Mysterious producer KSHMR (as in Kashmir) exploded onto the scene with his first release, “Megalodon.” Orchestral, hard-hitting, extravagant — his tracks come straight out of a music festival directed by Steven Spielberg. Since then, his Beatport releases “Burn,” “Secrets” and “Karate” have all peaked at #1 overall and quickly garnered him a rapidly growing fan base. KSHMR is painting a world for his audience; each production is a brushstroke and, while he’s only just begun, his vision is clearly one of epic proportions.
Firmly planted in the riches of house music history, but neatly poised to move forward into the future, Adam Auburn has 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 events at Exchange, and ultimately the mainstage at Nocturnal Wonderland, Escape From Wonderland, and EDC Week Las Vegas. Auburn’s unique versatility as a DJ has allowed him to play alongside a range of Artists as wide as his love for dance music—including everyone from Kaskade to Diplo, Knife Party, TJR, Oliver Heldens, Duke Dumont, John Digweed, Maceo Plex, Maya Jane Coles, the Martinez Brothers, Hot Since 82, Claude VonStroke, MK, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Louie Vega, and so many more across 15 years of DJing. Auburn's deep love of house music can be found not only in the infectious energy that resonates from his DJ performances, but also through the award-winning house music events his production company, Auburn Events, has put on for over 10 years—including Afternoon Delight (#2 Pool Party in the US—Thrillist 2015). In 2014, Adam began working as the Director of Marketing & Entertainment at Exchange LA, continuing to do whatever he can help push the music he loves forward into the future.
