Hailing from the pastoral landscapes of the linke Niederrhein, HADE is a fixture of Cologne’s thriving nightlife. Besides releasing as HADE + DWFL on CGN’s Melting Pot Music, the DJ/Producer & keyboard whiz played clubs and festival stages across Europe and the US – alongside the likes of Jackmaster, Leon Vynehall, Palms Trax, Denis Sulta, Oneman, Lil Louis, Max Graef, Damiano von Erckert, Erobique and many more.
Together with DJ Phil Morris HADE runs his own club series „TIME TO:“ at Gewölbe (Cologne). Most recently, he helped launch Local Talk’s new sub-label TUNE with the “Freek Tool” under his Theo Walbeck moniker. The one-sided release was heavily supported by Laurent Garnier, Disclosure (a video can be found in the video links), Vin Sol and Axel Boman. The follow-up „Someone 2night“ will hit the stores in February.
Early 2017 saw him link-up with Brooklyn’s Razor-N-Tape label for the „HADE Edits“ EP, and a string of gigs in New York. Together with fellow Cologne-DJ Hodini (AKA Köln rap royalty Hulk Hodn) he joined forces on his upcoming EP for WOLF Music.
With a number of upcoming releases, „TIME TO:“ nights, and a vinyl-only label on the horizon, 2017 promises to become another big year for HADE’s vision of house, disco and footwork variations.
