QUADE is an original, cutting edge take on Mid-Tempo dancefloor music combining influences from breakbeat, dub, electro, hip hop, and IDM. Bartek and Bim's musical chemistry was formed while rocking LA's underground music scene as members of Rootabreaka. QUADE was inspired during a time when both musicians felt unsatisfied with the evolution of the underground music scene, music was either too fast and hard, or too slow. QUADE found that the 105 tempo felt just right, not too fast, not too slow, just right. Dancers and listeners can expect a smooth blend of bass heavy, deep organic grooves, layered with moody synths,and sci-fi sound effects.During their live -performance QUADE provides true entertainment with live scratching, sampling, FX processing, on the fly mash-ups, remixes, and fluid mixing of their original music.
QUADE made their first appearance at the Moontribe Anniversary in Summer 2009, and followed with a surprise performance at the legendary raindance campout. You can find their first release on The Big Bounce Compilation, and is currently producing music for Critical Beats, an amazing charity helping to save the rainforest. As Dj's, Bartek and Bim are influenced by, and have individually shared the bill with top notch talent such as Freq Nasty, Basssnectar, Tipper, Cheb-i Sabbah, Skream, The Glitch Mob, SOTEG, Bluetech, Pitch Black, Random Rab, and many more!
Look for QUADE's new releases coming out this March on Ball Of Waxx records, Itunes, Addictech, and Beatport. Also in April 2010, QUADE will be performing at city near you on their west coast Spring tour! QUADE intends to provide a warm unifying sound, with a smooth organic feel, while incorporating new cutting edge sound and production techniques to entertain the dancer, and the listener.
