Listen to Kaskade’s “Turn it Down” ft. Rebecca & Fiona

Kaskade and fellow deejays Rebecca and Fiona teamed up for his single “Turn it Down” from his seventh record Fire and Ice.  Visually and musically, this song and video creates an aesthetically pleasing experience. You’ll hear a wonderful blend of Kaskade’s soft house infused beats and Rebecca and Fiona’s ethereal voices harmonizing with each other perfectly. Visually the video has many flashing lights and colors, ice skaters doing tricks, raving, and some animated scenes with neon lips syncing with the lyrics, alluding to the cover art for the single. Although Kaskade himself isn’t shown in the video, Rebecca and Fiona make an appearance raving and singing. They change outfits several times throughout the video, and I must say I love pretty much all of them. It ends with a closeup of what looks like Fiona showing off her briefs that have “Kaskade” on the waistband.

Behind the great setup, the video doesn’t seem to match the meaning behind the lyrics. The song seems to be about a lover who is irresistible despite his untruthfulness, and the singer keeps on finding reasons to keep the relationship which seems beyond her control. Aside from this, I am loving the artistry in this collaboration!

Lyrics:

I hold my breath when I hear lies
Adore to see your eyes fly
I hold my breath when I hear lies
I’m colorblind when you deny

There is no time to let the blood dry
You are running my heart
Look before you make your beat loud
Can you turn it down

There is no time to let the blood dry
You are running my heart
Look before you make your beat loud
Can you turn it down
Can you turn it down

Can you turn it down [x4]

Illusions fade when feelings rise
I push them under as I hide
Illusions fade when feelings rise
I keep on finding reasons why

There is no time to let the blood dry
You are running my heart
Look before you make your beat loud
Can you turn it down

There is no time to let the blood dry
You are running my heart
Look before you make your beat loud

Can you turn it down [x7]
