A passionate collector, dedicated clubber, and talented mixer with a basement cache sound of evocative deep house, disco and downbeat grooves, Adam Swain has had a tremendous few years educating Brisbane clubbers on the sounds from down below. Swain’s history sits deep in jazz, hip hop, soul, techno and deep house influences, and his productions have developed a left of centre downbeat groove that neatly occupies a distinct corner of electronica and house production coming out of Brisbane at the moment.
Solid productions under his belt, tidy mixing and an inspired appreciation of house music saw him regularly rotate around all the right parties, not to mention launching his own outfit Deeparture into the fray, causing a rethink on where a proper little dancefloor can be situated. Copromoting the Subtrakt night alongside Rikki Newton, launching a label, Buxton Records, and appearances in Hong Kong and Thailand have all kept Swain busy, though we’ve locked him down to return to the place where he won Sundae’s DJ competition a little while back.
Swain is deep in the pocket of Brisbane’s house eclectic. A unique sound and genuine excitement on every approach to the decks, he is a class DJ with a firm hand on the mixer and a deep groove in the club. No doubt we are in for an exciting afternoon soaking up the business, so please join us by the river. We’ll see you in the sunshine..
