Deadmau5 and Kaskade are excited to announce they have officially joined forces to form a unique collaborative union Kx5. The project makes its formal debut March 11 with the release of “Escape (feat. Hayla),” a brand new single featuring rising British singer-songwriter Hayla and will make its live debut in May at EDC Las Vegas.
To listen to a snippet of “Escape (feat. Hayla)” go
Kx5 is a collaboration over a decade and a half in the making. deadmau5 and Kaskade effectively changed the electronic music landscape when they paired together for 2008’s slow-burning “I Remember” and the influence of their follow up “Move For Me” cemented their influence as the standard. Both tracks peaked at No. 1 within a week of one another on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart. The GRAMMY-nominated artists’ paths crossed again on 2016’s ominous “Beneath with Me” featuring Skylar Grey.
In July 2021, Kaskade made history as the first public concert performed at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium. The sold-out show featured a surprise set by deadmau5 and had the two artists reuniting again for a set to close the show. As Kx5, deadmau5 and Kaskade are primed to write their own history.
“Escape (feat. Hayla)” will be jointly released under deadmau5 and Kaskade’s respective labels, mau5trap and Arkade on March 11. Pre-save now HERE.
