Kaskade Recounts Near-Death Experience During Flight – EDM.com

Kaskade has told the story of a harrowing experience in which his plane caught on fire.

If things had gone just a little differently during an international flight boarded by none other than Kaskade, the decorated DJ/producer may not have risen to become a fixture of the EDM world. He recently told the story of the trip gone amiss, revealing a harrowing account that found him fearing for his life.

The incident took place while Kaskade (real name Ryan Raddon) was on a flight back home following a European tour, according to his recent Facebook post. “I woke up to the smell of burning plastic,” he wrote. “As the main cabin started to get hazy and fill with smoke, it was obvious that something was really wrong.”
