"Internationally renowned DJ/Producer/Remixer KASKADE has taken the world of electronic music by storm, and shows no signs of slowing down. The proof came in 2010 when "Dynasty," Kaskade's sixth album, climbed to #5 on the iTunes Charts for all genres.
"Dynasty" is the follow-up release to the massively successful "Strobelite Seduction," which garnered four global hit singles and was #1 on iTunes Dance for six weeks. With consistent and high music chart placement (topping Billboard Hot Dance Airplay, iTunes Dance, BBC Radio, and "most played record" on Sirius Dance Radio in 2009) and various TV and film licensing placements ("Sex and the City" movie and soundtrack, "Devil Wears Prada," and "Date Night" with Steve Carrell and Tina Fey), Kaskade's sound still holds authentic to the underground, generating some of the biggest club anthems year."
Julius Papp is one whose dedication to music has propelled his career as a producer and DJ in the electronic music scene. His dance music roots lie in Disco of the 70's and New Wave of the 80's. Presently living in San Francisco, he was born and raised in Montreal, Canada, and got tuned into dance music through the city's flourishing club scene and diverse radio broadcasts. He started collecting vinyl records in the mid 70's and took to the turntables in 1985, scoring his first major club gig two years later.
Hearing the non-stop flow of music and observing the booth where the DJ seamlessly blended each selection were early influences for Julius. Later influences included reading about parties that were piloted by talented music programmers that even today, influence the youngest of aspiring DJ's - legends like David Mancuso at The Loft & Larry Levan at the Paradise Garage in New York City to Frankie Knuckles at The Warehouse in Chicago and Tony Humphries' weekly at Zanzibar in New Jersey. Always inspired by the music listed in those articles, Julius would shop for those titles that would later become classics, worshipped by their discerning audiences. To this day, his goal is to keep expanding his foundation in music by being open-minded and eclectic in absorbing the music that truly touches him.
That open-minded attitude is what Julius uses to fine-tune his musical palette, which gives him a dominant sound that exudes a deep and soulful perspective. That dominant sound is House Music – which to him, is about an uplifting positive message. People coming together in unity, with no barriers or restrictions, but rather, with tolerance and the spirit of music, unifying everyone on the dance-floor. That being said, he blends various musical styles together -including Soul, Latin, Afro, Disco, Jazz and Electronic sounds with such fluidity, that it is difficult at times to put a defining stamp on his sound. Contributing to that is his willingness to take a chance. He always tries to push the envelope by introducing music that deserves exposure, taking his audience on a musical journey with various mood and energy changes.
Not content to limiting his ambitions in the DJ booth, Julius began producing music in 1994. The studio was another outlet for Julius' creative ideas to flow. His first release was a down-tempo project on the Acid Jazz tip. He also drew attention as part of the jazz and funk scene in San Francisco via the Mushroom Jazz parties alongside resident Mark Farina.
As Julius' production catalogue grew, so did the amount of labels he released music on including – long tenured labels like Nervous Records (NYC), King ST (NYC), Large Music (Chicago) and OM (SF), to signings on Soulfuric Recordings (FL) and Kenny Dope's "Dope Wax" (NYC) label, as well as Bob Sinclar's own
Yellow Productions in Paris.
He also ventured into the label arena with his own "NeoDisco Music" imprint. Named after the sound that continues to inspire him – the label offers him an alternate outlet to release his own productions.
As a veteran in the club scene, Julius has refined a style of dance music that has taken him beyond the boundaries of San Francisco to global praise and recognition. Being nominated as "Most Innovative Producer" at the 2004 House Music Awards is a perfect example of that. Putting him in the company of other nominated producers like, Joey Negro, Osunlade, DJ Gregory, DJ Spinna and Ben Watt was an absolute honor for him.
In January, 2012, Julius's collaboration with Lisa Shaw entitled "Way Back" (DJ Smash Brooklyn Tech Remix), was featured on the CBS crime drama, CSI: Miami.
