With the pandemic lockdown leaving artists confined to their home spaces rather than their mainstay nightclubs and festivals, we’re exploring our traditional How I Play videos in a new light: the ways in which artists are performing live sets at home.
This week, we sat down with LA-based DJ and Producer SHADED. With releases on Turbo Recordings, Desert Hearts, Exploited, Hot Creations and more, he’s been making waves in the techno, house, and minimal scene for quite a few years now. In the video, SHADED shares his live setup, how he uses each piece of gear in combination with his DAW, and more.
Watch the full video below, and grab the track SHADED demos in the video – his new release, ‘Mad Stacks’, out on Hot Creations – here.
Gear that SHADED uses in his setup
- Ableton Live
- Xone:K2 MIDI Controller
- Apogee Duet Audio Interface
- Native Instruments Maschine Mikro
- Roland VT-4
- Borderlands Granular app for iOS
Stay tuned: we’ve got more inspirational How I Play (at home) videos set to launch in the next few weeks. In the mean time, watch more of our historical How I Plays here!
