Boomkat Product Review:
Pivotal NYC techno DJ and producer Adam X marks his 50th birthday with a glut of brutalist industrial thuggery for his patrons at LI.E.S.
Dropping some 30 years since he broke thru in the New York warehouse rave scene, following the lead of Frankie Bones, Adam X keeps it hard and uncompromising tae fuck on this celebratory barrage as ADMX-71 - ’71 being his year of birth. ‘The Aging Process’ is his 3rd album under this guise and first ADMX-71 delivery since 2017. All the numbers checked, he gets down to some really crude and shark-eyed business for the rave boneheads, pulling no punches with the recoiling kicks of ‘Catch Me If You Can’ and Vainio-esque level of electronic atavism in ‘Speaking With Telepathy’, while properly rolling it off the bone in ‘Atlantis Rising’, and showing why Vatican Shadow is so enamoured with his sound on the trampling stepper ‘Leading The Way’, with echoes of his Traversable Wormhole tekkers in ’The Code.’
