Kaskade at Staples Center

July 26, 2012

MUSIC

Over nine albums, Ryan Raddon's alias Kaskade has shifted from orthodox house- and trance-inspired tracks into blown-out populist anthems rooted in melody and sultry chorus hooks, often performed by female guest vocalists. Other producers like David Guetta have introduced dance sounds and structures into Top 40 pop, but Kaskade's latest double-album set "Fire & Ice" proved his potential to take the genre to mainstream listeners without changing its fundamental aesthetics. Staples Center, 1111 S. Figueroa Ave., L.A. 7:30 p.m. Fri., $20-$65. staplescenter.com.
