In this week’s #TBT, Kaskade invokes everyone to connect with the melodic vocals and lyrics of “Atmosphere”.


Kaskade has progressively connected concertgoers on so many levels by creating such magical music, using the most mesmerizing melodies and vocals to unite everyone. I may be biased since Ryan is the artist that got me into the scene and helped me overcome some challenges in my life, but with songs like Atmosphere” how can you not agree that his music is uplifting?

In this track, Kaskade showcases amazing lyrics that are easy to sing along to and beautiful piano notes leading into the main part of the track. Every time I hear Kaskade play this track, it fosters love and acceptance. The lyrics are so powerful! I have always connected to this song on so many levels, especially once I found my family within the rave community. “Atmosphere” has helped me through some of my harder times in life.

When “Atmosphere” was released in September 2013, it was the first time we heard Kaskade provide his own vocals. When first I discovered this, I was in awe. Ryan has some of the most melodic voices on earth, and his lyrics connect with many people on a very deep level. It’s almost calming in a way. In an interview with MTV News, Kaskade says that “This album is more about me and the songs that I’ve written, instead of collaborating with people.”

Clearly, Kaskade is a multi-talented and down to earth person with some of the most uplifting and positive music out there. He will always have a special place in my heart because of his music like “Atmosphere.”

Kaskade – Atmosphere – Lyrics:

When I was young I would stand alone
With visions of worlds that were all my own
The lights in the sky weren’t that far away
Living in the vastness of outer space
All my life I’ve been a star
Holding a light up in the dark
While I try to keep clear
Of all the waves in your atmosphere
All my life I’ve been a star
Holding a light up in the dark
While I try to keep clear
Of all the waves in your atmosphere
Of all the waves in your atmosphere
Of all the waves in your atmosphere
When I was young I could hear the sound
A melody pure and a rhythm loud
Oh, this sound took me away
Carried through the vastness of outer space
All my life I’ve been a star
Holding a light up in the dark
While I try to keep clear
Of all the waves in your atmosphere
All my life I’ve been a star
Holding a light up in the dark
While I try to keep clear
Of all the waves in your atmosphere
Of all the waves in your atmosphere
Of all the waves in your atmosphere
Of all the waves in your atmosphere
Of all the waves in your atmosphere
Of all the waves in your atmosphere

After serving in the military for eight years and attending Florida International University in Miami, I attended my first EDM concert in 2012. The DJ I saw was Kaskade and I fell in love with the scene immediately. Since joining the EDM community in 2012, I have been to several different music festivals which include: Ultra Miami, EDC Las Vegas, EDC Orlando, TomorrowWorld, Mysteryland, Electric Forest and many others. I have also been to several shows but prefer music festivals overall. Some of my favorite DJs include: Deadmau5, Kaskade, Rabbit in the Moon, and many others. EDM has always had a place in my heart and it actually came into my life when I really needed it, you could say it saved my life.
