Following three dynamically diverse singles, Grammy-nominated producer Kaskade today releases his debut EP, Reset, featuring the final track, “Miles To Go” in collaboration with Ella Vos, on Monstercat. Since December, Kaskade has launched a series of high-octane songs on the label, including “Flip Reset” with WILL K, “Solid Ground,” and “Closer,” all in partnership with the video game Rocket League. Accumulating over 15 million streams to date, each track has been a reflection of Kaskade’s poignant style, from anthemic, uplifting vocal tunes, to deep and hypnotic house records.
The Reset EP is both forward-thinking and nostalgic-feeling, with “Miles To Go” bringing a deeply personal and signature touch to the project. The single arrives on Monstercat Silk, the label’s third brand formed upon the recent acquisition of leading progressive/deep house label, Silk Music. “Miles To Go” will also be available beginning at 9am PT today in Rocket League as the main menu song.
Kaskade shares, “Working with Rocket League as the first artist to conceptualize and create music for an entire season of their game was such an honor, and I also knew I couldn’t mess it up…gamers take their music and sonic landscapes very seriously. So while I felt a little pressure, it was mostly just an amazing time to pull together songs that could really go along with the various moods that we go through while immersed in a game like Rocket League. They’re finally all getting a release together on the ‘Reset’ EP which will include my final song, “Miles to Go” with Ella Vos, so the entire experience can be found in one place.”
Ella Vos adds, “Underneath the uplifting good vibes of “Miles to Go” is a message to “keep going”. The work in our relationships with each other and the world are never finished; we can always become better. I’m honored to work with Kaskade and Rocket League and I hope this song inspires hope and unity!”
Ushering in their music-themed Season 2, Rocket League partnered with Kaskade to be the first artist to align with an entire season of the game. The producer has since connected with new global audiences across the gaming space, some of whom are interacting with and listening to his music for the first time. Kaskade hosting the Rocket League Radio takeover on Fortnite’s Radio Yonder, and participating in Team Liquid’s recent Rocket League showmatch, alongside top pro esports players and dance music artists, is a testament to the authentic synergy that music and gaming shares.
Over the last three years, Monstercat has provided the soundtrack to Rocket League with more than 100 songs from world-renowned artists, earning 550 million streams across platforms, a 35k-follower Spotify playlist with tracks added monthly, and popular compilation albums including an exclusive vinyl offering. Leading the charge in bridging music and gaming, Monstercat has created opportunities for artists to build long-term, dedicated fanbases within Rocket League and beyond. The robust strategy of releasing multiple singles, EPs, and curated content in-game, fully immerses each artist’s unique brand and creates an organic connection with their music.
