You may know him for his role as onethird of the stateoftheart pop trio ‘The Acid’ , as a young A&R in the 90’s for the legendary techno label R&S records, a Grammy nominated producer, his counter culture hit record’ We Want Your Soul’ or as founder of Marine Parade records.
However, Adam is perhaps best known and most experienced a DJ. 10 years resident at London’s legendary ‘Fabric’, he’s played almost every club and festival worth mentioning on the planet, and yet, you still never know what you’ll hear at a Freeland gig.
If you listen to his legendary BBC Essential mixes, his eclectic ‘Back to Mine’ compilation or his recent deep electronic mixes on Soundcloud, it’s obvious that his musical passion runs way deeper than passing dancemusic genres and trends.
“I’ll happily sidestep being linked to any scene, sound or expectation” he explains. “ Without compromise, I want to play and make music from my heart, that of quality, depth and integrity. From my experience, I have learned that when I listen to my heart and play the music that I want to hear, there is always a crowd of like minds who will really appreciate and feel it too”.
In reaction to electronic music exploding into a mainstream throwaway pop culture of ever decreasing attention spans, recent times have seen Freeland take his sound into deeper territory. “In a world full of disposability, I don’t even want to try to compete,” he explains. “ Without compromise, I want to play music from my heart, that of quality, depth and integrity. From my experience, when I play the music that I want to hear, there is always a crowd who will really appreciate that”.
