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 and appearing on over 20 different labels worldwide, soulful, timeless grooves are his signature. Growing up in Buchanan MI, 1 hour outside of Chicago he was influenced by Chicago radio station WBMX and the Salsoul material and local stations that played the likes of Al Green and Isaac Hayes. In 1993 Rick and Dan Bell started Harmonie Park to release house material and in 1995 Rick started another label Bass Force primarily as an outlet for the Booty / Bass material that he records under the 'Big Daddy Rick' moniker. This time Rick brings us the "Depth Charge EP", three tracks of lavish organic deepness, with jazzy Rhodes-chords, strings, trumpets, warm lush big sounding pads, combined with soulful vocal samples and crisp beats. London's Westlake72 contributes with a stunning remix of "Be There", injecting a fierce disco groove and vibe.
