Well a few weeks ago I wrote about some of the more vital songs of 2009. Well there was the glaring omission of the artist/DJ Kaskade (aka Ryan Raddon) whose 2008 album “Strobelight Seduction” was still pumping out a few hits well into 2009 so on a technicality I thought it was fair to leave him of the list. Some of you might think I don’t know what I am talking about because I could have mentioned his fantastic remix album “The Grand” which was released in ’09. That would be a fair criticism, but in my honest opinion while a good remix album for sure, the only really standout track was “Angel On My Shoulder (EDX`s Belo Horizonte At Night Remix)” and since that and most of the other tracks were reworkings of “Strobelight” cuts, I left it out of consideration as one of the best of 2009.

In terms of popularity there is no doubt that 2009 was a banner year for Kaskade whose increased visibility put him at the top of the list in many minds as one of the best out there in the EDM scene. Kaskade also toured a LOT (although he is overdue a stop here) and was all over the web promoting himself and his gigs. He is currently in the studio now working on his next album and I for one know I will be buying it day of release. In the meantime here is his latest track a remix of the song “So Far Away” (featuring Haley). Enjoy!
