Freeland Copes!

Upon relocating from Brighton, England to sunny Silverlake in LA, Adam Freeland initiated the creation of what many would argue as a departure album, yet he considers it simply another color in his already impressive and large musical palette.

Instead of his usual break-beat electro approach he's so famously renowned for, Freeland has put together the ultimate hybrid album, showcasing the roots of electronic music that he helped pioneer and the elements of rock music that he found most interesting and is inspired by. The results? If you're thinking something that sounds like Ali Love, Whitey, and Calvin Harris all rolled up into one you'd be on the right track. Now, add a ton of distortion and a side order of chaos and you've got Freeland nailed down.

Freeland's versatility and pioneering spirit s what allows him to concurrently exist as one of the most in demand DJs in the club world and as a member of a band touring the rock circuit in a van.

Cope, Freeland's new album was just released and it's already been dubbed the definitive album of Adam's career. Freeland are also crisscrossing the pond for several live dates. Here there are...
