Most people might not recognize the name Ryan Raddon, but they may recognize his stage name, Kaskade. In an article titled “The 25 DJs that rule the Earth,” Rolling Stone wrote, “Kaskade represents an intensely positive side of dance-music culture.”
Ryan Raddon is a husband, father, friend, DJ, and devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
He knows the importance of providing a safe and fun environment for the attendees of a rave. Raddon grew up near Chicago with a deep love for music and often found himself in the city at night at different shows and events with music. It excited him. He could be himself and not be judged.
Raddon told Deseret News, “I attended the shows as a kid sober, and I feel like music for me was an outlet and a way to be who I am. And I hope there are kids out there that have come to my shows and had that same experience.”
