Adam owe’s his eclectic love for music to early influences showed to him by his father, who also is no stranger to the music industry. Having being exposed to such a vast array of genres, has subsequently fine tuned Adam’s ear into hearing the best out of tracks and extracting the junk. With the help and drive from fellow partner in crime Dean Paps, Adam spun his first records in 2002. We have all been treated to the edits, bootlegs and most notably; live acapella’s, in which Adam is second to none. Adam hit his straps in 2008 where he successfully polled in the highly acclaimed inthemix awards, finishing #1 in Victoria and Number #7 in Australia. Since then he has played internationally and all across Australia, having supported many of the best including Oliver Huntemann, Phil Kieran, Audiojack and Tocadisco to name a few. Music festivals are also no feat to far for Adam, having played at Kiss My Grass, Future Music Festival and main stage at Summadayze. The clever lyrics behind Orkestrated original, ‘Nightcrawler’ can also be credited to the creative mind of Bartas. Adam’s ability to play to the right tunes at the right time is the reason behind his continued success.
On the same side of the decks, we have the evergreen Dean Paps. Dean began his music journey at a young age, clocking up many hours of experience by spinning only the best of vinyls. The spearhead behind much of the production that comes along with Orkestrated, has seen many young up and coming producers mimic his style. “Give me a simplistic track with a solid bassline, and I’m set”, is synonymous with the quality that dean puts out in his tracks and sets. Having been part of the electronic music scene for over a decade, Dean has stood the test of time and established himself as one of the most sought after acts in Melbourne. Dean has an uncanny ability to turn everyday radio play into a driving club anthem. This has been seen with remixes of ‘Lollypop’, ‘Fergalicious’, and ‘Lovestoned’ that have had the most critical of crowds hanging for more. Dean is responsible for the cult track Nightcrawler, which depicts Melbourne’s unique music scene that has had crowds memorizing the track from start to finish for over a year now. Furthermore, their remix of T-Rek’s ‘Take That’ climbed to a resounding number 20 on global music store, Beatport in the Techno chart. Dean and Adam, have experienced ongoing success on the release of original track ‘Robots’, which in after less than a week has already cracked the top 50 for its genre.
These two pioneers have helped create and shape the current movement of music that is being pushed and sought after by many dj’s of different experience and tastes. You can catch them doing what the do best every week at clubs such as TFU, Billboards, LaDiDa, Fashion Lounge, Fishbowl, Orange Whip, Tramp, Circus and various other venues for special appearances.
