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.
In 2010 Larry founded Smiley Fingers, an independent House and Techno record label, based in London but operating on a global level. Larry’s fine taste for A&R has contributed to build the label reputation realising with talented artists and important remixers like Ray Okpara, Pezzner, Tapesh, Gunnar Stiller, Lomez, Hauswerks, Basti Grub, Mobius Strum, Lopazz, Saccao, LouLou Players, Dave Seaman & Andy Chatterley, Xenia Beliayeva, Da Fresh, King Brain, Hermanez delivering more than 150 releases.
Always on the search for the perfect groove and catchy melodies, in 2014 Larry released “Vicious Circle" that was charted for more than 2 months in top 10 Beatport’s Tech House, selected as Best Of 2014 Tech House Tracks and he was # 39 Best Tech House Artists in 2014 according to Beatport Top Tracker.
With Smiley Fingers Samples vol. 1, Larry released his first sound pack, containing over 200 samples. This pack was featured on Beatport and reached Sound to Sample’s top 10.
