After splitting from some major record labels, Kaskade has been quite open on his tumblr account expressing his frustration with deciphering the conflicts that occur when the creative side meets the industrial side of music. So when Ultra Records contacted Kaskade about a possible ‘Best of/Greatest Hits’ release, he had to laugh at the idea and wrote, “I feel like I am JUST NOW hitting my stride as a songwriter and producer.”
After toying with the idea for some time, Ryan came to the conclusion that this compilation would be a great way to compile some choice tracks as a way to document his progression as a producer; in a way it’s catalogue of snap shots in his ever-developing career. The final decisions boiled down to which tracks were most popular among his fans, and while they may not all be his personal choice favorites, they are indicative of some major milestones in the artist’s career (and to this he stands firmly saying, “Down with the man!!”).
While some may be a bit disheartened that their favorite tracks were not included (Ryan hears them loud and clear on that front), we are excited to see some of our own personal favorites make the final cut, including the premier track ‘I Remember’ as well as the classic ‘Turn it Down’. The digital download can be pre-ordered off Amazon here and is set to release via iTunes on the 22nd of July.
