September 22nd marks the return of Adam X in BASIS, as well of the debut of Domenico Crisci and Parrish Smith.
Adam X is a pioneer in the scene. In 1990, Adam established a record store called Sonic Groove Records, together with his brother. This record store was considered one of the best record stores of the world throughout the years ' 90 and'00. Sonic Groove eventually grew into an organisation that organized techno parties in large (illegal) warehouses on the East coast of America. In ' 95 Adam started a label with the same name, "Sonic Groove", that nowadays still is seen as a leading label in the techno scene. With releases of Kevin Saunderson, Dave Clarke and meanwhile Dasha Rush, Orphyx, Monolith and Blush Response. As an artist, Adam X is also indispensable. With the biggest releases on his label and the coolest shows on the sickest spots worldwide, it’s a fact that Adam X is a legend.
Domenico Crisci will finally make his debut at BASIS. The scene loves Domenico, who usually performs at Reaktor, but is now debuting in Utrecht. The Italian Domenico leaves the best impressions during his shows. As a producer, he has impressive releases on labels like L. I. E. S, Jealous God, Semantica and on his own Summa Cum Laude. Domenico's sets are uncompromising and an expertly and eclectic mix of acid, techno and electro. After his great shows at Unpolished and Katharsis-events, we are happy to welcome him at BASIS.
Currently, there is a lot happing around the young and talented Parrish Smith. He just had a great release on the label of Dekmantel UFO and he’s being pushed by Dekmantel at many of their events like Dekmantel Festival & Dekmantel Selectors. In addition, Parrish has played a great opening set at Unpolished where most of the techno-population had the chance to admire his sound. Both in his productions as in his sets, his musicality is obvious. 3voor12, a Dutch multimedia platform for alternative pop, chose his show during Dekmantel for the top acts of the festival. The same goes for his alias/live-act, Volition Immanent. A live act he performs with Mark van der Maat. On September 22nd, he will be doing an extended opening set.
