Grammy-nominated Kaskade is giving fans a taste of each of the previously unheard tracks from his forthcoming album Atmosphere, which is slated for a September 10 release from Ultra Music. With a very special 90-second video vignette for each of the 12 remaining tracks on the album that have yet to be released, Kaskade is teasing fans’ seemingly insatiable appetites with these first looks as they wait for the release of this highly anticipated album, which is currently available for pre-sale on iTunes.
As they’re released, all of the vignettes can be viewed on Kaskade’s Official Facebook page. Seven vignettes have been released so far: “Last Chance” with Project 46, “SFO to ORD”, “MIA to LAS”, “Take Your Mind Off”, “Feeling the Night” with Late Night Alumni’s Becky Jean Williams and “Floating” with Haley and “LAX to JFK”.
The 13-track album has its grand festival moments like emotive opener “Last Chance,” or anthemic party celebration “Feelin The Night” but it also has unexpected, vulnerable passages that showcase Kaskade as an artist in an entirely new way. The minimalist “Floating,” featuring one of Kaskade’s favorite vocalists Haley, uses only voice and pads to paint its picture. The longing love song “Something Something” (with two-piece band Zip Zip Through The Night) swells its heart to full with strings, ambling drums and vocals in perfect harmony. A series of instrumentals capture the solitude of airline travel, as well as the vibe of the places Kaskade was traveling between: “SFO to ORD,” for example, is an uncanny intersection of San Francisco and Chicago’s house music heritages, both of which are important to Kaskade’s evolution (he was once a resident of both cities).
In addition to his vocal favorites like Becky Jean Williams and Haley, this already-critically-acclaimed album also looks to others for some new sounds including indie darlings School of Seven Bells. Other collaborations on this album include Project 45, Late Night Alumni, Swanky Tunes, Lights and Debra Fotheringham.
