Kaskade To Play Pre-NYE Party at HQ Nightclub

The electronic dance music trailblazer, Kaskade, will bring his signature sound when he takes over HQ Nightclub at Revel in Atlantic City for what is sure to be a spectacular debut as he helps close out 2012 with a special pre-NYE set on Sunday, December 30.

Born Ryan Raddon, The New York Times called him "the new face of electronic dance music" and that could suit him well. However, the American DJ has been in the scene for more than 10 years. In that time, he has built a name for himself as an innovator of the electronic dance music scene as fans know it today and helped to lay the groundwork for a titanic musical and cultural shift: a post-rock EDM revolution that has captured the imagination of a new generation of music lovers across North America.
