This 20-year-old is a one man show. Singing, songwriting, and producing on his own to create some serious tracks. Hit single “Care” is what initially drew me in (it currently has 3,714,944 plays on Spotify). The song starts out telling a story (as most do), his voice quivers on each pop note singing “you don’t even care for me anymore…I don’t even care for you anymore”. The drop at the chorus slams in, shaking electronics to their core. I fell in love with the contrast of sounds from verse to chorus, but somehow, they continue to mesh together in such a cool way.
His collaboration with fellow EDMsters’ Cheat Codes, “Stay With You” is another lyrically driven track, something Cade seems to have made his trademark so far. “Where We Left” is his most recent single. Try not to get addicted…
Distilled vocals and extended guitar riffs compile a gorgeous EP worthy of every summer sunset. Title track “Saw You In A Dream” is a romantic pop montage, while “Count to Nine” is a borderline indie hit infused with modern electronics. Lead singer, Amber Bain’s voice is as breathy as a summer breeze reminiscent of the eclectic Imogen Heap.
Top songs: “Saw You In A Dream” and “3/3”

Calvin Harris – Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1
Far from his “Feel So Close” days, Harris shakes his EDM brand. With a plethora of cameo’s, Funk challenges what we’re used to hearing on pop radio from the UK native. Each song has an underlying funk layer stacked with top R&B/hip-hop slayers like: Kehlani, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, Pharrell, and more. “Rollin” is your car jam and “Feels” is your Friday night turn-up.
