From remixes for Billboard Top Dance Artist, Colette and Mark Farina, under the radar / slept on remixes for the likes of Rithma, Naked Music NYC, J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science and more, The Om Remixes showcases his early talent for taking original and unfamiliar pieces, and turning out hits.

Kaskade the Om Remixes drops October 7th

On October 7th. Om is releasing a compilation of hits from sexy techno mix master Kaskade. ‘Kaskade the Om Remixes’ features a rare collection of out of print remixes, never before released on CD. ‘Kaskade the Om Remixes’ showcases the early years of Kaskade’s hit making career with Om records. The first track on the album is Kaskade’s extended remix of Colette’s hit ‘Hypnotized’. This high energy track, with a slow and soulful groovy undercurrent kept booties shakin’ all the way to the #1 spot on the Billboard dance chart, and sets the tone as the first track for the entire 12 track collection. I’m also really feelin’ the love on Track 11, which features Kaskade’s remix of Rithma’s track Builder’. Let’s just say the Kaskade wasn’t lying when he titled this track the ’Let’s Make Out Mix’. With its slow and sexy body rockin’ feel, this song shows why Kaskade’s hits have been on high demand from the dance floor, to the tops of the charts, to soundtracks like the new Sex and the City movie. If you are like me, and frequently host sensual techno dance parties in your basement, then having access to these rare and never before released tracks on ‘Kaskade the Om Remixes’ will be sure to enhance your music library, and your social life.
