Adam W. (aka Zeno) has been immersed in music his whole life. He began his musical journey by exploring modern and classical music at a young age. Once he discovered electronic music in the late 90's, he knew he had found his home. He further deepened his love for electronic music when he found drum and bass. Influenced by DJ Dara, Dieselboy, AK 1200, Andy C and more, he felt compelled to begin his descent into the world of turntablism.
In 2003, Zeno began investing all his time into learning the art of blending music. He spent the next several years immersed in the sounds of drum and bass, with a focus on perfecting the mix. He began to host DJ battles at his local college, and pursue bookings at local bars and clubs. He teamed up with Dom Secret Sauce to begin a weekly called in:verse in 2006, which resided at Touch Supper Club. The night gained respect throughout North America for showcasing local talent alongside names like Klute, Flight, Random Movement, Submorphics, Carbon Community & more. He also founded the Cleveland Drum and Bass Coalition with Secret Sauce and Todd emplate, and continued to book acts such as A-Sides, Kjell, Dave Shichman, Sinistarr, Submorphics, Mixmaster Doc, Dave Owen, Joe Nice, and Loxy.
He has played at many prominent clubs and venues in the greater Cleveland area, including: Spy Bar, Wish, Metropolis, Touch Supper Club, the Agora, Anatomy, the Phantasy, and more. His sound and styles can range from deep, soulful music to dark, minimal grit and even liquid dancefloor. He is a diverse DJ that is constantly trying to blend his timeless music collection with new music to create a full aural experience.
