Kaskade launches new label Arkade
“I love music. I write music, produce music, remix music – go out every weekend and play music. Music is life.”
Kaskade opened up a Tumblr post today with the statement above, before letting the world know that he’d be launching a new label designed to satisfy the “dire need for new talent to be brought to the forefront.” He went on, stating that would be use the label to promote “one-of-a-kind” music.
Few seem more equipped to wear the label boss hat than the US-based legend who, in addition to producing and DJing, has also owned and operated a record store, pressed CDs and worked at both a recording studio and a record label.
The label’s name, Arkade, is based on Kaskade’s memories spending time at Dog Ear Records, an arcade-record shop hangout where the young producer spent many after-school hours digging through crates of vinyl. He hopes Arkade will serve a similar purpose in educating listeners on emerging talent.
A website has already been created for the label, and while there still isn’t much information on it, you can visit it here.
