For as long as anyone remembers, Doc Adam has split his time between books, music and breaking things. An avid reader and obsessed fan of punk rock and hip hop since his early years in Michigan, Doc's varied fixations have taken him to a variety of destinations that surely seem incongruous. Traveling through early spelling bee championships, to multi-month European tours drumming in hardcore bands, to stints as a competitive amateur boxer and grappler, to DJ battles all around the midwest, to a Ph.D. in Philosophy, and into clubs all over the United States - Doc Adam has found his way into a life that is uniquely his own.
Equal parts deep thinker, rabble rouser, party starter, and iconoclast - Doc brings all elements of his personality into his simultaneously cautiously curated, yet extremely spontaneous DJ sets. Holding down monthly residencies at major clubs in both Portland and Seattle, Doc Adam has consistently shown himself to be one of the Pacific Northwests most versatile, highly-regarded and in-demand club DJs. His broad musical and intellectual range are also exhibited in his original production and infamously eclectic DJ edits - many of which receive regular play from such DJs as Cosmo Baker, Excel, Evil One, Jayceeoh, DJ-R, Sammy Bananas, Dave Nada, and many more.
This past year has seen Doc Adam be the lone DJ from Portland invited to compete in Seattle's Redbull Thre3Style competition, commence original audio work for Bunim-Murray Productions, compete in multiple Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments, land a new professorship, and nearly complete a book manuscript. Try to keep up. It's interesting.
