Adam Kent (aka Drogo) was born in Durban, South Africa. He started clubbing at the age of 15, going to Plymouth’s Scream nights at The Warehouse and was heavily influenced at the time by the likes of Sasha, John Digweed and Carl Cox who all made regular appearances there.
Adam got his first decks shortly afterwards and started playing gigs at Plymouth’s Dance Academy, Sound Factory and Conservatory Bar. A move to Bristol for University led to gigs at Cafe Blue, The Rock and Bar Latino. After a brief sabbatical he got back into DJing starting with a monthly podcast on soundcloud, really pushing that deep, techy, twisted sound he has such a keen ear for. The podcast gets hundreds of listens and great feedback from all over the world every month.
Regular gigs at Bristol’s legendary Empathy night have led to him becoming resident alongside Jim Rivers and head-honcho Stuart Wilkinson. The residency has seen Adam playing alongside the likes of Darren Emerson, Jamie Anderson, Jody Wisternoff, Quivver and Henry Saiz. Other recent gigs in and around Bristol include Carl Cox’s Revolution night when it touched down at Bristol InMotion, a mammoth 5 hour long set at the See No Evil Block Party alongside numerous appearances at some of Bristol’s finest underground house and techno nights.
Adam has had a number of tracks signed both as himself and under the Mariana collaboration for labels such as Artform, Pro B Tech, Looq and Baroque.
Adam’s first under his new Drogo guise is forthcoming on CitySeven Records.
