Lemon Cake’s goal is to “make the world a better place one sunny day at a time,” and it is quite obvious to anyone who listens to them that the band is doing just that.

With his Redux Mix, Kaskade artfully expands the original’s piano and acoustic guitar soundscape with a touch of hypnotic house production and sweeping melodies. Songstress Becky Jean Williams’ voice soars as it immediately casts a spell. It’s available now via Arkade.
