ANTONY ADAM (Metz / France)
INFO BOOKING- Contact: Music Factory
Hailing from Metz, a town nestled in the Eastern corner of France, Antonys experiences in radio at the age of 15 allow him to get his hands on a pair of decks for the first time. After treading the route of a 'traditional' resident DJ, the wave of acid house reaches France in the late 80s and in 1990 he
organises his first rave, the 'Atlantis' in Nancy .
The electronic music scene is in its infancy, Antony spins at some of the first biggest parties in the south of France alongside Liza N'Eliaz and Olive de Marseille amongst others (NeuroRave, Euphoria)1993-1994 He obtains a residency at the Exes club in Sarralbe, where he officiates for three years, continuing to mix at countless other parties in France.
In 1997 he opens the 'Warehouse' record shop in Metz with Natik and Olivier. The same team regularly throw parties in the Moselle region (at the Terminal Export in Nancy, LAfter club in Amnèville, L Etoile in Metz).
Antony's first gig at Automatik at the Rex club (Paris) alongside Colin Dale in 1999 earned him a residency at the legendary Rex almost immediately. During the residency hes played alongside international DJs C1, Slam, Takkyu Ishino, DJ Bone , Dave Clarke , Mr C... His brand of festive techno covers techno, tech house and electro, and along with an impeccable technique he soon earns the respect of Automatik clubbers and other Parisian promoters.
In 2002, Automatiks promoter, Fabrice Gadeau, asks Antony to mix the first Automatik compilation. Unbound by the constraints of a label in his choice of tracks, Antony crafts a superb techno/ electro selection, (including tracks by Johannes Heil, Vitalic, Oxia, Scan X, Slam, Octave One ). The compilation gains respect from the French music press and makes the Top 50 international releases of 2002 (Trax magazine).
Antonys first release on Ozone records the Full Session EP is well received by the English music press.. Muzik calling it Dark, fucked up future-tech.
In 2002 he signs to Goodlife, the Grenoble label run by Alex, The Hacker and Oxia, and releases Spleen Attitude (compiled June 2002) and Magician EP (GL15 December 02).
