Just by reinventing himself, and bringing forth the kind of music he wanted to hear in his favourite club - a stripped down, sci-fi-industrial sound that crosses genres - Adam X got the scene to sit up and take notice, rising up not from obscurity but with it. And true to his alias, he did it all within a short space of time, in (inter)stellar fashion.
While Kaye (Darker Than Wax) may be a scene stalwart from back in the day, he remains a key innovator today with new toys and projects constantly adding to his repertoire and bag of tricks. Catch him perform an exclusive live set exploring a techier side just for Midnight Shift. Watch his 'lil teaser video 'Control Shift' here for a clue.
Ciara returns; Felix da Housecat's newest drop after almost half a decade; Four Tet gets house-ier; Black Butter Records' string of stellar releases with future house proponents Kid Kidnap and Gorgon City plus my pick of the month from the label's 19-year-old signee, Joel Compass; also, a censored music video. Damn, April. You're good.

Read on to find out more about him and listen to his promo mix before his performance at the Midnight Shift Label Showcase on 13 April 2013 featuring Deetron.
