DRIP DROPS of HIP-HOP from CHATTANOOGA
By Sammy Lowdermilk
I sat down with Slade this week to discuss his recent EP, the Slade Dynasty studio, and his plans for 2018. Slade is probably best known for, "Rondo," an infectious hit performed with i.Sean. If you haven't heard the song, then check it out immediately! Slade was born in London and spent his childhood in New York City. He spoke to us about his strict upbringing and his lack of exposure to music until he moved to New York. His passion for music was sparked suring his time there and has been with him ever since. Slade then moved to Chattanooga during his high school years, followed by attending Sewanee: The University of the South.
Slade has been busy in 2018, with no plans of slowing down. He's been rocking with Kay Kelly's Squad since late last year, dropped an EP entitled "Taking the World," and has been focused on Slade Dynasty- a studio and music service organization. Slade is focusing on taking his music to more people and a wider audience this year. He just put together a performance event to raise money for the Father to the Fatherless program. He dropped his EP in January and just released a new single with i.Sean and SonnyboiKage called "Set It Off (Issa Go)."
We were also intrigued by his Slade Dynasty organization. Not only are studio services provided, like recording, mixing, & mastering; they also organize events and help with CD production for distribution. Slade Dynasty is a professional grade studio and provides a professional grade mix. Slade prides himself on providing high-quality service for a reasonable price.
For the remainder of 2018, Slade will be performing in Chattanooga & Atlanta in the coming weeks as well as organizing a 'rap-battle-esque' event for a cash prize. This Saturday night, you can find him performing at the Midnight Puff event along with several other regional artists. What we're most excited about are the visuals coming from Slade this year. He's been working with Xanman Visuals, and hopes to release both "Taking the World" and "Set It Off" videos in the coming months. He's also planning to shoot the "Rondo (Remix)" video with i.Sean and Kay B Brown this year.
We can't wait to see what 2018 holds for Slade! Be sure to show some love with a follow on his social media accounts and on his music below!
