In Conversation With Spce CadeX


'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!

Ethereal EDM artist SEAPORA tells us how she thinks music impacts human life and more



We recently had the pleasure of interviewing ethereal EDM artist SEAPORA who has recently released her EP titled “Seaflow” through Chillage Records. Her music is known to capture moods and connect with listeners worldwide. SEAPORA has successfully managed to fuse Electronic music and natural sounds to create unique and magical soundscapes that highlight the singers vast knowledge of music and artistic expression.


The Californian artist gives us a glimpse into what makes her sound so unique as well as her career highlights.



What do you think makes your music unique?


I think what makes my music unique is the combination of innovative lyrics and original instrumentation created through the collaboration of different producers artistic ideas. When producers come together and fuse their artistic expression in a completely unique way magic happens.


Has there been any particular moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?


I think the process of making the music rather than a particular moment in time is my favorite part. The actual journey of making an album, the musical creation, recording the lyrics in a studio, mixing, mastering, working with artists to design the album and then releasing the final product to the world is what I enjoy the most.


What has been your most enjoyable song to write or produce? And why?


“Eternal” for my Royale project, was one of my favorite tracks to write and collaborate on in terms of production. I really liked how the other producer had ideas about what the song meant, and helped collaborate in the lyric writing process. I also enjoyed adding instrumental melodies after the lyric addition that complemented the message behind the track.


Do you think song-writing is a talent you were born with, or has it been something you’ve had to perfect over time?


I used to write a lot of poetry as a child, but I think as my vocabulary broadened and I experienced more of life the meaning behind the writing got deeper and juicier. I think studying music theory and song writing also helped me grasp the structure of lyric writing.


Do you ever experience writer's block when writing lyrics? I imagine this to be particularly annoying if you were in any kind collaborative situation. If so, how do you overcome this?


Absolutely, I think this is inevitable for all artists. I find it is best not to force creativity and let it come through you in its own time. If I am collaborating with another artist and I am not able to come up with a lyrical idea, I will empower the producer to create and usually their artistic expression will inspire me and we will be able to get out of the writer’s block together.


What song instantly puts you in a good mood?


Eric Prydz – Call on me. Hands down this song exudes positive energy and will instantly get me in a good mood


What song instantly makes you want to cry?


U2 – With or Without you The lyrics in the track are so powerful and reminds me of young love. Also Adele – Hello and Aerosmith – I don’t want to miss a thing Thing are serious tear jerkers.


What is the best career advice you have received so far, musically speaking?


Don’t give up and take every opportunity to perform that comes your way whether small or large.


Besides making music - please name any other talents or skill-sets that you’re exceptional at?


I am a lifelong learner and I have worked hard at refining my belly dance performance and floral design skills.  


As a performing artist, are there any mantras or rituals which you live by, before or after a live performance?


Yes, I believe in self-care and drinking lots of herbal tea and before singing on stage!  It helps my voice out tremendously. I also think it’s imperative to take in the energy from the crowd and match the flow of the audience in my performance.  


What would you like your fans to take away from your music?


What I would want a fan to take away from my music is incredibly varied depending on the song they might be listening to.  I try to write about the full breadth of our human experience, and I would hope that I can engage with my fans across that full scope.


How do you think music impacts human life?


Music allows us to tap into the depths of human emotion and helps us through pivotal moments in our lives.  There’s enough evidence to suggest that perhaps before language, we had music. As a people, music was our first language. It activates something primal in us – something important.  It’s hard to say why music matters so much in our lives, but as human beings, all of us know it when we hear it.


Out of your discography, which happens to be your personal favorite, and why?


That is a tough one because it definitely changes, but at this time I would say “Eternal.”  I really enjoyed collaborating with Urple Eeple on this future garage track!

Hi there, how are you and what are you up to today? 
I'm doing extremely well at the moment! Exalted for my latest releases, I've had so much great feedback recently from some of the biggest names in the EDM scene!

To those not familiar with you, how would you describe your sound? 
EDM overall, bringing you some groovy beats with funky synths!

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? 
As I produce EDM my music is based on software and plugins. Even though, my ideas usually come from the piano or guitar.

Has your arsenal of equipment changed much since you first started?
Not really, no. I've been using 1 computer, 2 monitors and a microphone since the beginning. I might have upgraded the equipment but it's still the same amount of elements.

Do you enjoy playing to an audience or working in the studio?
It's always fun doing the live shows but in the end the studio is the winner.
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?
First act: Gidge
Second: Session Victim
Main act: Lemaitre or Format: B.

I would've had the event far from the big city, no matter where in the world.

If you weren't a musician what would you be?
Probably a guy who would try to become a musician :)

Do you have any information regarding upcoming releases, projects, DJ mixes or collaborations in the pipeline that you would like to tell us about?
I really can't tell you so much about upcoming stuff yet, I will be singing on my next release though!
