Bay Area-based producer FADEAD stopped by to spin up a fiery guest mix filled with an abundance of unreleased originals and collaborations.
Since his first release in 2018, FADEAD has held it down for the hard dance scene in the Bay Area and beyond. While he specializes in powerful euphoric records like “Need You Here” and “Without Me,” he can also throw down some heat in different styles. Over the past few years, he’s had two dubstep/hardstyle hybrid collaborations with Stryer, showing his versatility and ability to adapt no matter the situation.
FADEAD kicked off 2022 in a big way as he was a part of the launch for NRG Records with “Into The Fire,” which saw him utilizing the hard psy sound and creating a fine line between euphoric hardstyle and rawstyle. When asked about the hard dance scene in America, he felt that there’s going to be a major breakthrough soon. “With the more exposure the EDM community gets from [hard dance], the more of a chance it has of becoming a bigger market compared to how it is at the moment,” he said. “Deep down… everyone comes around sooner or later, and I am honored to be a part of its upbringing in America.”
Looking to keep the momentum going, he stopped by to spin up a guest mix on our hard dance mix series, Paradigm Shift. Without spoiling too much, this mix includes four unreleased tunes, where three of them belong to FADEAD, along with a multitude of the latest and greatest hard dance tunes from Europe. The Bay Area producer also shows love to plenty of homegrown artists, so fans will hear tunes from KAMI, Quarkee, and TYEGUYS throughout its runtime.
FADEAD has earned himself a spot as one of the producers that are contributing to the recent growth of hard dance music and you’re not going to want to miss him on his way to the top. With that being said, crank the volume up to 11 and listen to his latest mix to get a taste of one of the brightest young talents in the American Hard Dance scene.
