Kaskade Remixes Tinashe's "Flame"
Soaring pyrotechnics, confetti explosions, and highly developed visuals aside, perhaps the most astonishing factor of Kaskade’s “Spring Fling” mini tour spanning six cities is its announcement—the “Eyes” producer sold out venues in New York and Washington simply by sharing news of the tour’s booking in the respective areas. Kaskade didn’t drop a new EP to attract fans to attend Spring Fling; fans bought tickets on their own volition, not needing a substantial amount of new music to tempt or entice them to spend an evening with Mr. Ryan Raddon, a tribute not only to the DJ’s immeasurable amount of talent, but to his longevity within the dance music sphere.
Yet new Kaskade is nevertheless upon us, taking the form of a Kaskade branded remix crafted for Tinashe’s single, “Flame.” Debuted at the Middlelands festival in Texas weekends prior, where Kaskade noted that the remix was not completely finished, Kaskade test drove the take on the Tinashe original there, later incorporating it into his two-hour sets at Hammerstein Ballroom, New York, as part of his metropolitan Spring Fling appearances.
Published on the “2 On” singer’s VEVO account mere hours ago, the re-imagination is presumably now finished, and ready for the general public’s review. The remix is classic Kaskade—expressive, emotive lyrical content paired with slower introductory chords that build, the drop complemented by mounting female vocals in sync with the background beats. The remix appears below, leaving us sure that we’ve still indeed “got the flame” for Kaskade.
