DISCOVER: Pop/Hip-Hop Group Space Cadets

Los Angeles Pop/Hip-Hop crossover group Space Cadets consist of Zachary Wexelman (vocals, guitar), Dan Creed (bass, backing vocals), and John Cocco (drums).

Space Cadets’ debut 3-track EP ‘fLAke’ was released in December of 2015, showcasing a unique mix of genres in their music complimented by a coherent lyrical narrative reminiscent of the golden age of hip-hop. Less than a year later (August 23rd) Space Cadets released their self-titled 4-track EP. For this project, the legendary James Ingram helped them record the EP.

Ingram has worked with with many musicians, such as blink-182, Tyler the Creator, Michael Jackson, Mike Posner, and more. Space Cadets is one of those groups that can’t be too classified or categorized by the genre of music they perform. Pop and Hip-Hop are just two of the vibes we get from listening to Space Cadets music, along with lyrics that grab the attention of younger generations with lyrics like, “I’m in love or lust, I don’t really know / Met you in Boston, now I’m headed to the other coast / Changing the game, girl making fallacies truths / Facebook can’t supplant 3D version of you.”

If you’re a fan of groups like Emblem3, you’re definitely going to love this group.

Hi! I'm Mel. I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile.
