Born out of the heady rave days of the early 90s, Adam Warped has spanned the evolution of the electronic music scene in the US. A true nightlife connoisseur and self professed music junkie he remains true to his underground roots by delivering a signature smooth unique blend of classic and uncompromisingly forward thinking grooves. His debut gig (via request of legendary DJ Reese of Astralwerks) at infamous NYC venue The Limelight led to appearances at many notable hotspots including The Tunnel, Liquids, Shampoo, The Lunatarium, Le Souk, Filter 14, Love, Phoenix Landing, 111 Minna, The Raleigh Hotel, 1015 Folsom, The Rickshaw Stop, Mezzanine SF, The W Hotels, and many many more.
From ‘97-99, Adam further refined his talents, studying sound engineering at Full Sail University. This study took flight when Adam left university to partner with ‘Big’ Ben Davidson. In 1999, the duo released their debut 12 inch “Left of Center” on their own label, Warped Recordings, followed by several other projects, including a remix of Hawke’s (Gavin Hardkiss) single, “Flower Girl,” which was also licensed for a mix cd entitled “Rachdingue Vol. 1″ representing Salvador Dali’s legendary surrealist avant-garde nightclub “Le Rachdingue Discotheque” in Catalonia Vilajuïga, Spain.
In 2005, a steady increase in west coast bookings led Adam to migrate from NYC to San Francisco. Adam had always related to the bay area's native funky, psychedelic, and eclectic house sound and it was very influential in his own sonic development. Ironically, this move was timed right along with the european electro house and minimal german techno boom in SF and ended up furthering his musical palette in a completely unexpected direction. After quickly burning out on these new trendy music fads (and honestly growing a bit weary of the typical 4/4 house beat) he evolved into a more classic balearic style approach to djing. This was when it all finally came together and his sound and technique matured into mastering the skillful finesse of a slow sonic seduction, utilizing a wide and deeply varied quiver of tempos and genres to gently coax his dance floors into elevated blissful heights.
After 3 years in San Francisco, Adam hungered for a move to uncharted territory and packed his records up for a transplant to Austin, Texas. This move brought collaborations in both the studio and with residencies. He formed a DJ collective, Machine :// A Modern Discotheque, which has been running strong for 2 years now with monthly residencies and special one off events. Adam’s devotion to rare disco vinyl also inspired an all vinyl residency, Love Drug, that lasted just over a year with partners Dj Supafly and Richard Gear. Adam’s talents are annually employed by SXSW, both with the technical set up and DJing showcases included in the week long musical festivities. He has also joined part in a national collective, “The Infusion Project,” with DJ Schugar and a countless resource of artists nationwide. Their events merge music with artist gallery showcases that attract an eclectic crowd of all ages drawn to the melding of the two.
In 2009, Adam launched his own label Whiskey Pickle Records in Austin, TX with worldwide distribution support from The Orchard and label manager Davey Schacherl aka RiCHARD.GEAR running the day to day operations. October of 2011, Adam’s alter ego Johnny Blackouts took to the studio producing "Down The Hatch" on San Francisco label Not So Fast Records. His remix of No Soul To Sell's "Electric Kool-Aid", for French label Electronic Petz was released in February of 2012. That release was followed up shortly by his first solo artist EP Johnny Blackouts-"Boozehound EP" on his own imprint Whiskey Pickle.
