Deadmau5 and Kaskade have officially teamed up to form Kx5, a one-of-a-kind collaborative project. The project made its formal debut last Friday 11th March with the release of “Escape (feat. Hayla),” a brand new single featuring rising British singer-songwriter Hayla which will make its live debut in May at EDC Las Vegas.

Kx5 has been in the works for over a decade and a half. When deadmau5 and Kaskade teamed up for 2008’s slow-burning “I Remember,” they effectively changed the electronic music landscape, and the influence of their follow-up “Move For Me” cemented their influence as the standard. Both songs reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart within a week of each other. The GRAMMY-nominated artists’ paths crossed again on 2016’s ominous “Beneath with Me” featuring Skylar Grey.

Kaskade made history when he performed the first public concert at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles in July 2021. The sold-out show featured a surprise performance by deadmau5 and the two artists reunited for a final set. As Kx5, deadmau5, and Kaskade, they’re ready to make history.


Escape (feat. Hayla)” is out now on mau5trap and Arkade, the labels of deadmau5 and Kaskade, respectively. You can listen to it via Kx5.
