Kaskade is giving fans something to look forward to in quarantine with the announcement of his “Road Trip” tour, where he will host drive-in style concerts in four different California locations. Kaskade will hit Anaheim on Halloween weekend, followed by Pleasanton, Ventura, and Del Mar in November. For a chance at early signup, visit kaskademusic.com to get access to tickets before they go on sale to the general public on October 15. The tour announcement comes as the next installment of Kaskade’s quarantine-themed concepts, such as earlier album “Arkade Destinations: Living Room” and the first-ever DJ performance at the Grand Canyon. Check out what Kaskade is looking forward to about the “Road Trip” tour below:
“I’m not unique in feeling restless and the need to get out has become more than an itch, it’s full-on. So knowing that I have a lot of West Coast massive fans feeling the same way, I’ve decided to move the party from our living rooms to the drive-in. It’s safe, and it’ll give us all a way to get up and get down from the safety of our cars. Things aren’t “normal” yet and this is a new experience, but I’m not mad at that. I’m looking forward to playing music and seeing those faces, whether there is a windshield between us or not. It’s still a connection and that’s what I’m here for.” – Kaskade
As a household name in electronic music for nearly two decades, Kaskade needs no introduction. His list of achievements is a mile long: 11 studio albums, 7 GRAMMY nominations, the first solo electronic dance artist to sell out both Navy Pier in Chicago and the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the first DJ to ever secure a Las Vegas residency, and the first electronic artist to headline Coachella. Less tangible but even more important has been his influence on dance music tastes and culture for generations of listeners. Often Kaskade is one of the artists who introduced now-veteran listeners to the genre, and such fans are usually fans for life. In 2019, he worked with multi-award winner Meghan Trainor on “With You” and Gorgon City on “Go Slow,” among solo releases, such as “My Light,” “Come On,” and official remixes for the likes of Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwen Stefani earlier. Kaskade continues what has become a nostalgic tradition for many dance music veterans and a cherished experience for new listeners. Stay tuned for more news from Kaskade in 2020.

Ainonow’s Debut EP ‘Exile’ Combines Dark & Minimal DnB
A groundbreaking new artist emerges as rising dark, minimal DnB producer Ainonow makes his debut with the release of his forward-thinking ‘Exile’ EP. Serving as the launch point for his induction into the New England-based Goop Troop Collective, this innovative project is set to redefine the boundaries of the Bass music genre and captivate listeners with its unique sonic journey.
“My message is simple and it’s connected with why I make art. My hope is that listening to my music is a cathartic experience for my listeners and a way for them to feel seen and understood. I want it to connect them emotionally to their darker feelings and realize that it’s okay to feel these emotions, it’s part of being human. I also want it to act as a conduit so that they can channel this energy into something helpful, comforting, and somewhat healing.” — Ainonow
Ainonow’s ‘Exile’ EP is a scintillating blend of his broad range of influences and techniques, combining cutting-edge production techniques with a deep understanding of sound design. His debut offering explores uncharted territories, crafting aural landscapes that push the envelope of production and experimentation. Seamlessly blending elements from various electronic music genres including, but not limited to, Drum and Bass, Halftime, Wonky, Trap, UK Bass, Glitch, IDM, Post-Industrial, Hip-Hop & Rap, ‘Exile’ is sure to give listeners and new fans an unparalleled auditory experience.
Kyle Kroeck is at the helm of the enigmatic music project Ainonow. His musical journey began playing the viola in an orchestra at the age of nine, where he began to fall in love with music. However, the classical world alone was not enough to satisfy his musical curiosity. Swirling in and out of bands while playing bass guitar, he experimented with different styles until eventually discovering underground electronic music and Hip-Hop. Inspired by the hypnotic beats and hard-hitting Bass of these genres, he dove into electronic music production and the infinite timbres permitted by this new approach to music creation.
With such a diverse background and range of influences, Ainonow’s tracks traverse a broad spectrum of sonic landscapes. Combining elements of dark and heavy DnB, broken beat halftime, and experimental Bass music, he takes his listeners on a musical journey soaked in organic textures. As one of the most forward-thinking, rising artists in the world of underground electronic music, Ainonow’s music speaks to the power of experimentation and the limitless possibilities of creative expression.

R3HAB & Pelican Join Forces For Latin-Inspired EDM Cut “Loca Loca”
Multifaceted producer R3HAB teams up with European duo Pelican for their new track “Loca Loca,” a multi-lingual party anthem that will heat up any room and any radio airwave, even as some parts of the world are cooling off. This EDM gem gives new life to Fly Project’s 2013 hit, fusing groovy, downtempo beats and trumpet instrumentals with sultry, soulful Spanish lyrics.
Even if winter is descending where you live, “Loca Loca” will transport you to a Latin paradise where it’s always summer and la fiesta never ends. The track follows R3HAB’s recent hot streak of “Rock My Body” ft. INNA, which has now amassed over 2.5B radio impressions and 115M+ streams, “Waterfall” with Michael Schulte, which is now #2 on German radio, as well as R3HAB’s collaboration with Tiësto – “Run Free (Countdown).”
On the other hand, Pelican is known for their breakthrough hits “Summer of 19” from 2021 and “The Bad Touch” with Tribbs from 2022. In addition to that, the duo wrote music for other artists, amassing multiple gold and platinum certifications and having their song “Solo” by Blanka featured at Eurovision 2023’s main contest.
“When the weather cools down, it’s my responsibility to turn up the heat. Pelican and I are pleased to share “Loca Loca,” a nostalgic release bringing back memories of 2010’s summer nights. “Loca Loca” is an emotional Latin-inspired dance track that puts a fresh spin on the catchy hook of Fly Project’s ‘Toca Toca’ as it hits its 10-year anniversary. As the nights get cooler, I hope this tropical sound and colorful energy provides a warm escape.” — R3HAB
“We’re thrilled to announce our new song “Loca Loca.” This is the biggest project of our career so far and we are honored to have this collab with R3HAB. This song holds a special place in our hearts, and we’re incredibly proud to share this with all of you. Stay tuned!” — Pelican
