Atlanta based jamtronica band Space Kadet continues to explore many genres on the instrumental spectrum, strongly emphasizing the creation of a spacy funky vibe. The culmination of musician friends Rohan Prakash (drums and samples), Alex Etheridge (Bass and Synths), Kyle Gissendaner (Guitar/samples) and Phil Ordonez (Percussion), their sound caters to any variety of music lovers ranging from down tempo abstract dubs, drum and bass, deep dub, electro jazz, high energy funk and more.
The future is bright for Space Kadet, recently sharing the stage with praised acts like Zoogma, Sunsquabi, The Werks, Elliot Lipp, Mr. Bill, Govinda, Late Night Radio, Higher Learning, Modern Measure, Stratosphere All Stars, and appearing on festivals like Purple Hatters Ball and Zen Awakening.
Today, the band shares their newest release, a single titled “Deep Cheeze.” Alex Etheridge tells us how the song came to fruition. “Our guitarist Kyle and I were playing around with recording different vocal stems. Initially we weren’t taking it too seriously, but over time, the more we picked at it, the more and it started to reflect all of us collectively. There was a tipping point once Rohan had a look at it when we all finally had that ‘a-ha’ moment and knew somebody needed to hear this. Shortly after, Rohan added some touch ups on drums and percussion which resulted in the final product we have now.”
Rohan Prakash adds, “We have a a few tracks that we’ve been getting ready to release far before this track was written, as well as different styles and genres we have been playing with, but the longer “Deep Cheeze” sat on our speakers, the more energy we had towards trying to get it out. This is the first of many releases to come as well as a new EP coming soon.”
We’re excited to premiere this new single! Listen to Space Kadet’s “Deep Cheeze,” streaming below.
