DJ Wade Reggae Mixtapes

DJ Wade “Reggae Mixtapes”

DJ Wade first appeared on the airwaves bringing sizzling Jamaican music to tepid St. Louis. With a weekly radio show on KWUR 90.3FM, he offered a brave and nuanced collection of reggae, ska, dancehall, rocksteady, dub and roots records. Having toured the US for two years with Isaac Green and the Skalars, DJ Wade amassed an impressive archive of set lists and recordings, DJing clubs in every state as he crawled cross-country.

Recently, a secret box of old tapes was unearthed in his folks’ New Jersey garage, and are now available as podcasts. With the growing popularity of vintage Wade and over 1M downloads, new episodes are here. In the meantime, fans can get their fix of DJ Wade’s more recent twist on reggae with original reggae music from WonderSound.

MNDR has released a surprise new breakdown of pop track “Cut Me Out.”  Producer Peter Wade created this exclusive driving Dub version, specifically for Green Label Sound fans. It’s MNDR remixing MNDR and it’s free for download here!

Drums were sequenced on a Linn Drum and tracked right to analog 1/2″ tape with spring and delay printed live.  Wade and Warner then laid live bass guitar, synths and hand claps recorded with natural reverb from the front hall of Wade’s former studio “LaBronze Johnson”.  Two original heavily processed Jupiter-6 sounds were created to make up the synth bassline and pads.  Then the FX were overdubbed while Warner kicked and prodded the spring reverb tank and Wade dialed up delay throws.

MNDR’s latest single “Cut Me Out” is now available as a free download! Check out the single at Green Label Sound.

MNDR was in studio with John Schaefer at WNYC this past Friday, December 17th. As part of the Soundcheck program, she performed a few songs live in studio and talked about collaborating with Mark Ronson, the writing process, and her various successes of the past year.
