Adam Freeland – The Unintentional Podcast Interview December 2021

 

 

Now for something a little different.

An interview with the breakbeat guru Adam Freeland. The artist who had the world at his feet and quit the music life to literally go live in a desert. Topics covered include surviving off-grid, too many breakbeat bootlegs, why he quit DJing and is now back at it, the reverb found in Canyons and Bill Hicks.

 

 

 

 

 

Adam Freeland – LIVE @ Burning Man – 29.8.2003

 

 

Burning Man is an event focused on music, community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance held annually at Black Rock City in north western Nevada, The event derives its name from its culmination: the symbolic burning of a large wooden effigy, referred to as the Man, that occurs on the penultimate night of Burning Man, which is the Saturday evening before Labor Day.

This rare set from Adam Freeland was recorded LIVE at Burning Man back in 2003 and is a great selection of Nu Skool Breaks when Adam Freeland was in his prime as a DJ and artist.

The original files recorded levels were everywhere so i have fixed them up and mastered this mix as best i could.

Adam Freeland – LIVE @ Roxy Prague – 22.10.2004

 

 

Considered one of the pioneers of the Nu Skool Breaks sound and an innovative person in trying out new sounds Adam Freeland had many a hit back in the day. Heading the very start of the breaks scene back in the late 1990’s and playing the very most underground acts of that time Adam promoted the very early breaks music through DJing and the Breakbeat Show at Kiss FM as well as starting his own record label Marine Parade records. Never one to shy away from making white label bootleg records back then he went under various aliases, but you could always tell it was him from his particular style of music production.

This mix was recorded live back in 2004 at Roxy, Prague and contains basically all of his greatest hits, enjoy this 2hr 30min set.

Thanks to Antis for the MP3.
