Adriatic developed a distinct sound by making a whole lot out of just a little. Coming from a multi-ethnic midwestern background, he grew up in the era where the bridge between hip-hop and pop music became more intentional. By blending analog synthesizers, sp-202 sampling and live instrumentation, Adriatic has become the uncontested architect of Neo Trip-Hop. Adriatic became the youngest performer to play their original music at Soundset, the world’s largest Hip-Hop festival, in 2014. Without a doubt, Adriatic plans to keep things in motion through the new decade.
Adriatic has made music and/or performed alongside Myka 9, Abstract Rude, Kristoff Krane, Onry Ozzborn, Poliça, Milo, Mickey Avalon, Montana of 300, Chester Watson, Toki Wright, Dosh, Ghostband, Jada Brown, Pseudoubt, Origami Bones and many others.
