Residing in a city known more for motor sports than music, Adam Jay has proven himself to be a prominent figure in the world of techno through musical output alone. Classically trained since childhood, his influences span styles of music from around the world. His first output was shared between jazz and funk as an aspiring clarinetist and bassist. His passion for having complete control of both the rhythm section and the lead section lead Adam away from traditional bands and ensembles and towards electronic music production.
DJing at the age of 16 in 1997, Adams skills as a performer were quickly developed. Performing at the historic East Town Theatre (in its heyday hosting the likes of Hendrix, Joplin, and James Brown) in Detroit on his 18th birthday marked the true beginning of an illustrious career as a DJ. Live Pas naturally followed with the request of a live performance alongside Marco Carola and Funk DVoid in 2001.
In the last 2 years Adam has taken the global techno scene by the throat with continuous output on the most respected labels worldwide. His releases on the renowned Primate and Primevil labels are caned on a regular basis by such techno heavyweights as Carl Cox and Adam Beyer. Known amongst the global touring circuit as one of the essential live pa acts to hear, his touring schedule had him everywhere from Australia to Brazil to Germany, Belgium, and Austria in 2003. 2004 will see further extensive live and dj touring, as well as 12" EP’s on Ben Sims’ signature label Theory Recordings, Pornographic Recordings, Slobodan’s new Goathead label, and another full length 2×12″/CD on Adam’s own Chromagnon Recordings.
