Adin

Ajdin Begovic, aka ADIN, spearheads the forefront of a flurry of talented techno producers to come out of the Netherlands. But unlike a large wealth of his native counterparts, Ajdin’s story has seen the DJ craft his unique sonic style through a colourful past, and amalgamation between the dark and light of his life.

Making a rapid and far-reaching impact on the electronic music scene over the course of his double-decade career, it was the move from Ajdin’s war-torn birthplace of Bosnia to a Rotterdam record store in his youth that marked the first stepping stone on his eventual ladder to success. Taking early inspiration from iconic producers such as Masters At Work, Roger Sanchez, and Erick Morillo, it was his dub mix of Sandy Rivera’s ‘Freak’ on Simon Dunmore’s Defected Records that was championed all over the scene.

By 2007, Ajdin had become one of the most in-demand artists in the business, touring worldwide with a schedule of more than 30 shows per month. A technical wizard on the decks, his obsession with house, techno and multiple sub-genres shone through immediately. Stepping things up a notch, it was a meeting with Pasquale Rotella that changed the course of Ajdin’s future as he switched the melodic sounds of his EDC NY set to more dark and industrial tones half-way through the performance. The brave and somewhat adventurous gamble was wholeheartedly rewarded, with Ajdin’s performance ranked as one of Rolling Stone’s “25 raviest moments of EDC.”

Always one to go with the moment rather than to meticulously plan out sets, it is this party-ready approach that saw him become a key member of Insomniac’s events early on, playing further sets at EDC Orlando, Mexico, Japan and the Las Vegas showpiece event. Now firmly established as one of Holland’s finest techno exports, Ajdin has also performed at Mysteryland, Sensation, Creamfields, Elrow, the iconic Womb Tokyo venue, Free Your Mind Festival and Free Your Mind with Sasha and John Digweed.

Having honed his craft on vinyl long before his 2004 debut in the production studio, ADIN has amassed universal plaudits via his insatiable back catalog, vibrant track selections and instinctive ability to read a crowd. Making incredible music that resonates further than just the confines of gruff dancefloor beats, Ajdin’s ADIN alias has garnered a reputation as an innovative and forward-thinking producer & DJ, fusing his driven tones with an emotional blend of melodic techno. Carving a niche signature sound which has seen the Dutch artist amass the support of the finest names in the underground scene, including Joris Voorn, Nic Fanciulli, Maya Jane Coles, Richie Hawtin, Hot Since 82, and Josh Butler, ADIN is also the founder of his own ADIN Records imprint.

With the label playing host to his sumptuous mix of warm underground music, including tracks like ‘Fargo,’ ‘Adria’, and ‘Alive’, ADIN’s infectious devotion to house and techno has found a true calling after many years spent spreading his powerful production prowess across the studio, with deep influenced records that resonate broadly with a respective nod to the producer’s past.

Diversifying his musical output through a combination of atmospheric tracks, ADIN faces 2018 and beyond with a fresh impetus, marking the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the career of the revered producer. Amassing a reputation as an important purveyor of international techno that resonates broadly, ADIN has established himself as a passionate contributor to the scene, cementing his place as one of the genre’s premiere names.
