ABOUT AD BROWN
A leading light on the British dance music scene, Ad Brown has rightfully garnered the attention and support from some of the industry's biggest names. Flawlessly rolling out his signature, high-calibre productions with ease and aplomb, it's no surprise that his praises are sung unanimously by industry heavyweights like Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Above & Beyond and Gareth Emery.
Described by DJ mag as the "go-to man" for the kind of progressive enriched trance that you'd find if you crossed the melodies of Above & Beyond with the backing tracks of Digweed, well - it's easy to see why Ad has been hand-picked to support some of the biggest names in the dance music, including Calvin Harris and Paul Oakenfold. Not content with smashing the dance floors at key UK venues like Ministry of Sound, Brown has toured his unique sound across India, Indonesia, Russia and all over mainland Europe, whilst still finding time to headline festivals like Burnout and fill a 2 week residency at Shanghai's infamous M1NT Club.
Ad's influence and style stretches far beyond the productions he's masterminded and the remixes for the likes of Kylie Minogue, Usher and Tinchy Stryder that his fingerprints can be found all over. A truly international force on the music scene with releases on Armada, Slinky, Hope, Garuda and of course, Black Hole.
His flawless debut artist album, "Something For The Pain", (30 months in the making and condensed from over 100 demos) surpassed all expectation by delivering an ensemble of killer tracks and ethereal collaborations with the likes of Hannah Ray, Kerry Leva and Antonia Lucas.
More than just a DJ or a producer, Ad Brown is an artist truly in the moment, whose work promises to make you take a step back and wonder how one man can make you re-think the entire genre.
