Ryan “Kaskade” Raddon has performed for fans all over the world, but when it comes to New Year’s Eve, the Grammy nominated electronic music producer – who’s famously remixed songs by Britney Spears, Beyoncé and Katy Perry – couldn’t be more thrilled to spin in Las Vegas.
“My favorite part about New Year’s Eve is all the anticipation and excitement that leads up to the big night,” Raddon, who will provide the jams at the Cosmopolitan Hotel’s Marquee nightclub where he serves as a resident deejay, tells PEOPLE. “People arrive at the show with so much energy that it is always a huge evening.”
The 2008 Grammy nominee, 40 – known for hits including,”4 AM,” “Angel On My Shoulder,” “Move for Me” and “Steppin’ Out” – just released his seventh studio album, Fire + Ice.
As the Illinois native prepares to embark on 2012, which he hopes includes “touring the globe and writing another album,” he reflects on New Year’s Eve’s past, and hopes that this is able to top when he performed three shows in three major cities on the same night.
Taking a moment to share ten of his favorite new songs with PEOPLE.com readers, Raddon is letting you know what to expect to hear from him on the year’s biggest night:
