After a few years of tightly regimented sounds and scenes dominating the dance underground, it now seems that people are making electronic music more freely once again. Techno guys are playing deep house, old-school flavors are mingling with cutting-edge production techniques, and the spirit of the times is more open to DJs and producers who are willing to mix it up than it has been for a long while.
As the techno world went minimal-crazy in 2006, Adam realigned his plans with a fresh label, New Kanada. In the spirit of imprints like Planet E, New Kanada avoids easy pigeonholing, preferring to put out a wide variety of quality music without being particularly genre-specific.
Recently acclaimed remixes for Seth Troxler, Radioslave’s Rekids label, and his own forthcoming outing on Cynosure (described by renowned techno writer Philip Sherburne as “absolutely gorgeous”), are all gaining serious props with heads from across the underground divide, with neo-house fans, minimal die-hards, and techno purists all showing their appreciation of late. Apart from his other boutique vinyl label, KUJI, who’s first release (‘Chord Tracking’) was record of the month in techno bible De:Bug – Adam has remixes scheduled for Tiga’s Turbo label and is currently collaborating with Toronto favourites Murr and Rosina from LAL, and K7's Milosh.
