It’s been a while since someone was able to properly reboot the Christmas carol go-tos. Mariah Carey is kind of the last to absolutely smash the holiday game and earn a new staple, though many a pop star has tried his or her hand. Surprisingly, the holiday season has remained relatively untouched by dance musicians, but Kaskade thinks he might be just the remixer for the job.
Remix may be a bad word, because he’s truly reinterpreting your favorite holiday classics into hot, modern takes. The full tracklist includes “Silent Night,” “Santa Baby” and some xmas deep cutes. We can get a first sense of his style with smoldering lead single “Deck The Halls.” Erika lights a cozy fire with her rich, smooth vocals, while Kaskade melts the snow with a sensual, red-hot house groove.
“I have always loved Christmas music,” Kaskade writes to fans on Twitter. “I grew up singing it with my family at Church which was the gateway to my High School Varsity Choir … I love the challenge of taking music that I have grown up with and producing it in a way that is new and modern.”
You’ve never heard fa-la-la-la-la like this before. It might just be a new instant classic for you and yours. Listen to Kaskade’s blazing “Deck The Halls” and read his full holiday message below.
