This summer SHADED swapped the Sunshine State for the sun-drenched city of Barcelona and a European excursion that proved a huge and inspiring success.
In a twist, SHADED's new single sees him combining some of his home town freakiness with the hedonistic, passionate and open-minded vibes of his adopted seasonal home.
Gender Bender, as its names suggests, is a non-conforming tech-house cut, an exotic number, with sultry vocals, rubbery groove and electro stabs that rock with a 'no-fucks-given' attitude.
A big single deserves a big remix package and SCI+TEC mainstay Carlo Lio unleashes with a remix that sees him going harder and heavier than we've seen him for some time. Bringing things back down is Ireland's Matador, who turns in a chugging, groove-heavy rework. A perfect brace.
Rounding out the package is SHADED's Funk Tone. Like an electronic popping candy, this cheeky techno tool is a mouth watering treat and a great addition to the release.
