One of Detroit's best kept secrets, Rick Wade has been producing late night tracks and tapping into the essence of deepness since the '90s. Known for their universal appeal worldwide, soulful, timeless grooves are his signature. Having grown up in Buchanan MI, located one hour outside of Chicago, he was influenced by Chicago radio station WBMX and local stations that played the likes of Al Green and Isaac Hayes.
While attending the University of Michigan, Wade had the first house mix show on the college station WCBN called 'Journey to the Land of House'. Other presenters were impressed with his material and mixing skills and soon asked him to prepare mixes for their own shows. Around 1991 Rick was working on a mix for Brendan Gillen's 'Crush Collision' show and ran out of tracks. Having always had a love for hip-hop, Wade turned to his studio to create a track that would fit the mix perfectly and hasn't looked back since.
Today, Rick Wade is one of the premier House mixshow producers, known for his deep, funky vibes. Every Rick Wade set is fresh and spontaneous, drawing energy directly from crowd. Taking them to emotional peaks that connect the mind, body, and spirit, his shows are truly a signature experience.
