Katy Perry – “Wide Awake” (Kaskade Remix)
Well this track has certainly been polarizing since it dropped on Soundcloud a couple of days ago. “Too poppy”, some say. “WTF, is this drum ‘n’ bass?”, ask others (kinda). Others, like this guy right here, have been swooning over this feel-good track, impressed with Kaskade‘s courage to stray from his heavy house comfort zone.
I really do love stuff like this. Call me soft all you want, but it just sounds good. Isn’t that all that matters? Put that garbage music elitist brain of your aside for a second! Katy Perry‘s voice is pretty perfect for the genre. And Kaskade, showing that he knows not the boundaries of the dreaded genre, goes borderline drum n’ bass here! You have to respect an established producer taking on the challenge of a new sound. Right? I think so.
Let me know what you think of this one! What side are you on?
