It’s a good thing Ryan Raddon gets bored so easily.

Since releasing his debut single in 2001 under the DJ moniker Kaskade, he’s had trouble staying in one place both in a physical sense and in terms of his creativity.

That restless energy has driven him to travel the world as one of dance music’s most bankable artists, as well as continue to tinker with sounds and styles on his records.

Kaskade’s new tour, dubbed “Spring Fling,” falls in line with his mantra to perpetually mix things up.

Instead of booking huge arenas, which he’s already done several times before, the 46-year-old DJ opted to play smaller, more intimate venues over several nights.

Ahead of his Spring Fling stop at Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan on Tuesday and Wednesday, Kaskade spoke with the Daily News about songwriting, social media and how dance music has evolved since he spun his first record.

New York Daily News: Can you give me a sense of what fans can expect for your Spring Fling tour?

Kaskade: Fans can expect old, new and never-heard-before music.

Honestly, with every show I go out and do, I’m trying to change peoples’ lives. I’m trying to make a huge moment and give them something that they’ll remember forever.

I know that’s crazy to say after I’ve played maybe 5,000 shows in my life, but really that’s what it is. Leaving it all out on the dance floor and giving people something spectacular to remember.

NYDN: How do you think dance music is able to forge such a personal connection between the audience and the DJ up on stage? What’s special about the medium?

Kaskade: It’s hard to put your finger on.

I think, in the past, it was the fact that this music was so under the radar. People really had to dig to find it.

That means the people standing at that stage really wanted to be there.

The majority of people at shows spent a good amount of time, money and energy to be there because they really liked what this person put out and what they represent.

When I was a kid, nobody in my high school was listening to The Cure. That was different. But when I went to The Cure concert, it was mine. Robert Smith, he spoke to me. I had this connection with this guy.

When I went to listen to him at Rosemont Horizon, or whatever other venue in Chicago with 10,000 other people, I looked around and saw all these people who were similar to me. I think that makes for a really strong connection.

At the beginning of my career, I saw an opportunity to forge new ground and focus on songwriting. Not many people were doing that at the time. Pretty much nobody.

I thought I could write some really cool songs that would rise above all these dozens of genres that exist within dance music. I’d make it more about the songs.

For the last 20 years, I’ve been sharing stories of my life through music. I’ve been writing songs about my life.

NYDN: Your connection with fans also comes as a result of your embrace of social media. What impact has social media had on your career?

Kaskade: It’s just been huge. Huge, huge, huge. It’s impossible to overstate how important social media has been to me and the development of my career.

The fact that I can go and play venues that hold 25,000 people and sell them out is crazy.

I don’t have music on the radio. I’m not a pop culture icon. I’m just this kid making dance music. And yet I still can sell out massive arenas.

It’s truly incredible, and I think a lot of that is because of social media.

Excited to kick off #SpringFling TONIGHT w #Redux + shows Fri + Sat in D.C.

The fans have been able to find my music. Maybe they got a mixtape or a playlist from a friend, or whatever. So they discovered my music, but then it was easy for them to connect with me as a person.

I knew it straight away when Twitter first came around, and also Facebook, where it was so easy to post, that this was another way to speak directly with people listening to my music.

If they found my music and they like it, most likely they want to hear more from me and hear what I’m about.

I’ve put an enormous amount of time into that and it’s played out well for me.

NYDN: You’ve had the ability to watch the evolution of this genre. A pretty constant narrative that gets pushed has been the emergence of EDM as this dominant force. But now you’re seeing a blurring of the lines between EDM and what’s considered pop music. What kind of feelings do you have about that as someone who feels a sense of ownership over dance music?

Kaskade: The explosion of this genre led to a lot of weird and interesting things.

I think most of it’s been great. The popularity of it is awesome because ultimately that’s what any artist is trying to do. They’re trying to share their art with as many people as possible.

With that explosion of this dance music thing, there have been some downsides.

We’re lacking a little bit of that connection right now. Pop music is so massive. It’s everywhere.

Today, there’s less of that discovery. There’s less “I’m going to drive two hours and go see him at this dirty night club.”

We’re missing a little bit of that. It’s still there, and I feel like those connections are still made.

But I think now that it’s so big, we’re missing a little bit of the authenticity that was always there before.

Listen, when you see millions and billions of dollars being made in a genre, there are going to be copycats and people who jump in for the wrong reasons. Ten years ago, nobody was going to make dance music to try and get rich or even make a living. You couldn’t! It was impossible.

So when you lose that, with a massive boom, you get some people in the industry who would’ve never stood a chance five years ago. But pop culture is a little less discerning.

There’s nothing wrong with it, and I try to take the good with the bad.

NDYN: I guess you see that happening in any genre. Anything that’s successful, it automatically is vulnerable to becoming commercialized. It almost creates a new space for those authentic artists you were talking about.

Kaskade: I feel like that’s totally happening already. For example, the techno scene over the last few years has become massive. We’re seeing a lot of great techno music coming out.

I’ve always been a techno lover, but it feels like it’s really thriving right now because people who are discovering that sound don’t want anything to do with this commercial world. So they’re congregating in this other scene, and then that scene starts thriving.

I think what’s made electronic music so fascinating is that it came up through the underground and always moved and pivoted so quickly that you could never keep a handle on it. That continues to happen.

Sure, the stuff on the very top moves slower and is marketed for Spotify.

But there are still going to be undercurrents that flow freely and move around, simply because there’s too much of a base with this music.

It took 30 years, arguably, for it to surface in this country. And that’s not going to go anywhere.

NYDN: As an artist who’s enjoyed a pretty successful career, what keeps you hungry? You could easily stop making music and live comfortably.

Kaskade: It’s all about constantly figuring out new things to do whether that’s in the studio, trying to keep production fresh, or it’s going out on the road.

I sold out Barclay’s in Brooklyn a few years ago and I could’ve easily gone back and done that room again. I know the room and I understand the touring model for that room. But I’ve never played Hammerstein Ballroom.

It’s the same thing in Chicago. I’ve done Navy Pier multiple times. It’s a massive room. But I’m playing a much smaller room and doing multiple nights because it feels like a much different experience. I wanted to play a room that holds 4,000 people and play multiple nights there instead of play the room that holds 15,000 or 20,000 people. It’s just a different approach.

I think I’m constantly looking for new things. It’s not the best for business. My team sometimes wants to beat me (laughs).

But that’s what keeps it fresh and keeps me inspired.
