As part of their Kx5 project, Kaskade and deadmau5 have brought drum & bass label RAM Records’ Tall Order for a euphoric remix of their original tune.
The first time Kaskade and deadmau5 worked together was when they first partnered on their 2008 smash ‘I Remember,’ which was heralded by The Rolling Stones as one of the top 100 dance music tracks of all time. Fourteen years later, the duo has formalized their occasional collaborations and long-running friendship into an official project, Kx5.
This collaboration has now resulted in a self-titled album that carries on the genre-defining spirit of their early work with the additional excellence that comes from a decade and a half of studio and onstage experience, individually. The duo’s first performance at Electric Daisy Carnival in May 2022 packed out the Circuit Grounds stage beyond capacity, while the pair’s December 2022 headlining gig at the iconic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum smashed records.

For their latest offering, electronic music titans Kx5 and their respective labels Arkade and mau5trap have teamed with leading drum & bass platform RAM Records for the release of ‘Escape,’ and creating the drum & bass confection is Welsh producer and RAM rising star, Tall Order.
After dropping demos over to RAM Records at the start of 2022, Tall Order received his first standalone release on the imprint, and it signified a massive step in the career of an already hotly-anticipated artist. Then followed a string of releases that have now made the Welshman a drum & bass force to be reckoned with.
“I’m incredibly excited to announce my remix of Kx5 Ft. Hayla’s ‘Escape,’” shares Tall Order who has been teasing the remix out in his sets at his latest gigs. “I’ve been getting so many messages about this one so pleased to get it out there. It’s a real pinch yourself moment. Thanks so much to mau5trap x RAM x Arkade for making it happen!”
An exhilarating version, it infuses Kx5’s production with pulsating basslines, intricate drum patterns and high-tempo beats. The remix maintains vocalist Hayla’s catchy hook and uplifting atmosphere of the original but adds a new layer of intensity that is characteristic of the genre. With its rapid-fire breaks, rolling bass drops, and infectious groove, Tall Order’s rendition takes the listener out for an electrifying dancefloor experience.
