The Swiss Adrians have been nothing short of a phenomenon since joining forces in 2008. They have released on a who’s who of the world’s finest labels including their native city’s Cityfox, Brooklyn’s Wolf + Lamb, and, of course, Solomun’s mighty Diynamic, of which they are a seminal member of the family (and thus, no strangers to the city of Amsterdam).
