Imagine you're lounging on a soft white beach, nothing but rolling aqua on the horizon. The breeze blows salty in your hair, the seagulls caw, and the taste of coconut and rum lingers on your lips. Someone sweet calls to you, and you follow them to the dance floor. The sun sets slowly into burnt orange and neon pink, then falls into deep blue and endless stars. 

Such is the mood Kaskade wants to set for you with a 15-track musical getaway, out today (Aug. 3). Destinations Tulum is the name of the game, and it's cheaper than flying to Mexico. It's a compilation out on the DJ and producer's Arkade record outlet, featuring dream-weaving tunes from Kaskade and some of his favorite music makers. 

"Arkade presents: Tulum is the first in a series of compilations about traveling the world and becoming emotionally attached to different locations," Kaskade says in an emailed statement. "I’ve developed personal relationships with the moods of different spots, and wanted to start with Tulum as it’s always lingered with me. I hope with the compilation...I can bring back the feeling of being in Tulum. A sensory experience of sitting on the beach and walking through the town."

The compilation plays smooth and silky, like a week-long vacation with nothing to drag you down. 

Destinations Tulum is out now, and you can jump into its carefree sonic stream below.
