Music runs deep within the bloodline of 18-year-old producer Angel Acevedo known as CADOFOX, as he comes from a long line of traditional Mexican folk musicians. Having grown up in California and Virginia with a father that freelances as a DJ, Angel began producing at the young age of 10-years-old. CADOFOX’s sound production explores the darker themes of sound design with drops that are primarily groove based and massive sample manipulation. His use of unconventional and broken sounds deliver that “glitchy” and “sporadic” feeling.

Hobbies outside of music?
I have too many, to be honest. I love digital art, and spend a lot of my time outside of music taking pictures, drawing or doing graphic design, 3D rendering, and doing various other little things, which usually tie back into my music in some way. I also like to pick up random little less than useful skills like solving a Rubik’s cube really fast, pen spinning, and flipping around a butterfly knife.
Currently CADOFOX is balancing the normal stressors of high school like applying for college. As he prepares for his music school audition, CADOFOX is working on a full EP. Not only is he a talented young producer, but also very skilled in visual arts. He spends his free time outside capturing photos, drawing or working on his graphic design skills seen on his Instagram.
We’re excited to share “Short Circuit” with you this Friday and expect CADOFOX to be a name you hear often within the electronic community.
Pre-Save “Short Circuit” here.
“Love it when I can hear something original and different and instantly feel hooked on it. It’s such a refreshing feeling given the bland copy-cat culture of today’s dance music landscape.. good stuff Cado.”
“When we first heard this song on the zoom call, I was absolutely blown away. I can’t even believe somebody is capable of doing something this fucking good. But here we are. Super glad this one is coming out”
