We catch up with Rick Wade and Kyle Hall for some SMALL TALK, ahead of their gig at Sydney’s Civic Underground on September 30th, brought to you by the unstoppable Astral People.
Rick Wade, inspired at a young age by the soul of Al Green and Isaac Hayes never quite forgot the influence – the funk and smooth mood have been driving his classic-sounding house music since the ’90s. His releases on labels, Mood and Grooves and TrackMode are now synonymous with energy and late night groove.

By day I… take care of my two sons; Ricky & Xavier
By night I…. go deep in the lab and work on tracks
The first CD I ever bought was… the Dragon Ball Z soundtrack
The last was…. Madvillian
If I wasn’t making music I would probably be… still doing multimedia and application development in the automotive industry
The best thing about touring is… experiencing different cultures and meeting new people
The worst thing about touring is… spending so much time in airports and on planes
