"Scared of You"

SuperDre had the difficult task of priming and streamlining the growing crowd’s attention. While capturing the attention of a young crowd distracted by three full-service bars, cell phones, and a broken glowstick splattering the dancefloor with toxic pus can be daunting, at the very least, Andrea Wallace AKA Dre made a supreme go of it. Elements of dubstep, minimal electro, and tech house were present in SuperDre’s set. The rumble and rattle of her bass and drums worked their way into the crowd’s bodies and feet like a steam locomotive. She worked the battery hard, keeping the engine chugging along and successfully setting up the rest of the night. With a headliner like Bassnectar, the opening slot can be murder, but Dre held her own, and turned some heads in the process. She’s keeping very good company in the run-up to her debut album’s early-December release; this Grand Rapids, Michigan-based producer is likely to be popping up all over the Midwest.

"Electronic Music: Can SuperDre Save the Day?"

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Just before deadline, I was sharing this
month’s cover with REVUE staff and some of
the mavens that I like to consult on such
things. The reaction surprised me.
“I think it’s awesome you’re putting an
African-American woman on the cover,” one
of them said. Others nodded in agreement.
Um, really?

Maybe I should be crystal clear that our
decision to put AndREA “SUpERdRE” WAllAcE on
the cover isn’t a diversity thing — it’s an
excellence thing. While I know almost zero
about electronic music, we’ve heard from
people who know what’s-what on the dJ scene
that dre is the real deal. Über talented.
passionate. committed to her craft. (And
yeah, the picture of her by TIM MOTlEy rocks!)
Our 2010 mission at REVUE is to expose
the superexcellent events and people on West
Michigan’s entertainment scene. Too often
in the past, we’ve been guilty of setting
the editorial bar at “participation” when
it came to choosing what and whom we covered on these pages.

With the growing number of choices competing for your ever-shrinking entertainment dollar, it’s important for us
to raise the bar and celebrate entertainment
SuperDre fits the excellence bill, ac-
cording to our sources. Word is that she’s
also Supernice. When she’s not spinning
tunes, she does volunteer work with nonprof-
it groups (e.g., Alternatives In MOTIOn) and
the Grand Rapids Public Schools. be sure
to catch Associate Editor lIndSAy pATTOn-
cARSOn’S “Q&A” with dre on page 14 as well as
REVUE’s feature on the surging electronic
music scene in GR.

On another note, we’ve been saying for a
year “print media is not dead!” We got fur-
ther affirmation of that fact recently when
a friend of ours posted a Twitpic of her dog
being paper-trained on a copy of REVUE’s
February edition. Try doing that with
GRnow, RApId GROWTh or other Web-only pub-lications. Seriously, we’re happy that the
magazines are being put to good use long af-
ter the events we feature are over and done.
Thanks for reading REVUE. be good.

Bio

Super•Dre [soo-per-dray]

- proper noun

1. a Michigan-born producer and DJ

2. a byproduct of years of classical music training and nerdy computer skills

In just a few short years, SuperDre (aka Dre) has brought her unique sound and contagious stage energy to packed dance floors and events across the nation.

Releasing her hip-hop influenced tech-soul house sound on her boutique label, Bass Candi, Dre thrives in the live environment delivering her sets on turntables, an art becoming more and more rare among Producers/DJs.

Sponsored by Native Instruments, Dre’s skills were featured in the Technical Genesis series, a ten volume showcase of her ability to effortlessly create a unique mix of minimal techno, electro and retro. Her appearances and accolades also include independent films, holding down the popular “AFTER Club 104.5,” on Grand Rapids’ largest radio station, 104.5 WSNX, as well as in 2009 being voted the area’s “DJ of the Year” and one of the “Top 10 Most Influential” electronic artists to come out of the region.

Serving up her distincitve brand across genres, demos and venues, Dre has shared stages with hip-hop acts like Slum Village, The Cool Kids and D12, DJs/Producers such as DJ Irene, Bassnectar and Terrance Parker as well as a variety of other national indie and electronic bands.

With a multi-genre musician approach as a producer, her ability to move fans of all musical styles as a DJ and to deliver energetic live turntable sets as a performer, Dre brings a uniquely innovative style yet retains a soul rarely found in the electronic music scene today.

Influences: Afrika Bambaataa, Loco Dice, Parliament & the Funkadelics, Pharrell Williams, Nina Simone, Joshua Bell, Bassnectar, RZA, Jimmy Hendrix, Green Velvet, Magda, Missy Elliott, Adultnapper, Si-Begg, Cassy, SIS, Kid Sister, Magda, Claude VonStroke, Kelis and Daniel Mehlhart.
