The record was written and released as playable in-game music for Rocket League’s ongoing second season.
Kaskade‘s influence is one of the furthest-reaching in electronic music, as the prolific artist has continuously released high-caliber tracks that impress both fans and critics alike. His latest endeavor sees him delivering a series of off-the-rails singles via Monstercat Silk, in partnership with Rocket League. Today, those tunes have been packaged as an EP called Reset.
Kaskade is the first artist to curate a release that coincides with Rocket League‘s ongoing second season. “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,” he said in a press release.
Reset captures the essence of Kaskade’s timeless sound while simultaneously communicating Rocket League‘s vision. Through each of its four tracks, the EP delivers a myriad of varying energy that blends effortlessly with the heart-pounding in-game experience. From intoxicating house rhythms to melodic vocal moments, Reset is one of Kaskade’s strongest releases to date.
“Miles To Go,” the last single from the EP, perfectly ties a bow on the entire experience. Conveying hopefulness, the song harkens to long, late-night drives as the sun sets in the distance. Ella Vos lends her delicate vocals, which Kaskade alchemized with subdued guitar riffs and crisp percussive elements.
