Kid Kryptic aka Adam John

Sooo I 1st found out about this amazing artist Adam John aka Kid Kriptic from my wifey Jenna, who jus so happens to be an amazing fashion designer. She is a whole nother post herself, but you can check her designs by googling RUSTED SOL. 

When I heard Adam’s glitchy dubby goodness I was like, “Ohhhh YESsssss!”  LOVIN’ IT! A few weeks later Wifey & I ran into him @ Shake That A$$ ft. our very own Melotronix & my favoritest DJ PIckster ONE. I chatted Adam up a bit, and he was very kewl & down to earth, which is exactly my cup of tea. I am so excited & lucky to be working on a future project with this amazing producer and DJ.

{ Adam John is a pioneer of deep evolving bass sounds, a skillful producer as well as an advocate of filth in the southwest music scene and a figure of movement in the local electronic arts community. He not only creates slashing beats and wild rhythms for destroying dance floors, but is also committed to supporting fellow artists of similar musical minds through his label Theoretic Records, one of the first drum and bass, dubstep and glitch labels in Arizona.

Perhaps better known by his DnB alias Kid Kryptic, Adam first released his disturbing brand of stuttering stomps on the notorious darkstep/breakcore label Fear Records in 2002. Its success was soon followed by material for Killing Sheep, Hardline, Evol Intent Recordings and the “Get Up” bootleg through Camouflage UK. By founding his own label, Theoretic Records, Adam was then able to promote local talent as well as his own versatile style, keeping the electronic music artists of the area motivated, inspired, and producing dark and disturbing music.

Soon Adam dove into other bass-heavy genres such as dubstep and glitch hop, finding a world of fresh sounds on the more experimental end of the EDM spectrum. Adam currently has releases with a variety of hard-hitting indie labels around the nation, including Muti Music, Tuff Love Dubs, Filthy Digital, Shift Recordings,, and Zardonic Recordings.

With a new passion for the realm of the glitch and the stomp, Adam now dips his fingers in a myriad of bass-driven genres to create an eclectic, signature sound of bruising forcefulness, haunting chords and lush sonic backdrops. His music fits in well in this world of stuttering beats and explosions of bass, with sawtooth basslines and 8-bit sounds that are hashed together in a slight neurofunk sauce and delivered with an edge that is more hard than hippie..} ~
