Adam Freemer Interview

Ten years ago, Adam Freemer started his journey as a House DJ. He got his first major push when Danny Tenaglia asked Adam to cover for him at the "Be Yourself" parties once held weekly at Arc in New York. Adam then went on to play at such historical spots like Limelight, Filter 14, Twilo, and Soundfactory, prior to their closings. Five years later, Adam started to dive into the production side of things. In 2002 Twisted Records signed his first official release

Christopher Lawrence
It's rare that I get nervous when preparing to interview a DJ. So when it was time to talk to Christopher Lawrence, the highest ranking US DJ on DJ Magazine's influential Top 100 poll for 2004, I was a bit surprised to find myself getting anxious, realizing that Chris has sold over 250,000 CDs and flying more miles than that annually to play around the world. After listening to his new artist album "All or Nothing," his uplifting trance music was the guide for a wonderful conversation.

Clubbing in Orlando, Florida - Dragon Room, Mako's, Bliss, Parliament House
A trip to Orlando provided a perfect opportunity to visit the nightlife of a city where clubs like Visage, The Edge, Firestone, and Southern Nights first shaped my musical tastes. The emerging rave scene of the 90s at the Edge and the progressive house scene of the legendary Firestone afterhours events were groundbreaking on a national level.

Many producers get their start doing “unofficial” remixes (yam who anyone?) which later get picked up and released by a record label, thereby putting the producer on the map.
