Firmly planted in the riches of house music history, but neatly poised to move forward into the future, Adam Auburn has humbly dedicated his life to the music he loves. The buzz probably all began for Adam in 2004, after winning the first ever Traxsource DJ Competition, sparking a whirlwind of international attention for the East Coast native. In 2008, the ginger-bearded, house music advocate moved to Los Angeles, where he was blessed to be discovered by Insomniac, placed on display at their weekly house music event at Exchange, and ultimately the main stage at Nocturnal Wonderland, Escape from Wonderland, and EDC Week Las Vegas. Auburn’s unique versatility as a DJ has allowed him to share the stage with a range of Artists as wide as his love for dance music – including everyone from Kaskade, to John Digweed, Knife Party, Diplo, TJR, Sander Van Doorn, Oliver Heldens, Maceo Plex, Maya Jane Coles, The Martinez Brothers, Hot Since 82, Claude Von Stroke, MK, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Louie Vega and so many more since first awkwardly attempting to mix Michael Jackson b/w Prince on his first pair of turntables in 1999.
Auburn’s deep love of house music can not only be found in the infectious energy that resonates from his DJ Performances, but also through the award winning events his production company, Auburn Events, has put on for over 10 years (Afternoon Delight, Soul & Tonic, Departure, Balance, Sonic Soul // “Top 10 LA Club Nights” – LA Weekly // “5 Best Miami Daytime Events” – Mixmag // “101 Best Nights Out in America” – SPIN Magazine). In 2014, Adam began working as the Director of Marketing & Entertainment at Exchange LA (Winner: “Best Dance Club” – LA Weekly // “Top 100 Clubs in the World” – DJ Mag), continuing to do whatever he can help the house music scene grow on the west coast, and push the music he loves forward into the future.
