Adam K & Frederik Mooij Look In The Mirror

Adam K (pictured, left) is selective to say the least when choosing who to produce his famed progressive sound with. Before this month the exclusivity of this club was limited to only three other producers: BT, Soha, and Kaskade--each time producing mega-hits such as Tomahawk, Twilight, and Raining, respectively.

This time he's gotten with Frederik Mooij (pictured, right), who runs Loudroom, an electro house label based out of Monterrey, Mexico, and Adam K has him on board to produce--progressive? Somehow, In A Mirror works, and this is Adam K's best work since his Soha days. This is truly no frills music, intended for club play and for festival DJs that want to take you deeper.

There are a few more songs from this duo that are in the pipeline, and Mooij is about to fly back to Canada to follow up with even more momentous work. If you dig the tune, In A Mirror is available on Beatport for purchase today.

Cooking with Adam K

Over the past few months, Canada's Adam K has delivered several outstanding tunes, including Tomahawk with BT, a collaboration with Funkagenda called Drift, and his own explosive creation, Point Out Of A Curve. The man always seems to have a new trick up his sleeve, changing up his sound with almost every release.

Today Adam is releasing a new banger on Big Fish called Crooks In The Kitchen, a track in which he openly named deadmau5 as the inspiration. It wields those iconic electro basslines and a bouncy tech house beat that would surely please the likes of Chris Lake. Be sure to follow him on Facebook and grab this release on Beatport today.

Sonic Cutter

It'll probably startle you. It might make you quite upset. Or, as it did for me, it could just rock your world. So, what's up? American EDM mainstay Brian Wayne Transeau, better known as BT, and Canada's own progressive stalwart Adam K have collaborated to bring you a track that launches a full-scale assault on what's remaining of the boundary between house and trance.

Tomahawk, first debuted by Armin van Buuren on Universal Religion 5, is a true cross-genre pollinator, building up like a huge progressive trance tune but dropping into a beat that trance alone just can't touch. From there on out, it's a winding, grinding complextro smasher, something you'd think was straight outta the Mau5 or Porter Robinson's CD wallet. This gem is currently sitting at #1 on the trance chart at Beatport, showing just how far sounds like this are getting in today's EDM world. Grab it now for yourself, out on Armin Van Buuren's personal pet label Armind.

Professor K

Adam K is a quality name in the progressive house scene, mainly known for his huge collaboration with Kaskade and Soha called 4 AM. Also praised here at LessThan3 for his smooth vocal hit Wake Up, Toronto-based Adam Kershen has taken his sound into a dark and trancey realm this time around. Presenting Point Out of a Curve on Hotbox Digital, a name that definitely reminds me of high school algebra class.

The clever cover art for Point Out of a Curve is inspired by the TV show How I Met Your Mother, where character Barney explains the Vicky Mendoza Curve. The curve is rather simple--the hotter a girl is the more acceptable her level of craziness becomes. According to the big red point Adam K made, this tune is well past the point of where the level of "hotness" can overcome the level of crazy (i.e. this tune is insane).

Teaming up once again with his fellow Canadian Soha, the duo released a new uplifting jam Circadian Rhythm on Soha's Radj Music. This tune achieves its appeal with vocal chops and a polite piano melody. Having also gotten together with Funkagenda, the two great minds produced a tune called Drift, filled with heavy beats and an old school trance harmony. I can definitely imagine all these tunes going perfectly into a set by Michael Woods.
