American DJ extraordinaire Kaskade has teamed up with singer-songwriter Phoebe Ryan and up-and-coming producer LöKii for the brand-new track. “Almost Back”—and this one goes off when the volume’s cranked up.
The track opens with a laid-back, mid-tempo vibe. “Doing alright / I was all in / I was walking in a straight line,” Ryan breathes wistfully. But by the time the chorus hits, the whole energy shifts into top gear—and then comes down again in time for the break. The track rises and falls like a roller coaster, which is fitting, considering the lyrics tell the story of an up-and-down relationship.
It’s a solid take on current EDM trends, elevated to the top of the class by the killer production and vocals. But when you think about how many great tracks Kaskade’s dropped over the years, that shouldn’t surprise anyone.
