Biography

For Toronto, Canada’s Adam K, it’s tremendous amounts of skill, creativity, hard work, and years of perfecting his craft that have catapulted him into the upper echelon of dance music.

Fueling his stellar live sets is over 17 years of experience in mastering sound design, audio engineering and producing. His keen ear for shaping sounds and knack for composing emotional hooks fuse together to create his trademark style. Adam’s solo and collaborative projects have dominated the underground including landmark tracks such as “I Can Feel”, “You’re Not Alone”, “Question”, and “From The Speaker” which melded the minds of Adam, long-time friend Soha, and Toolroom frontman Mark Knight. Of course it was another collaboration with Soha that captivated the world with “Twilight”. Named an Essential New Tune on the legendary BBC Radio 1, Pete Tong set the tone for one of the biggest records of 2007, which was confirmed by garnering Beatport Award Nominations for Best Single of The Year (finished runner-up to deadmau5), and Best Progressive House Artist

More recently an amazing collaboration with world renowned DJ and producer Kaskade, entitled “Raining”, swept the global scene by storm, reaching #1 position on iTunes in the US & Canada and #1 on the Beatport Top 100 Progressive Chart. As well the 2012 collab with BT “Tomahawk” hit #1 on the Beatport Top 100 Trance Chart and remained there for the better part of a month, and was featured heavily on ASOT and supported by Armin Van Buuren.

Adam’s most recent single “Come Alive” features the incredible vocals of fellow Canadian born talent Matthew Steeper and was released in January of 2015 on global electronic music powerhouse Ultra Music. After hitting Top 10 on Hype Machine, ‘Come Alive’ went Top 25 on Billboard, iTunes Dance, and CHR airplay in Canada as well as #11 on the Top 50 Canadian Spins on the BDS Airplay Charts, and the ‘Club Mix’ went Top 5 on Beaport genre charts. The official music video had been added to heavy rotation on MUCH and has amassed over 200K plays on YouTube in under a month.

Adam’s music is a favourite of the world’s top DJs and are a staple in sets from the likes of Tiesto, Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten, Kaskade, Above & Beyond, Gareth Emery, Matt Darey, Rank1, Judge Jules, Cosmic Gate, Menno de Jong, and more.

Not just an original composition mastermind in the studio, it’s Adam’s mind for remixing, along with partner Soha, that has catapulted him into superstardom as the duo’s remixes are some of the most pinnacle dance records of the past few years. Kaskade’s “4AM”, Benny Benassi’s “Come Fly Away”, Deep Swing’s “In The Music”, Heikki L & Ercola’s “Deep At Night” and most notably the Adam K & Soha Remix of Reflekt’s #1 UK Dance Chart tune “Need To Feel Loved” raised the duo to astronomical heights. Adam has reworked singles from dance icons Tiesto and deadmau5, to mainstream chart-toppers Keri Hilson, Shiny Toy Guns, and Robyn, to one of the most legendary bands of all time in U2. It is his vision, passion, and technique that keep them in high-demand from international hit-makers and underground sensations alike.

Traveling around the globe, Adam’s mastery in the studio translates directly into the art of DJing and he has rocked single-show crowds upwards of 10,000 for legendary promoters and venues such as Ministry of Sound, Godskitchen, Global Gathering, The Guvernment, and Privilege Ibiza. From festivals across Europe, North and South America, Adam’s definitive sound blows up dance floors and pushes the hands to the rafters. Though primarily known for his melodic blend of progressive house, Adam’s style is much more diverse, and showcases his love for all things house, tech to electro, deep to banging. It’s this affection for many genres and his ability to manipulate a crowd into a frenzy that cements his status as one of the world’s most memorable performers.

With collectively over 10 million plays on You Tube and support from the world’s DJ elite, Adam has seen his music effect the lives of music lovers around the world. With the rise of Hotbox Digital and a full slate of touring, solo projects, collaborations, and remixes on the horizon, this is the year of Adam K.
