A tireless champion of deep and emotive house music, Adam Swain is as passionate a clubber as he is a DJ, promoter and label owner. His recent foray into the latter with Buxton Records is a direct reflection of his broad approach in the DJ booth, featuring a roster of local and international contributors such as Little Fritter, James Hunter, Dersu Uzala, Low Key Operations and Walker, who’ve each provided the label with music suitable for physically engaging dance floor excursions and relaxed headphone sessions alike.
Having built a reputation as an excellent warm-up DJ, Swain has done so for Marcus Worgull, Dave Seaman, Vincenzo, Moomin, Kevin Griffiths, Jay Shepheard, Oskar Offermann, H.O.S.H, Steve Bug, Lee Burridge and more besides. His more recent milestones include a 2014 warm up for Dixon in Hong Kong, and a support slot with Delta Sounds in Croatia for a Watergate event featuring Ruede Hagelstein and Matthias Meyer.
He has also been making regular headline appearances across Asia since 2010, playing club events and boat parties in Hong Kong with PUSH to massive hotel rooftop parties and island club events in the south of Thailand with Kolour Events. Somewhat closer to home, he’s been a featured guest at Sydney institutions Spice, S*A*S*H and Circoloco.
Not to be forgotten, Subtrakt Events - which Swain promotes alongside Rikki Newton - continues to go from strength to strength with continued appearances from some of the finest artists from across the globe as it enters its 8th year in operation. If one thing is certain where Swain is concerned, his determination and experience will only ensure finer results still in the years ahead.
