If you like electronic music and you like to dance, then you should like this. German musicians Phace (Florian Harres) and Misanthrop (Michael Braeuninger) are the latest and greatest in drum and bass // dub step artists. They present stuff that’s a lot less cheesy than what you get from artists like Skrillex overall.
This Skrillex jam that won a Grammy is tolerable though…
Port Washington, N.Y.–The votes have all been counted and it’s official–DJ Times magazine and Pioneer DJ are proud to announce that Kaskade has been voted America’s Best DJ for 2011.
The talented Los Angeles-based jock will be honored October 9 in Las Vegas for the ABDJ Closing Party, which will include a press reception at Marquee. After being presented with his trophy–a special Gold-Plated Pioneer mixer–Kaskade will take to the decks for the wildest Sunday night party in Vegas.
“I am really proud to be named America’s Best DJ. When I look at the Top 100 list, there are so many talented people on there, people that I have looked up to for years. So, to be awarded this title amongst such an awesome group is a great feeling. I really want to thank all my fans for voting and their continued support.” — Kaskade (aka Ryan Raddon)
While most of the votes were cast online at the America’s Best DJ website, the America’s Best DJ Summer Tour Presented by Pioneer DJ supported the contest by allowing fans to vote in-person at 20+ club and festival events.
“Pioneer congratulates all the DJs nominated for America’s Best DJ, and we would like to send a special congratulations to Kaskade, this year’s winner. Kaskade is a true representation of the best that the DJ world has to offer. A pure musical talent, Kaskade’s a well-rounded producer, remixer, and exciting DJ/performer, not mention one of the nicest guys we’ve met,” – David “Davey Dave” Arevalo. Sr. Manager – Marketing / Artist Relations Pioneer Electronics (USA), Inc.
Additionally, a lucky ABDJ voter (plus a guest) will be flown to Vegas for the festivities. Stay tuned – we’ll announce our Grand Prize winner very soon!
