‘Out Of The Milky Way’, Spce CadeX are two Future Pop Bass guys from NYC. Steven and Lefty personally believe that music is the strongest form of self expression. Music can show emotions and feelings without even saying a word. That’s why they are so passionate about making music and never gave up through all the negativity that they have received for being producers.
“Let our music speak. You hear our sound now all we ask is, don’t copy it. Be inspired by it and make something creative with the inspiration. Be your own essence.”
We caught up with the producer DUO for some personal insights about what influenced them the most, what equipment and pug-ins they use and what they are up to in the near future. Enjoy the read:
Let’s give ‘Fools Gold’ feat. LUX a listen
Hi there, how are you and what are you up to today?
Hey, we are doing good and just producing music before doing this interview haha.
To those not familiar with you, how would you describe your sound? *
Our sound is consisted of the melodic dubstep side of EDM. We add some catchy top lines to make the track unique and catchy in the end.
What are the 5 albums and artists that have influenced you the most?
Oh man this is such a hard question as we are influenced by a lot of artist. Definitely our top choices would be Illenium, Said The Sky, Breathe Carolina, Grey, and Gryffin. We’re always listening to their music, literally on repeat all day to gain some inspiration.
Steven: Chameleon by Grey and Illenium Album
Lefty: Lots of J Cole haha but Riggi & Piros, NGHTMRE, Slander, and many more.
What other artists do you really like at the moment and why?
We really love Unknown Brain and Grey at the moment. Their sound is so unique and clean. We are huge fans of Grey, their recent album really drives our inspiration off the roof. From the start you can immediately tell that this album is unique and different from other sounds in EDM you hear everyday.
What are some of the key pieces of gear you use to write your tracks in the studio? Or do you prefer to use software and plug ins?
We prefer to use Logic and our favorite plug in at the moment is Spire and Kontakt. Ohhhh also forgot we love to record on our electric and bass guitar. Most of our guitar sounds come from that, it adds a more natural feeling to the tracks that we make.
Has your arsenal of equipment changed much since you first started?
Not really, we are firm believers of less is more so we just have a midi M-Audio Keyboard and our two guitars in the studio. We also have a launch pad but we barely use it haha so its collecting dust at the moment. We do plan to use it live once we start performing though.
Do you enjoy playing to an audience or working in the studio?
Believe it or not we have yet to play for an audience. We think that it will be a 50% split between both. We love to mix and also love to work on some new Spce CadeX music in the studio.
If we gave you the budget to put a line-up together for a mini fest, who would you book and where would you play?
Ohhh man we would add Grey, Unknown Brain, Midsplit, and other artist that inspire us to this day. For a location, maybe somewhere in Toronto or New York City (Which is our home).
If you weren’t a musician what would you be?
Steven: Probably working in a office doing business consulting
Lefty: Same as Steven
Listen to ‘Flying’ feat. M.I.M.E
Do you have any information regarding upcoming releases, projects, DJ mixes or collaborations in the pipeline that you would like to tell us about?
Yes we have a couple of releases for the next 3 months. We have one coming out on 4/20 and another one in May. The 3rd is still in the works as we have to make minor edits to the final version of the track.
Steven : We want to work on a official EP or maybe Album this summer. I feel like we are kind of at that stage to finally start working on bigger projects for our fans. Definitely going to be a lot of Spce vibes and we also want to experiment with this new sound that we’ve been working on in the studio. Should be fun!
