Art & Life with Schade

Today we’d like to introduce you to Schade.

Schade, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I would say my story started when I was introduced to music in the grade school band. By the time I got to high school, I was already interested in EDM at that point, so I began to produce my own sounds with whatever was available because diving deeper into that world was all I wanted to do.

As I got older, I began to take what I was doing a lot more seriously and really began searching for ways to grow and get heard, so I did my best to begin to share my work in person and online. I owe a lot of my early and current success to Twitter because I was really able to reach a large of people much more easily then any other platform. I believe a combination of online networking and the constant progression in my production skills got me to where I needed to be.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I make electronic music, specifically house music. I’d always thought that dancing and good times were an important part of life. Growing up, listening to latin music, hip hop, and R&B, I could almost even say that rhythm and grooves were in my blood by nature. Wanting to make people dance and feel great was a very natural feeling for me.

What I hope for people to take from my music is the rich multicultural aspect of Southern California, to touch on multiple emotions and to ultimately help people have a good time by giving them great music to play at parties and clubs. House music combines emotion, soul and dance in one place for me.

What would you recommend to an artist new to the city, or to art, in terms of meeting and connecting with other artists and creatives?
Find ways to connect genuinely with peers. For me it was being active online and often times I would meet some of these people at concerts and events. Carry yourself well online–sometimes it’s easy to forget that we may feel safe online behind a keyboard, but the reality is that our online presence is a representation of ourselves especially in my generation.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
You can access my work on all major streaming platforms (search for Schade) and all major social platforms (@throwinschade). The best form of support for me right now is to go to my shows and buy my merch and music.
