Ryan Raddon, better known by his stage name Kaskade, is set to headline FallFest 2012, but the disc jockey made his name in the business long before getting the call to play for Mountaineer nation.
A professional at the top of his game, Kaskade is widely considered one of the world’s top DJs, and he has collaborated with vocal artists Rebecca and Fiona and world-renowned DJ Deadmau5 in the past.
In addition to these accomplisments, Kaskade is a resident DJ in Las Vegas’ Marquee Dayclub and Nightclub, located in Vegas’ posh new hotel, The Cosmopolitan.
For any DJ, such a residency marks a huge accomplishment, and Kaskade recognizes and appreciates this honor.
"It has been awesome, as it is one of the best clubs in the world," Kaskade said. "I have a show there once a month, and over the last two years I have been able to make it really special every time."
FallFest attendees can expect Kaskade to bring an equally special performance with him to the Mountainlair green and the DJ looks forward to performing for the University crowd.
"I always like going to new places to perform, and since I had never been to WVU, I am excited," Kaskade said. "I have only played a few University shows, but I love how into it the audiences get."
One of the defining characteristics of Kaskade is his remarkable ability to feel and emote his music to his fans, and he is known to get just as into his music as his crowds.
"It’s always cool to play my songs and see the connection that people have with the lyrics," Kaskade said. "I love seeing the connection there in person and how it affects the people."
In addition to always performing an intimate setlist, Kaskade is well known for his incredible light show.
Besides having state-of-the art lights and strobes, Kaskade times his light show to his music in an impressive, synchronized fashion.
This adds energy and intensity to his music, and the crowd will be able to dance and groove from the first to the last notes of his set.
While Kaskade may not be a household name, there is no doubt he is one of the world’s premier DJs and musicians.
The audience in attendance at FallFest is set to experience a stunning performance from the DJ, and this could turn into one of those shows you just cannot stop talking about for months afterwards.
For music fans looking to push their boundaries and experience an electric event, Kaskade’s FallFest performance is an absolute can’t-miss.
