Local Talent #2.5: More Adam S

Posted in DJs, Good Shit, Local Talent, mixtapes, Orlando with tags , , , , , on November 27, 2008 by Ben Badio

Mr. Smith decided to release a masterpiece mix AFTER being blogged on Hands Up. Is this some sort of ploy by Adam to get blogged about TWICE?

Well…it worked.

Adam’s new mix, entitled “Camelsutra” is comprised of rock, funk and folk classics from the past, perfectly blended into a 41-minute time warp. It’s got everything from James Brown to The Stone Roses. Readers of Hands Up: I strongly suggest you download this and add Adam S on myspace. Highly Recommended.

NOTE: No one hands you a script when you go to see a movie, so I don’t feel obligated to put up a tracklisting. If you know whats coming it won’t be any fun!

Hear and see Adam perform live every Saturday @ Redlight. All the info you need is on the flyers. Pay close attention to the funny dress code.

Local Talent #2

It’s been quite a while since I made a post under the “Local Talent” heading, mostly because I feel like Orlando already knows about the few talented DJs in its relatively small scene. It brings me great pleasure to blog about this particular Orlando DJ; This one goes against the grain.

Meet Adam S

Adam Smith, Elusive DJ Extraordinaire

You may have heard of Adam S under a variety of names such as “The Invisible Hand” and “Famethrowa” but it’s quite likely that you haven’t heard of him under ANY names, because this guy manages to remain under the radar. Adam is a guy who would rather be heard than seen (or scene), as evident in these two tracks.

Eagles of Death Metal – Wannabe in LA Remix

Sorry, but we had to take this one down 😦

Beastie Boys vs. Daft Punk – Intergalactic Robot
