Grammy-nominated producer Kaskade continues his hot streak with Monstercat and Rocket League, returning with his new late night heater, “Closer”. Celebrating the launch of his hypnotic house tune, Kaskade will host Rocket League Radio’s takeover of Fortnite’s in-vehicle radio station, Radio Yonder, live across airwaves in-game starting today.
Kaskade shares, “Working on “Closer” felt like coming home for me. There’s a lot to be said for the comfort of warm chords, vibey vocals and build ups that bring us all back to our love of bass. I want “Closer” to be equally at home on the dance floor, the living room or in your headphones on repeat.”
“Closer” is the third single from Kaskade on Monstercat and in Rocket League, following his high-octane debut, “Flip Reset” with WILL K, and the vocal-driven anthem, “Solid Ground”. Fans can look forward to his anticipated EP arriving on Monstercat in March, featuring all three singles and more.
Introducing their music-themed Season 2 in December, Rocket League partnered with Kaskade as the first artist to align with an entire season of the game. “Closer” is available as a Player Anthem for a limited time in Rocket League, a new customization option that lets players soundtrack their goals in the Arena and MVP status in-game. Season 2 has also ushered in the new Arena, ‘Neon Fields,’ sporting a rave-influenced look and feel.
Over the last three years, Monstercat has provided the soundtrack to Rocket League with more than 90 songs from world-renowned artists, earning over 400 million streams across platforms, a 30k-follower Spotify playlist with tracks added monthly, and popular compilation albums including an exclusive vinyl offering.
Leading the charge in bridging music and gaming, Monstercat has created opportunities for artists to build long-term, dedicated fanbases within Rocket League. The robust strategy of releasing multiple singles, EPs, and curated content in-game, fully immerses each artist’s unique brand and creates an organic connection with their music.
