Kx5 [Kaskade x deadmau5]
When Kaskade and deadmau5 first partnered on their 2008 smash “I Remember,”—heralded by Rolling Stone as one of the top 100 dance music tracks of all time--the pair were leading names in the rapidly expanding electronic music scene that enraptured a generation of music lovers across America. 14 years later, the duo has formalized into an official project, Kx5, with a self-titled album that carries on the genre-defining spirit of their early work with the additional excellence that comes from a decade and a half of studio and onstage experience for each. Those “different things” are evident in the evolving sound of Kx5 since the project was announced in March 2022 with the release of their Top40 single “Escape" followed by singles "Alive," "Avalanche" "Take Me High" and most recently "Sacrafice" with SOFI TUKKER.
