Ade Brown has been a highly versatile and adaptable DJ in the field of club-culture for more years than he’d care to mention… and that must be a few because he mentions it a lot!!!
Ade's versatility and range of music has never been a problem. His rich and varied choice of house and dance music has meant him avoiding being pigeon holed. Leaning from deep/tech, funky house & Nu-Electro through into bar room soulful garage, Nu-Jazz and lounge. Ade's sets can be fashioned to suit the majority venue or promoter’s needs, but most importantly any discerning crowd or audience.
Ade got into professional DJing with the advent of Acid Jazz in the mid to late 80’s and his disillusionment of the regular nightclub scene at that time, spinning tunes at soul & groove parties in Lincoln & the midlands. He attended some of the early raves and the mixing bug took hold with him getting his first 1210’s in 1989
In 1990 Ade became involved with PS Promotions and its regular house events on the South Parade Pier, Southsea and its boat parties off Portsmouth. Along with the home town parties came the out of town shindigs at many prestigious venues, from the Manor, Bournemouth to Club UK and the Ministry Of Sound, London. These events attracted people from as far a field as France, as well as regular mentions on Pete Tong and Danny Rampling’s shows on BBC Radio 1, amongst others.

The year 2001 saw Ade continue to play at various gigs around the UK. He became featured at Coolhouse, as well as the Sunday night Decode events run by Jon The Dentist. for another year AquaBoogie, at the time the UK's biggest club-culture boat party, and the Euphoric events, which attract 1400 people on bank holiday Mondays throughout that year.
He played 5-hour sets at one of Cardiff’s more exclusive venues Incognito, blending jazz, rare-groove, and beach house through to his funk & grind specialty. The tail end of 2001 and into 2002 saw him as a resident of Tempus, a nationally acclaimed deep/tech house event, playing his particular funk and grind and tech house music. He played regularly a regular at Time Flies and featured at one of the prestigious vents aimed at securing Cardiff’s bid to be the European City of Culture in 2008 Ade finished 2002 as one of the residents at Elements Cardiff’s on a Saturday night, events featured were Bugged Out and Miss Moneypenny's tours
In June of 2003 Ade commenced a summer residency at Cafe De Paris in Leicester Sq, blending jazzy house and Nu-Soul, as well as appearances at the infamous 'Navs Bar' in Covent Garden, London, UK in the basement of Navajo Joe’s. Following on from this in the latter part of 2003, Ade Became the Friday resident of ‘Cactus Blue’ in South Kensington, London where he played bi-weekly on Saturdays
I the years since Ade has continued to DJ through the UK & Europe, as well of course preparing for the launch of 'Boukoo' … He has returned to his residency at ‘Cactus Blue’ with an experimental fusion night of dance music, But is planning some exiting new events including a Nu-Jazz event which won’t be one to miss...
