Kaskade Is Mormon?! And Other Surprising Facts


Peace, love, unity, and respect are words that ravers throw around a lot. But rarely do you meet a partier who steadfastly lives by that code, let alone a producer, like Kaskade, whose music so honestly captures the PLUR spirit.

He's quickly become one of the most beloved producer-DJs on the EDM scene. And lately, he's risen to the absolute pinnacle of his career, setting out on a nationwide arena tour that'll arrive at the American Airlines Arena on Saturday, September 14.

Still, though, he remains humble, keeping his ego in check and his message as clear and purposeful as ever.

How do we know he's really about that PLUR life? Well, this quick background check is pretty convincing.

He Was Born Ryan Raddon, February 25, 1971
Kaskade was born in Evanston, Illinois, in '71. So if you hurry and do the math, you'll find he's now 42 years old. With his boyish mug, you'd never guess the years of experience this bro is packing. But he'd already been all around the world and back before he even found footing as a professional DJ. In fact, he started honing his spin skills all the way back in 1989, so that's more than 20 years of real jockey cred. No wonder he's filling arenas.

I remember going to see him in 2006 during WMC for free at FYE on South Beach when he had just released "Love Mysterious". He spun for a group of 15-20 people at most. Super humble and down to earth when I spoke to him after. I'm glad he's remained in that same mind state even with all his much deserved success.
