deadmau5 and Kaskade officially join forces to form a unique collaborative union Kx5, marking their debut with the single “Escape” featuring rising British singer-songwriter Hayla. “Escape”–an aspirational love song–is released jointly under deadmau5 and Kaskade’s respective labels, mau5trap and Arkade.
Beginning with stripped-back piano underscoring Hayla’s delicate vocal, “Escape” soon swells into a pulsating electronic soundscape—a testament to the meticulous, multi-layered production that deadmau5 and Kaskade have built their reputations on. The track really takes flight on the anthemic chorus. “What if I escape with you?” Hayla belts over shiny synths. “Is it real, is it just a fantasy? ‘Cause the unknown, the unknown is pulling me.”
Look for Kx5 to make its live performance debut at EDC Las Vegas this May!!!
