Wynn Las Vegas served as the first exclusive residency in Las Vegas at Encore Beach Club for Kaskade in 2010. Now Kaskade will return home to the iconic locations that supported the start of his unprecedented career in dance music.
Ryan Raddon, better known by his stage name Kaskade, is an American DJ and record producer. On October 20, 2011, DJ Magazine announced the results of their annual Top 100 DJ Poll, with Ultra Records, Kaskade placed at No. 30. DJ Times polls voted Kaskade “America’s Best DJ 2011” and “America’s Best DJ 2013”.
Along with producers deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner, Kaskade became popular during the revival of American progressive house in late 2008-early 2009.
In 2010, he added another number one Billboard Hot Dance Airplay track to his credit with “Dynasty”, featuring Haley Gibby on vocals.
In March 2012, Kaskade headlined at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida, coming on before Armin van Buuren Sunday night.
In April 2012, Kaskade took to Indio, California to headline opposite Radiohead two weekends at Coachella Valley Music Festival. In June 2012, the American House producer was one of the headlining acts at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Nevada. That same month, he started the “Freaks of Nature” summer tour in support of his released album Fire & Ice.
In December 2013, Kaskade was nominated for two Grammy Awards: the song “Atmosphere” for Best Dance Recording and the album Atmosphere for Best Dance/Electronica Album. Atmosphere differs from his previous albums due to it’s melodic focus and addition of Mormon-centric lyrics. This combination has been increasingly referred to colloquially as ‘mormonic’.
In 2014, Kaskade was listed as the No. 8 highest paid DJ in the world according to Forbes, earning $17 million. – Wikipedia
