See What Kaskade Has Recently Been Up To
UCLA students will soon find themselves a part of Kaskade’s “atmosphere.”
Thursday, January 19th will mark the beginning of “Office Hours,” a live-streamed interview series hosted by the Cali based university in an effort to attract “prominent artists and entertainment executives from the music industry” to serve as speakers on the series. “Office Hours” strives to make some of the biggest names in music more accessible via discussions focused on the guests’ “career insights,” and overall tips regarding the realization of success within the music industry. The goal of the series is to provide students with access to speakers emblematic of industry achievement, to implement the guests as informational and inspirational sources for those students aspiring to break into the music business.
“Office Hours’” inaugural guest will be American DJ/producer, Kaskade. The “4 AM” producer will appear to speak on January 19th, an event that will begin at 5:30 pm and extend until 8:30 pm. The event will be broadcasted live on Tumblr and YouTube beginning at 6:30 pm for those unable to physically attend.
Regrettably, the ability to view “Office Hours” will be limited to UCLA students, who may register for tickets to the event at no charge, and who may likewise register online with a valid student ID to watch the online broadcast. Before and during the broadcast, students will be able to submit questions for the guest via Tumblr.
“Office Hours” is an event that casts every UCLA student as a figure of envy for the dance music fans curious to hear Kaskade’s advice, but unable to view the show as viewing rights are strictly limited to UCLA students. The series will notably host rapper, Machine Gun Kelly in February, an indication of the series’ commitment to obtaining the input of the industry’s best.
As “Office Hours” evolves, perhaps UCLA officials will expand online viewing access to non-UCLA students, whether free, or by fee, an approach that could generate new revenue for the university, while augmenting the institution’s already prestigious reputation. Our fingers are crossed that the series’ further development will yield such viewing abilities, but for now, the program remains a UCLA exclusive.
