Adam Freeland is not only a techno DJ producer of breakbeat music but a traveler making music wherever he goes. His most notable album is Coastal Breaks. He keeps on making music, so let's take a look at his tale of being in the music industry.

Techno DJ Producer

Adam Freeland is originally from Brighton, England. He lived in LA, where he recorded his second album called Cope. He's traveled back to Brighton and hooked up with talented remixer Kevin Beber. He produced music with Tsunami One. Kevin Beber and Freeland worked together on Freeland and several hip-hop tracks that the critics esteemed.

Freeland goes over the top as a DJ, where he remixes a variety of artist's work, and he even transcends taking a solo route by placing his full name in front. He also holds two hats as owner and creative director of Marine Parade record label, which has gone through its difficult times. After releasing Freeland's How to Fake Your Own Life, in 2010, Marine Parade successfully released material performed by Jape, ILS, Alex Metric, and Evil Nine.

Grammy Award Nomination

Previous to Freeland releasing On Tour, Tectonics, and Global Underground mix albums, his career-starter Coastal Breaks album hit the streets. FabricLive mix and Back To Mine were released as well, but in 2003 his very first artist album Now and Them arrived.

Quite possibly, Freeland's first album was swayed by sundry of styles from rock, punk, reggae, electro, hip-hop, techno, hip-hop, and dub. Listening to the single "We Want Your Soul," it very easy to see why the album became a hit. Not surprisingly, his career hit success with a Grammy Award nomination for the remix of Sarah Vaughan's trendy single "Fever."

Remixes for DJs

As anyone can imagine, the nomination brought requests for remixes to his studio's door from celebrated artists like The Doors - "Hello, I Love You" optimistic reaction from all areas of the music industry. Freeland's album Cope includes recording with Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe performing drums and Twiggy Ramirez performing bass. Guitars played by Tony Bevilacqua of Distillers, and both Joey Santiago of the Pixies and Spinnerette.

Freeland didn't lay back and enjoy his success. Instead, he continued producing by taking on a Friday night show that lasted two years airing on London's Kiss 100 FM. In 2008, Freeland chipped in his song "KIN" for the charity album Songs of Survival. He did a remix of his album Cope, releasing it through Marine Parade, his label. The remix was quite a group effort with over 20 producers. Every song featured on the double album is a diverse spectrum of electronic sounds and categories. Evil Nine, High Rankin, TC, Siriusmo, AC Slater, Gui Boratto, Marc Romboy, and Joker were a few of the producers participating in the production.


Video Game: Juiced 2

Freeland sustained his windfall with remixes and delivered the single “How To Fake Your Own Life.” He also conceived numerous tracks exclusively for the video game Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights. Other songs by Freeland were picked up and added to other video games, too.

Outside the DJ World

During an interview with Gaspar Oliveira for, Freeland told him what it is like to go from being a DJ and producer to leading and working with a band. "It's a totally different thing. It's a lot more work." laughs Freeland. "We don't, like...we don't sit in a studio with a drummer and a guitarist and a bassist and just jam. We start in the studio, making beats and sounds and layering, and then when we bring in someone..., we just build them up and add them."

Freeland continued to talk about how they record in a modular way. "It's a totally different way of thinking, obviously, because when I was DJing and producing, I was only doing stuff that works on the dance floor."

Freeland still got the dance floor in mind. "But with the artist project, it's not the primary focus. This is my excuse to do something different, to bring together all my different influences outside my fearful DJ world."

Performing New Sounds

It is quite clear that Adam Freeland is capable of retaining a broad audience and performing new sounds. You can check out his Facebook page, which appears to have regular updates if you want to find out what the future has planned for him.

      Freeland is an interesting techno DJ because he has morphed into different personalities so many times. But, he has a drive and keeps on creating, which is cool. I am not really into techno. I write about it because years ago a company asked me to write about techno. I find it interesting. Most of them do remixes and hit it big.
