We found Richie Quake on Spotify’s “Fresh Finds” playlist, his track came on right after one of the songs we were promoting at the time. His infectious vocals mixed with 80’s synth and modern pop production was right up our alley. “Dreams” is his follow up single which came out today, it explores the meaning of the word in both senses – the images and emotions we experience in sleep, and the aspirations we have for ourselves in the waking hours – as well as touching themes of escapism and religion. While the verses are filled with surreal situations, the chorus is a direct plea to escape from the pressures of real life.
Listen to Dreams now on our SLAYLIST!
Richie Quake’s latest work is a break from his past, drawing inspiration from Quake’s experiences working as a DJ for the past few years. Existing in the space after the party ends and before the world begins, his music is about the thoughts and reflections on life that you have only when nothing else is around to distract you.
Richie is a born and raised Brooklyn singer, songwriter, producer and DJ. He first entered the spotlight with a stream of tracks that flooded the underground music scene. Since then, Richie’s unique brand of modern alternative-pop, marked by slow powerful sounds and reflective lyrics, has garnered the artist a strong following and praise from online publications including Fader and Nylon Magazine.
