About Original Me

Original Me is the fourth studio album from German eurodance group Cascada, first released on 17 June 2011. Recording sessions for the album took place from 2009 to 2011 at Plazmatek Studio, Yanou Studio 1. The entire album, like their previous albums, was produced by the two DJs from Cascada, Yanou and DJ Manian. The album’s genre follows in the footsteps of the preceding album, Evacuate the Dancefloor, completely shifting away from the uptempo eurodance, containing electropop songs that are influenced by urban contemporary and pop music. Musically, the album is composed of electro-infused dance tracks with thick euro synths, cymbal crashing beats and Europop lyrics. Lyrically, the album, like the preceding albums, is composed of songs about love, dancing and relationships. The album was released as a two disc set. The first disc features the eleven original songs for the album. The second set is a greatest hits compilation CD, featuring every single Cascada has released internationally. Critical reception of the album overall has been mixed, with many critics praising the new sound and lyrics. The album currently stands as a commercial failure for Cascada, being their first album failing to chart or peak in the top twenty in countries where their previous studio albums sold well. Due to the singles being dismissed by the radios for UK airplay, they failed to chart, and therefore the singles were not supported by retail for a physical release, hence them only being released digitally. This also led to the album being dropped by Robbins Entertainment, which is Cascada's US record Label. Some would say the change of music genre has caused the album to be unsuccessful, due to the fact there weren't any songs featuring their old eurodance style, which they became famous for. Others may say it was the lack of promotion by the record labels.
