Adrian Lux is the son of two musicians, but instead of letting his musical heritage just be a cute footnote, Adrian in fact collaborates with his mother and father making his music. As a teenage prodigy Adrian was already one of Stockholm's leading dancehall reggae DJs. The step from the most aggressive Jamaican music to the spacey sentimental pop that Adrian makes into dance music today could seem huge. Although for the children of the new dance music generation this is perfectly natural. It's all about dealing with strong feelings through dance. With one foot in the suburb where he grew up and the other in the pulsating Stockholm night life - Adrian Lux let’s both worlds collide through his music. He approaches dance music the same way he approaches the tempting treats of the night, always with careless curiosity. Adrian loves creating sounds that could be described both as minimal and grandiose. His music has its foundation on the dance floor, but often ends up in the air. Sometimes it even passes one or two teenage rooms on its way up there. Adrian Lux has been blowing up Stockholm- and European dance floors for over three years. What kind of club or crowd has never mattered, be it techno, house, or an indie event. Adrian Lux's two singles "Strawberry" and "Can't Sleep" echoes the dream of the perfect Swedish summer and the first steps of innocent teen love. But you can also sense a more serious, grown tone, originating in Adrian's experience moving from place to place, from genre to genre. And it's always there you will find Adrian's music, in the step between. "Teenage Crime" has gained international success topping the Australian charts and winning support from such artists as Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Pete Tong, Judge Jules, Ferry Corsten, Boy George, and more!
