Paul Spade

Composer - Producer - Guitarist

  • I'm a composer, producer and guitarist, and I've always been passionate about music. When I choose equipment, I'm not interested in all the extras. I just want it to do what it's meant to do. And I want quality sound. I was impressed with Prodipe's logo: We're in the business of sound, so let your ears do the talking, not the price.

    Here's my opinion of Prodipe: you'll test it, you'll like it, you'll buy it! I chose the TDC6 coaxial studio monitors for starters, and the results were impressive. The stereo image was superb, giving a whole new slant to my production work. My sessions are much better balanced than they used to be, so I'm happy to pass on my experience. For my studio mic, I went for the STC-3D MK2. I absolutely have to recommend it for its smoothness, warmth and neutrality. A big thanks to Ludovic Lanen for sharing his expertise with Prodipe, and a big thanks to Prodipe for their concept: professional quality for everyone.

    I'm a Prodipe man now. They're the brand for musicians and producers who want the best.


KEROZEN are a French rock group whose lyrics are in English. Their music is defined by a keen sense of melody and the raw power of modern rock. They are fans of Guns'n'Roses and Aerosmith, also more recent bands like Nickelback, Foo Fighters and Airbourne. The group has forged a strong musical identity, and are now considered to be THE French rock revelation.

The group was founded by singer/songwriter, Nicolas Blaizeau, and producer/composer/guitarist, Spade. In the summer of 2012, they put together their first track: Whitejack. After finishing the recording, they produced a black and white video to accompany the song.

In the video we see the band performing as if they were live on stage. Whitejack is the perfect vehicle for Spade's distinctive guitar sound and Nicolas Blaizeau's stonking vocals. The clip was an instant success, first on social networks, then on YouTube, with 17,000 views. Since then the group have received offers from various labels (GDW/BackUp Records/M&O/London). Their debut single was played on FM radio stations and internet radio all over Europe.

After getting such a positive reaction, the two performers followed their gut instinct and made their first full album. The rest of the band came on board just before the final recording of the album: Tib' on bass guitar, Stef on rhythm guitar and Seb on the drums. Talented musicians, and all with an electrifying stage presence.
