After this, he moved to Salt Lake City and enrolled in the University of Utah, obtaining a degree in Communications. While at Utah, he also owned a record store called Mechanized Records.
With the emergence of house into the world of dance music in the ’90s, Kaskade found his niche and went on to establish his reputation as a local club DJ.

During this time, he also began working on his own music, releasing his first single, “What I Say” in 2001. He then signed a three-album contract with Om Records, releasing his debut album, “It’s You, It’s Me” in 2003, which put him on the map.

He went on to release the albums “Dynasty” in 2010, and then “Fire & Ice” in 2011 and “Atmosphere” in 2013, scoring numerous hits and significantly improving his status in the world of dance music, and his wealth.
