Please meet “Vinnie & Kelly”, the new EP from HADE + DWFL. The two dope boys got their
double cups filled with footwork, R&B, Cologne garage and a remix by Lockah.

B2 Reprise

Cologne’s producer duo HADE + DWFL don't do aerobics – they do beats and bassline steppers
and they're pretty darn good at it. Check out their acclaimed debut „The Healthiest Man In
Chicago“ and you know what's up. Cooking up a heavy stew of next level beats, footwork,
Chicago house and sounds from the outer fringes of the bass spectrum, the HADE + DWFL
formula has already proven to work out on floors and festivals across Europe.
For the record: back when Ed Banger and nu rave was king, HADE + DWFL were big in
BeNeLux with their former band Ampersand. Fast forward some few years and the classically
trained synth-wizard HADE has become a staple of CGN’s rejuvenated nightlife, he also rocked
the Beat BBQ, Splash! and Melt! Festival 3 years in a row, spun records for Mykki Blanco or
Mobb Deep, remixed everyone from Iamnobodi to Baba Hafti, and shared the stage with
Oneman, Schlachthofbronx, Eliphino, AndHim, The Underachievers and many more. Recently,
Hade’s heartfelt tribute to DJ Rashad’s untimely passing was championed and played out by
everyone who has a say in the world of low end frequencies - from the Teklife gang to Vice's
Thump mag (who pronounced the tune their track of the week) to long-time supporters
Oneman, Gilles Peterson and London’s Young Turks camp.
Arguably at his best alongside his production partner and fellow Al Bundy enthusiast DWFL, the
boys now deliver on the promise of their full-length debut with their new EP “Vinnie & Kelly”: a
soul-stirring three-act play of love and despair in a footwork and UKG stylee, inspired by young
Christina Applegate and Matt Leblanc. Well, dope next-gen club music is what it is, really.

About Lockah:
Born in Aberdeen, Lockah is part of the recent wave of innovative Scottish bass music
(alongside the likes of Rustie, HudMo and the Numbers crew). He recently relocated to
Brighton, where he is part of the Donky Pitch label fam.
Lockah has released on Diplo's Mad Decent/Jeffree's imprint and on Slugabed's Activia Benz.
He also runs his own label Tuff Wax. His debut album "Yahoo Or The Highway" scored rave
reviews all over the place, from Pitchfork to XLR8R and Dummy Mag.
Lockah is known to be a massive nerd/scholar of the Miami Bass legacy, which clearly shines
through in his remix of "Vinnie", taking the sultry R&B/footwork original on a dune buggy trip
to South Beach. We also recommend his Boiler Room Session from earlier this year and his
recent BBC Radio 1 guest mix for Diplo & Friends: Available from 12.12.2014
