SHADES is the NYC based DJ/producer duo comprised of Thomas Matera and Julien Johnson. During the past two years, the two college students have been working on improving their craft, style and creativity while developing a unique sound within dance music. After experimenting with the different styles that encompass the genres of dance music, Thomas and Julien decided to blend EDM and pop into their own sound. With their uplifting melodies and energetic harmonies, they try to capture a variety of emotions that create a memorable experience.
Thomas and Julien have been friends long before they ventured into producing electronic music together. Growing up in the same neighborhood, the talented guys played on the same baseball team and were members of a band together. They’ve come a long way from those days, now being supported by heavy-hitters in the industry including The Chainsmokers, Gazzo, Milk n Cooks, Rich James, Kenn Colt, performing live in front of large audiences, and opening up for Gryffin. Their repertoire of remixes includes official remixes for King Deco, Romes, XY&O, Tigertown – among many others. SHADES has received support from iHeartRadio, NYC’s #1 hit radio station Z100, a number of outlets in the music blogosphere and have made multiple Hype Machine chart appearances. With a wealth of experience behind them and a growing fanbase, the future is bright for this young duo.
