After multiple hit collaborations and taking over stages all over the world, Kaskade and deadmau5 have officially joined forces as Kx5.


Kaskade and deadmau5 have both created immense legacies for themselves in the dance music scene. From numerous hit tracks found within their vast discographies and shows that have left crowds stunned to fostering future talent in the scene on their labels, mau5trap and Arkade, it seems there’s nothing that can stop either of them. But when these two come together to produce music, some serious magic happens.

Turn back the clock to 2008 and you’ll find Kaskade’s beloved album Strobelight Seduction. Within its tracklist were the first two times that these two legends in the scene collaborated on “Move For Me” and “I Remember.” Both became immediate hits after being released and won over the hearts and minds of both fanbases who began to crave more. That craving for new music from Kaskade and deadmau5 was briefly filled in 2016 when the two released “Beneath With Me” with Skylar Grey, but the insatiable appetite from fans continued on.

In July 2021, the buzz of these two working together began once again during Kaskade’s massive show at SoFi Stadium when deadmau5 took the stage prior to the Arkade label boss and later on when a K5 flashed on the screen when he joined him on stage. Then, this past weekend, they both took to social media to tease fans that something special was brewing – and today brought forth the good word that they’re launching a collaborative project called Kx5.

Paired with the reveal of Kx5 is the news of the duo’s first track together under the alias, “Escape,” which will see them team up with Hayla and is due out on March 11. Those who tuned in to their Instagram Live earlier today were treated to a taste of what’s to come with the full release, along with the even bigger announcement that the project will debut at EDC Las Vegas this year.

Pre-save the debut Kx5 track, “Escape” (feat. Hayla), ahead of its release, and stay tuned for more from these two behemoths in the scene that’s still to come.
