TRACK NAME: Wide Awake
ARTIST(S): Katy Perry
GENRE(S): Progressive House
RELEASE DATE: Unknown
American superstar DJ and producer Kaskade, known for countless original progressive tracks featuring beautiful vocals from various artists like Skylar Grey and Haley Gibby, as well as having one of the largest stage presences in the industry, is back with another massive track. Getting the Kaskade touch-up this time is the Katy Perry track Wide Awake, to which we also recently heard a remix by Dutch producer Dyro. Kaskade’s radio edit of Wide Awake is a little bit different than what we are used to hearing from him; while remaining mostly progressive in style as well as with the build-up of Katy Perry’s amazing vocals, there are some dubstep elements to the fast-paced track. Although Kaskade has often put out remixes to other progressive house and electro house producers’ tracks, it is only so often that we get to hear club remixes from him of regular pop songs, as also heard with his amazing remixes to Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend and Skylar Grey’s Invisible. Keep an ear out for more Kaskade, as we have yet to see him share more of his amazing bootlegs as well from this year’s Ultra Music Festival and Coachella.
Have a listen to Kaskade’s radio edit of Katy Perry’s Wide Awake, and keep an eye out for him this summer during his Freaks Of Nature Tour in the US!
