Forever pushing musical boundaries whilst producing a distinctive and evolving sound, SHADED brings his Southern California roots to Hot Creations this May with Mad Stacks. No stranger to the label following his High. Alive. And Dirty. EP, Demuir is onboard to deliver a solid remix.
SHADED describes how Mad Stacks is the latest iteration of his sound. “It appeals to the Tech-House side of the spectrum, as well as the Techno side. I have always felt my music was able to dance along that fine line. Mad Stacks is rooted in my deep love of hip hop music and that West Coast California “G-funk” vibe. Simplistic, pumping, and oozing with attitude.” He also explains how he experiments with his own vocals. “People never believe they are mine. I have so much fun writing little vocal hooks, bits that stick in peoples’ heads. ‘Mad Stacks’ just sounded dope.”
Release Date: 22nd May 2020

Mentored and inspired by Ali ‘Dubfire’ Shirazinia, SHADED first appeared as part of the duo SHDWPLAY, who released a string of successful releases on SCI+TEC. He ventured down the solo path with releases on Tiga’s Turbo imprint, including the label’s best-selling release and Mixmag’s ‘Tune of the Month’. He’s also a key associate with Oliver Huntemann’s Senso: appearing on the 5th birthday release. SHADED is now working to finalise a new two-hour live Audio Visual show tailored to his style and vision.
Canadian native Demuir adds another dimension to the original, adding a synth loop to create a funky, new melody. With releases already on labels like I’m A House Gangster and MadTech, Demuir’s incredible career ascent shows no signs of slowing down for 2020 and beyond, with releases and remixes on Pets, Sola, Circus, Do Not Sleep and Hot Creations.
