West Coast producer SHADED debuts on John Summit’s Experts Only imprint with ‘Don Julio.’
Growing up in Southern California and honing his craft at rooftop parties in LA, SHADED’s signature sound earned him respect from techno and house selectors, including Tiga, The Martinez Brothers, and, of course, John Summit. Additionally, the producer’s remixes for Boys Noize, Christian Smith, Anabel Englund, and more have earned him Pete Tong’s ‘Essential New Tune,’ which soared to the top of the Beatport charts. Continuing his success, SHADED unveils ‘Don Julio’; with a chugging feel and an infectious looped hook, this tune is set to do some serious club damage.
SHADED actually made the track for label-head John Summit on purpose, knowing how much John loves their 1942. SHADED sent the track to John at the beginning of the year, and it’s been a staple in Summit sets since then. And now, its official home is with Experts Only.
SHADED’s accolades speak volumes about his prowess in the industry. He’s landed two tracks, “Naughty Mofo” and “Hustla Baby,” in the Beatport Top 20 within the “Indie Dance” genre, a testament to his unique ability to fuse genres and create music that resonates with a wide audience.
