The motivated minds behind Brown & White Productions continue to impress us. If they're not bringing one fabulous, make-your-ass-move act to St. Louis, they're bringing five: Within the next month alone, George Acosta, Marques Wyatt, John Digweed and MSTRKRFT, and Satoshi Tomiie are scheduled. Oh, you want more? Well, Kaskade kicks off these weeks of greatness when he comes to town to support Love Mysterious, his third artist album. This San Fran-based DJ/producer has the mystical ability to set the perfect mood and warm you from the inside out; when his luscious tracks hit your ears, winter will be but a distant memory. In fact, Kaskade is so powerful these days that his mere presence coaxes the grouchiest house-music-is-dead naysayer from the doldrums and plops that individual directly onto the happiest, sunniest dance floor. How does Kaskade do it? Is it the soothing, loving vocals on his tracks? Or the sexy beats that gently thump-thump like the very rhythm of your heart? Yeah, friend, it's all that and more. C'mon and hear the love.
