Mr.Shade is a DJ and music producer born in Amsterdam (Netherlands). As a kid he was never interested in music at all. But when he was 16 years old a friend of his showed him some DJ mixes and remixes. This sparked his interest in music and DJ’ing so much that within 6 months he went from not listening to music at all to doing his first DJ gig at his highschool.
Since then Mr.Shade has played many different styles of music. Among those are: Moombahton, EDM, R&B, Dirty Dutch, Dancehall, Pop, Disco classics, Nu disco. He also produced music in most of these music styles. In recent years he has taken an interest in Moombahton. Both playing and producing it.
His music has been on Radio and television. One of his tracks became song of the week with local Dutch TV station L1. Another track of his became No.3 in the TMF chart. And with a Dutch internet provider called NokNok his music was featured in a TV commercial that was played daily on every nation wide TV staton.
By now Mr.Shade has been DJ’ing in countries like: Holland, Germany, England, Spain, Italy and Belarus. His main focus of the music he makes and plays is not on the style of music but on making people feel good. Most of his music has positive messages. But his music can be deep and philosophical as well.
