Throughout the 90s and into the first half of the millennium, the Sonic Groove retail outlet was one of the top techno record retailers for DJs & vinyl collectors across the world.

The Sonic Groove team also took part in organizing many techno events, including the legendary Storm Rave that started in 1991. Storm Rave was the first all-techno warehouse parties organized on the East Coast of America and the line-ups included then up-and-coming artists from Sven Vath and Richie Hawtin to Damon Wild with the attendance in the thousands.

In 1995 Adam launched the Sonic Groove record label, which he continues to run solely on his own. Releases thus far come from a wide array of artists including highly prolific names such as Kevin Saunderson, Dave Clarke, Oliver Lieb and Abe Duque to lesser known but equally talented artists such as Orphx, Realmz, Dasha Rush and Richard Hinge. Adam has a lengthy discography of solo & collaborative music releases dating back to 1990, appearing on many famous recording labels over the last two decades such as CLR, Prologue, Peacefrog, Magnetic North, Wax Trax, Sativae, Scandinaviav just to name a few.

At the present time Adam X calls East Berlin his home base, where most of his time is spent traveling across the world to perform.
