Ade Fenton continued his rise up the techno ranks in 2004 with a series of successful releases on his long running Advanced label, brand new imprint Perverter, and also managing Australia’s Premier techno label Wet Musik.
His worldwide respected label Advanced, now in it’s 6th year and nearing it’s 22nd release, has become instantly synonymous with dancefloor driven beats, representing Ade’s ever changing direction, from hard funked up techno through crunching industrial influenced electro.
This year saw Ade launching his new project, the Perverter label, based on his acclaimed double release of the same name on Ben Long’s Potential, both of which received continued support from many of the world’s leading techno dj’s for it’s forceful and unique approach to dancefloor dynamics.
Additionally, releases and remixes on many of the world’s most sought after labels including Primate, Primevil, Potential, Ground, Audio, Planet Rhythm, Wet Musik, Materials, Humanoid and many more have also contributed to his burgeoning reputation as one of the genres finest talents.
2005 sees Ade with a heavy release schedule already planned with EP’s forthcoming on Wet Musik, Reactive, Potential, Perverter and Body Jack.
With his DJ schedule as busy as ever, this year Ade celebrated his 6th year of residency at the UK’s leading techno club Atomic Jam, and blistering performances have made him a regular at techno clubs across every continent of the world, including I Love Techno (Belgium), Circuito (Brazil), La Real (Spain) and many, many more.
He has now made two appearances on BBC Radio 1, where his thunderous 27 tracks in 30 minutes mix remains the most requested and revered on the show, and his sound was regularly championed by BBC broadcasting legend John Peel.
Ade’s main project for the last two year’s has been the production of his debut album. Now almost complete, the album will see Ade moving into new territory, combining his well documented love of industrial acts like Nine Inch Nails et al, with the intense dancefloor electronics for which he has become known. An ‘artist’ album in every sense of the word is promised, highlighted by a number of songs written by Ade and featuring vocals by electronic music legend Gary Numan.
August 2005 will also see the release of Ade’s first mix CD, which will be a 10 year celebration of Atomic Jam. This will be accompanied by the anthemic ‘Atomic Jam’ EP (already being predicted as 2005’s big record), and a world tour is being scheduled to promote the CD and single.
