After being awarded for the first time in 2011, Kaskade has once again been named America’s Best DJ by DJ Times magazine and Pioneer DJ. Most of the votes were cast via the America’s Best DJ website; however, fans were also given the opportunity to vote in person at more than 20 club and festival events, including EDC Vegas, Movement Festival, and Global Dance Festival.
Having just released his eighth studio album, Atmosphere, on Tuesday and surpassing artists such as Diplo, Skrillex, and Porter Robinson, this is a huge honor for Kaskade (Ryan Raddon). He said, "Words can't do justice to how completely grateful I am to receive this honor for a second time. I am constantly in awe of the love, encouragement and energy I receive from my fan-base, which has continued to inspire and motivate me throughout my career. I feel connected to them in such a real way and their support is something that keeps rocking my world. I couldn't do this without them."
Raddon will be presented with a personalized, gold-plated Pioneer DJM-900nexus mixer at the ABDJ Award Ceremony/Closing Party at Marquee Nightclub, Las Vegas, on October 13th.
