Never a Dull "Moment",
This review is from: In The Moment (Audio CD)
"In the Moment" is the solid album from Chicao-born/San Francisco-based DJ Kaskade (born Ryan Raddon). It manages to be diverse without being too eclectic, giving the listener an appealing mix of laid back house and nu soul. My first exposure to the work of Kaskade was a track of his featured on one of the Hed Kandi compilations: "Safe." I took a mental note to look out for this guy if I came across one of his full-length CDs, so when I found "In the Moment" in the dance section of a record shop, I knew I had to get it. I'm glad I did. Breezy, effortless house excursions like "I Like the Way" and "Move" are complimented by mid-tempo jams like "Honesty" (a jazzy number that sounds like the distant cousin of an Incognito song) and "Strum." "In the Moment" is a worthwhile listen thanks to its diverse range of grooves that will likely be welcomed by mature dance listeners who are familiar with the Naked Music, Hed Kandi, and Bargrooves collections.
