Fire & Ice
Label: Ultra Records
Salt Lake City's Kaskade proves why he's one of the biggest names in American dance music with Fire & Ice, a double-length album of crossover house anthems, flash-bang electro and downbeat pop. The first disc highlights up-tempo club tracks, while the second reworks the same songs into slow-burning bedroom grooves; in addition to vocalists like Mindy Gledhill and Neon Trees, guest producers Skrillex, Dada Life and Inpetto get in on the action. If you were looking for the missing link between Deadmau5 and The Postal Service, here it is.
