Get this: house legend Kaskade has ditched the big labels — including Ultra Records — to create his very own: Arkade.  After working for decades in the industry, the star hopes to the create an outlet specifically for the discovery of new artists, fostering new talent and bringing something different to the forefront of the big stage.

The first selection that Kaskade released via Arkade has been brought to you by newly signed talent Fairchild, titled ‘I Just Want You’. With other tracks including ‘A Little More’ by Kaskade himself in collaboration with John Dahlback and Sana, ‘Summer Nights’ by Kaskade and The Brocks, Arkade has a fresh start to what just might become the next big thing.

With an authentic genuine note, Kaskade stresses his passion for music and the invention of Arkade:

“I love music.

I write music, produce music, remix music – go out every weekend and play music.

Music is life.

We all conjure up portions of memories that influence who we are.  As a kid much of my free time was spent skateboarding and hanging out at Dog Ear Records. It was a combination arcade and record shop; everything I needed under one roof. If they served hot dogs I probably would still be there. I would go after school and dig through the crates of vinyl and try to master the art of Galaga.

Combining things I love.

I have worked at a record store and later on owned and operated a record store. I have worked at a studio and at a record label. I have pressed CD’s and sold mix tapes; even slung vinyl out of the trunk of my car.

Music has always been my passion.

Arkade is my new label. There is an abundance of raw talent out there, now more than ever. There is also a dire need for new talent to be brought to the forefront. Arkade is here to do that, to promote one kind of music.

Music that I love.”
