Hailing from London, Larry Cadge began his career as a DJ in 1989 and expeditiously evolved into a multi-faceted rhythmic architect taking influence from his musically entrenched family which includes his mother, the pianist. His techy edge, addictive ballads, and immensely funk induced cadence are designed for the dance floor. Larry’s old-skool disco-house feel can be attributed to authoritative figures in the world of music who he looks to for guidance such as Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Manuel Göttsching in addition to his mother and musically gifted family.
