Creating music to me has always been about painting a sonic picture, taking the listener to another place for a brief moment. I felt that during these strange, rather dark times, everyone could appreciate a song that breathes hope and peacefulness, so that’s what I tried to bring with “Shade”: a shelter from the sweltering heat of the burning sun.


Poldoore – Shade

Release Date : January 8, 2021
Artist : Poldoore

“Shade” turns mid-winter melancholy on its head with an aura of chillhop inspiration. A collage of musicality and crisp hip hop vibes bring a glowing warmth for the pitch dark; shade for the sweltering sun. The chillhop state is laid down by a true veteran, Belgian producer Poldoore, who’s proven his voice in the worlds of sample-based instrumentals, heavy-hitting electro hip hop, ambient chillhop and beyond.

Thomas Schillebeeckx AKA Poldoore hops on Stereofox Records for the first time with a track he found a flow state in. Despite his meticulous workflow, “Shade” was tracked over the course of two days and is packed with colorful instrumentals, warm synth production and hip hop drums that move us forward.
