After months of anticipation, we are now able to dive into what is without a doubt one of the most anticipated album releases of the year. Released on Ultra Music, Kaskade‘s Atmosphere is his eighth studio album, and may come as a surprise to some listeners who aren’t familiar with the veteran’s early beginnings. Those who just know him as the big room guru may be left waiting for a drop, but for those of us who have been jamming along since‘It’s You, It’s Me’ will rejoice, as several tunes on the record dive into what Kaskade did best: his own personal take on deep, soulful house.
"I think it has a little bit of everything; it’s very diverse… If I was to squash Fire & Ice into a single rather than a double album, it might have sounded like this.” The album is arguably his his most honest, emotional and, ultimately, personal album to date. Each track is an honest and personal construction and it clearly reflects in the music; emotion after emotion, Atmosphere has the power to bring tears, smiles and goosebumps through every style, to every fan. We wouldn’t expect anything less from the don, though, with 8 albums, countless shows and an infinite number of unforgettable moments spanning more than ten years. I’m not going to run through a track-by-track review of the record; I’ll let the music speak for itself.
Out now on iTunes.
