Because of Adem’s mindful attention to research and detail of EDM, he set the tone for Nu-Skool and Tribal Breakbeat style music in New Mexico, back in the olden days of ’99. At the age of 18 He landed his first residency at local after hours hot spot, The Dragons Empire in Albuquerque, NM, because of how well he held it down with the inner selekta. On a weekly basis Adem captivated his audiences with a coined sound of funky chunky mixing styles all the while building up a fierce reputation in the southwest EDM scene. In 2003, Family Moons Collective invited Adem to join their DJ Roster and it made such an impact on his career that he started to produce his own music.
So far his tracks have been released on the Dub Animals label and there are many more for free download his Soundcloud page (@ademjoel).
Adem’ live dj sets are so powerful and journey inspiring that he has been graced with the opportunity to share his musical gifts at multiple music festivals in the U.S. such as Arise Festival in Colorado, Firefly Gatherings and The Gem and Jam Festival in Arizona, and Symbiosis Gatherings in Northern California.
Since Early 2012 Adem and his creative crew called the Red Earth Collective have been hosting a monthly gathering in Santa Fe, NM called Sounds Like PRIMAL!!! which is geared towards the gathering of Activated Artist of music, visionary painting, dance/movement and interactive art coming together to express themselves under one roof or under the stars in hopes to create a sacred space for patrons to dance and channel what it is that makes them feel abundant in individual creativity.
