Bio:

At the end of the 1990’s Adrian Martin was a regular party youngster enjoying the pulsating and driving beats of the electronic world at parties and clubs in his native Switzerland. Clearly not aware he would become an emerging talent of that scene, Adrian soon become friends with local DJ’s discovering his talent and joy spinning the wheels himself. What all started out of fun turned into never ending appetite for more. After two years of hard practicing Adrian first gained recognition teaming up with DUSMO, a platform for young and DJ’s and producers of his native city Basel. But it took him two more years until his first own music production would see the light of day. *My Friend* a co-production with DJ friend Santiago became an instant hit at clubs all around the world. Earning him a release license on Roger Sanchez *Release Yourself Compilation Vol. 5* and the MAP Dance Records label. Capturing this success Adrian releases his first remixes for other artists *Doruk Ozlen feat. Trollan – Do you feel me* and *Take action* by *Liebe ist cool*, though becoming a resident DJ at the Pazzoide party label around that same period. Somehow Adrian’s music has a magical even magnetic effect on people. Tim Sheridan, for instance, while playing in Basel signed him instantly to his VERYVERYWRONGINDEED label for two releases after hearing his track *Norka*. The two double A-Side releases *Norka & Fullness* & *Way in & Way out* are the child born out of this collaboration. Co-produced with longtime friend Eleminal, Adrian recalls this birth as one of his proudest moments so far. As his skills are developing Adrian’s interest in the music industry is expanding and incorporates into MINILOAD Records. Acting as A&R for the record label Adrian simply follows his instincts and has signed some musical revelations such as HIGUCHI, Doppelt Gemoppelt, Rhadow & Luca M and his kind and friendly soul has led into winning collaborations with Stefan Mallmann, Normen Hood, Jens Bond, Pedersen aka Kid Massive and Stefan Tretau just to name a few. To release his own productions and collaborations on MINILOAD Records gives Adrian artistic control and freedom to experiment. Direction and style of production have changed since his early days. Starting in a more house oriented style, swapping into minimal-tech and now riding on his own directional mix, Adrian Martin has always kept a rough approach on his own tracks and remixes. Have a listen to the early *My Friend* and ride from *Norka* to his tekouse remix for Grammy winning artist Fatman Scoop’s *Let’s have a good time*. Or experience his latest coup an interpretation of José Mas’ *Incredible Music*, which has gained him strong interest from established names like Loco Dice and Danny Tenaglia, and recent productions such as *Two Weeks* and *La Calma*. His sound is addictive. Growing as sought-after remixer and collaboration partner Adrian Martin has come a long way. As 2011 just started Adrian Martin is expecting to see his first release on Benno Blome’s Berlin based SenZen and has done a remix for Tom Clark & Martin Eyerer collaboration track *Sooner or Later*, to be released on Miniload Records this spring.He is also enjoying a residency at one of Switzerland's most exciting venues NORDSTERN in Basel.A place enabling him to be and keep in touch with the audience.
