings it to the Global Dance crowd at Red Rocks for the festival's second night.
