Also, one of the few artists that produce music videos shot in clubs by people old enough to be in clubs.
'Evacuate the dance floor', 'Everytime we touch' & 'Pyromania' are examples of musical medicine to cure ears from the trash that this decade has to offer.
Cascada is a Club/Trance project from Germany. The group consists of Natalie Horler and Yanou and DJ Manian (although Natalie does work with other producers/dj's). Their biggest chart hit to date was "Everytime we touch" (which soonafter had many remixes), which was a huge hit in both the underground trance scene and the commercial scene.
The name Cascada came about due to copyright issues. The project were origionally named "Cascade", however soon after legal action was threatened by a band of the same name, they changed the name to "Cascada". Contrary to popular belief, Cascada is a project, not Natalie Horler herself.
Natalie Horler (the vocalist/producer/visual representative of Cascada) was born in Bonn, Germany to English parents and considers herself more English than German.
Cascada can go under the genres of Trance, Commercial Trance, Club, Pop, Eurotrance, Dance, and Techno. Although lacking in origionality, Cascada continue to make a big impression on the American charts with their Eurobeat style.
she does have some good music though
(dont confuse her music for techno music...just putting it out there)
She has the best techno music out there
Todd: Um she sings euro-trance music, not techno music, and she's not really the best
First, her genre would be classified as "Euro-Dance," or, better yet, as Cheese. Because really, when you sit there and play "Everytime We Touch" and scream "I LOVE TECHNO!!!" at the top of your lungs, you don't, you little poser. You're just off obsessing over a song that came out years ago and isn't even all that great. Listen to her songs and finally realize that they are the cheesiest forms of electronic music out there.
Cascada is, without a doubt, someone who only strengthens the traditional stereotype of how all electronic music sounds the same.
Let me restate the definition of techno:
Techno: A word describing a genre of electronic music that sprung up in detroit and europe around the same time (early 80's). Was (and Is) characterized by a 4/4 drum kick beat (varies), mechanicalistic effects and drum patterns from drum machines and synths, occaisional bassline, melody of various kinds, and a repititive feel.
Please, those of you who do use the word techno for everything electronic--don't. (credit to psytrancer)
And for the record, Cascada is not the best techno artist, they do not fit under the techno category, you dolt.
Smart person: Cascada blows.
