Adam X's sound is best described as hard, EBM and industrial inspired dance-floor techno & electro. Adam X penetrates, educates and infuses his audience with a real energy, often drawing from dark & sexual themes, through the mastery of the electronic music medium he has gained from a prolific career.
Adam got started in NYC in the early '90s -an era of a burgeoning grass-roots music and club culture, which he himself had contributed to. Following teenage years of aerosol art, underground club music & electronic creativity in the late 80s, Adam X & his brother Frankie Bones found their way to techno, a new and emerging genre. Around this time Adam X and his brother also hosted a series of underground warehouse events, the most famous of which are the legendary 'Storm Raves,' which featured up and coming artists such as Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, Damon Wild and Lenny Dee. It is often said that a techno event in the US cannot be considered 'official' without the presence of one of these two people in its line-up.
In his career, Adam X has performed alongside artists such as Aphex Twin, Surgeon & Joey Beltram, and lately, the likes of Terence Fixmer/Douglas Mccarthy and Andrew Weatherall. He's performed at events, raves and club nights globally including Mayday, Love Parade, DEMF, and Fabric. Adam's list of solo commercial releases and collaborative projects on CD and vinyl is equally impressive. A few of the many labels Adam has released music under are Wax Trax-TVT (Mastermix Series Vol. 2), Instinct Records (Adam X 'On the 1 and 2'), Oliver Chesler's Things To Come Label (Sensory Deprivation) and many projects on his own aforementioned label, Sonic Groove.
Adam has always stayed on the cutting edge of electronic music. Never restricting himself to just one particular style of techno, Adam’s continuously evolving sound has progressed from the darker moods of early Belgian, German, UK, and Detroit techno, to a harder Industrial sound now compiled on his latest ‘Fate Unknown’ release (2cd) on the new Belgium label Psycho-Dynamics, worldwide distributed by Alfa-Matrix.
