IRVINE, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Incase, design-driven bag and accessory brand for today’s creatives, today announces their partnership with Grammy® nominated and world-renowned artist, Kaskade, on a travel-focused capsule collection. The first-ever Incase x Kaskade capsule collection is now available on Incase.com.
“When I decided I wanted to design a line of luggage, Incase was my first phone call.”
The exclusive Incase x Kaskade capsule collection features design direction from one of the world’s top artists and most well-versed travelers, Kaskade. Over the course of a 20-plus year career as a world-renowned DJ, singer, songwriter, producer, and musician, Kaskade (Ryan Raddon) has flown the equivalent of the earth’s circumference 161 times - all equating to spending a full year of life in the air. Accumulating over 6 million frequent flier miles, Kaskade’s achievements in music production are rivaled by the unprecedented travel prowess subsequent of his global, fast-paced career.
“Of the things I’m uniquely qualified to have an opinion on, traveling would be first on the list,” said Kaskade. “The most integral part of being a seasoned traveler is knowing how to pack, what to pack, and most importantly, what to pack it in.”
Intentional. Functional. Clean. The Incase x Kaskade collection is deliberately designed and expertly engineered to perform at the highest levels. Masterfully constructed pieces conceived from their commanding artist’s namesake deliver supreme organization, protection and utility intent on facilitating the optimum experience for pro-travelers and their equipment.
“When I found Incase I loved the way it looked and more importantly, I loved the way it worked; design and functionality were there, living happily together,” added Raddon. “When I decided I wanted to design a line of luggage, Incase was my first phone call.”
Through a curated integration of elemental feature sets, tech-optimized storage, and premium materials, the Incase x Kaskade capsule encompasses an essential eleven-piece travel ecosystem including larger travel solutions ranging from a sleek Carry-On Roller and Backpack to smaller pieces including a mesh-constructed Headphone Case, each designed with a sleek interior lining featuring Kaskade’s custom geometric pattern.
“As long admirers of his music and career, we were equally as impressed to learn Ryan’s valuable insight and the top qualities he wanted in his travel collection,” said Andy Fathollahi, Chief Executive. “We knew the partnership was a perfect match when Ryan’s three most important design features seamlessly aligned with Incase’s design principles, emphasizing portability, simplicity, and functionality.”
Fit for any destination and available today, additional pieces in the Incase x Kaskade capsule collection include a Cable Accessory Bag, Passport Wallet, SD Card Wallet, Portable Power 2500 mAh, USB Light, Luggage ID Tag, two protective iPhone 7 cases and two iPhone 7 Plus cases with the signature Kaskade ‘K.’

Multi GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer, songwriter, producer, and remixer, Kaskade is a titan in the dance music world, and a groundbreaking innovator in the music industry as a whole. Bending the curve by which his contemporaries measure themselves, Kaskade has an unprecedented string of “firsts.” He was the first DJ to land a Las Vegas residency, the first ever solo electronic dance artist to sell-out both Navy Pier in Chicago, and the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and the first dance artist to perform and sell out at the Los Angeles Convention Center in its 45-year history with a career-defining solo headline date in front of 30,000 fans. A three-time Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival veteran, Kaskade made history in 2015 where he was the only electronic musician to headline the festival and drew the two largest crowds in its storied sixteen-year existence.
Crowned by The New York Times as “the new face of electronic dance music,” Kaskade has been bridging the gap between old school music purists and a new generation of music lovers. Relentlessly touring the world and playing to tens of millions people around the globe, he has been in the trenches for over a decade, laying the groundwork for a titanic musical and cultural shift. With nine studio albums and five GRAMMY® nominations to his name, Kaskade’s global reach is ever-expanding. He has headlined every major North American festival, and was recently inducted into Pete tong’s Hall of fame, and sold out London’s The Steelyard on his most recent UK date. His single “Fakin It” was first premiered in the UK when Kaskade went back to back with Danny Howard on his primetime “Dance Anthems” slot on BBC Radio 1.
While Kaskade’s handwriting is all over the history of electronic music, his influence today is at an all-time high. His latest full length album, Automatic [Warner Bros. Records/Arkade] claimed the #2 spot on the Billboard Dance /Electronic Albums Chart. Automatic commanded a Top 15 placement on the U.S. Digital Chart, as well as amassing over 50 million streams on Spotify in less than a year’s time. His live set from Ultra Music Festival 2016 has garnered over 2.3 million views in a matter of months. (Watch here) Kaskade continues his reign in Las Vegas with a residency for Wynn at XS and Encore Beach Club, and his social media reach continues to connect him with his audience in an authentic and powerful way. Rolling Stone asserts, “Kaskade represents an intensely positive side of dance music culture,” another cornerstone in the foundation that sets him apart.
