>The music video from Kaskade's single "Lick It," with Skrillex, from his album "Fire and Ice," premieres today on MTV and three new remixes of the track are available on iTunes today (http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/lick-it-remixes-ep/id518876726?ign-mpt=uo%3D4).

Kaskade, who has been named America's Best DJ by DJ Times and Pioneer DJ, is a former Utah resident and graduate of the University of Utah.

"Collaborating with Skrillex for the track and video of 'Lick It' was one of the more unique opportunities I had when recording Fire & Ice," said Kaskade in a press release. "Skrillex and I have different styles but that is part of what made it fun. I like doing the unexpected and this track and video is something truly distinctive." In addition to the Lollapalooza date, Kaskade recently announced the biggest tour of his career this summer with more than 50 North American shows — but none in Utah. The New York Times recently called Kaskade the "new face of electronic dance music."
