I missed out on this last year and was terribly upset about it in spite of having still caught him three times last year (Ultra in Miami, VELD in Toronto, and New City Gas in Montreal). I probably shouldn’t be so selfish, but I heard his Redux tour on Soundcloud and it was exactly the Kaskade I had heard and knew about from before.
Redux isn’t about Animals & Turn Me Down- it’s about It’s You It’s Me, and I couldn’t be more excited.
A year ago, I commemorated the ten-year anniversary of my album, “It’s You, It’s Me” by dreaming big of a stripped-down possibility called Redux. The inspiration for Redux was simplicity. My intention: to play small clubs, and for all who participated to be taken back a decade, when it was all…
One of my bragging rights is having been at ASOT600Miami during Ultra 2013. It’s one of those events that solidified trance in my books, and it was definitely worth losing my 8gb memory card over (hey security guard who confiscated it, I see you).
BUT, after learning Armin played as GAIA tonight I can’t help but feel jealous that I wasn’t there for this. Who knows when he’ll play as GAIA again? Maybe never? Ugh.
If like me you were unfortunately unable to be there or watch the livestream, here you go.
