Adam F. was born in Liverpool and raised in the center of the burgeoning local Merseyside music scene of the 70s. The British multi-hyphenate has built a stellar, transcontinental reputation as an award-winning, genre-crossing artist, music producer, film composer, international star dj, record label owner and industry spokesperson.
A self-taught musician, Adam is an accomplished pianist and guitarist. His unstoppable music career began in the early 90s. He cites jazz-fusion and the 80s British electronica that was the foundation of MTV, as his main influences. MTV soon aired several of his music videos. Adam's praised debut "Colours" featured the Top 20 singles "Circles" and "Music In My Mind" and earned him a British MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Award for Best Album (MOBO is England's equivalent to an American Grammy).
After an 18-month tour with a live band in support of his soon to be RIAA-certified Gold record, he was enlisted to demonstrate his turntable skills at major music festivals and top nightclubs around the globe. He is featured in the legendary documentary of the seminal DJ collective, the Metalheadz. Adam exploded into the mysterious stratosphere of high-paid, high-profile international superstar DJs, appearing on magazine covers television and radio shows worldwide, including his own Saturday night mix show on London's KISS 100FM.
His versatility led to Adam working with artists from David Bowie to Missy Elliott and The Pet Shop to Destiny's Child. His urban soundtrack "KAOS: The Anti-Acoustic Warfare" (EMI/UK) saw Adam producing hip hop stalwarts De La Soul, LL Cool J, Beenie Man, M.O.P., Redman, etc. for whom Adam composed and scored music for a 70 piece orchestra and 64 member choir to create the anthemic hit "Smash Sumthin'" (also featured in EA Games "Def Jam Vendetta"). The collaboration with LL resulted in the #1 Billboard-charted single "The G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time)". The song served as the title single from LL's eponymous multi-platinum release which went on to ultimately become the rapper's first #1 album. It also appeared on Adam's album. Tim Westwood astounded listeners by rewinding and replaying the song an unprecedented 5 times in his Radio One mix show. Filled with cinematic, testosterone driven beats and daring live instrumentation and despite its ill fated released date of 9/11, critics worldwide applauded "KAOS". In addition to a #1 Billboard Platinum Album, Adam's achievements include 4 RIAA-certified Gold discs, 12 UK Top 40 Singles, #1 Drum & Bass single, NME Top 5 Producer and #1 UK Hip Hop Producer.
Adam is a film composer. His credits include "Ali G Indahouse" (FilmFour/ Studio Canal/ Working Title). He also created a full orchestral score for WWF/WCW Champion Wrestling. Adam owns his own music publishing company and is up for election to the Board of Directors of the PRS/MCPS Music Society in London.
Adam co-founded and co-owns Breakbeat KAOS; a leading electronica/drum n bass indie record label with each release landing on the UK's Top 20; and DogsonAcid.com, the Internet's most trafficked electronic music website (as many as 40 million hits per month).
Adam has finally fulfilled his longtime dream of forming a rock band; he is singer/songwriter/front man/producer of the UK rock band Malpractice (www.malpracticeuk.com). Several of the band's songs will be featured in upcoming U.S. films and network television shows.
Recently, Adam produced "Rush The Security", the lead single from Redman's upcoming Def Jam release, licensed to Activision's "True Crime: New York City" multi-platform video game. He has been in front of the camera on music networks and award shows across the globe and in several of his own music videos; now Adam is adding acting to his list of accomplishments as negotiations are under way for him to appear in the his first film role.
