"I have always been a big fan of Robert Smith, but lately I have really been feeling what Brandon Flowers from the Killers is doing," Raddon tells Spinner.
In a landscape where music iscan be transferred around the globe in mere minutes, which could be advantageous to say the least, Raddon has had his challenges as a producer with it, too. "Nobody really wants to buy music anymore," he says. "They prefer to steal it."
The exposure of easy access can also breed fanbases in places that artists might not be able to reach traditionally. "It's about getting more people exposed to the sound," Raddon says. "I don't feel that I really have to do much -- just continue what I am doing. There are a lot more people who would love the music. It's just finding out how to expose them to it. Nirvana did not have to change their sound.. People just discovered 'grunge.' I feel like dance is the same way."
Using live instrumentation about half the time on this latest record, 'Strobelight Seduction,' Raddon plans to add live elements to his performance. "I am sure one day it will evolve into a live show for sure," he asserts. "Rarely do I see live electronic acts that impress. In fact, outside of Daft Punk, nothing has really been done that is cool. And the Daft Punk show was more about a visual stimulation more than anything."
'Strobelight Seduction' is out now. Meanwhile, Kaskade put together an exclusive mix for Spinner, with tracks ranging from electronic pioneers Kraftwerk to House icon Lil Louis.
