Adam Wray is eyeing up your name ring To speak generally about footwork in 2014 is reductive at best – about as useful as taking your ‘09 Civic to represent the entire field of automotive design. What began in the late 1990s as an off-shoot of ghetto house has grown into a subgenre with tremendous […]
Adam Wray is recruiting Andrew Wiggins for Team OVO PARTYNEXTDOOR don’t get no respect. His self-titled debut was as promising as anything released last year but got relatively little love. His production is bold and adventurous, but critics focus on his conventional vocals. It may be tough to keep napping on him, though – he’s […]
Adam Wray only needs two things: good friends and a good flask. On paper, the Songs From Scratch series sounds like a bad idea – there are so, so many ways for arranged, sneaker-sponsored collaborations to go wrong. You have to hand it to adidas and Yours Truly, though, because the experiment has yielded as […]

As far as Chicago dance labels go, the ’90s belonged to Dance Mania. Run by Ray Barney, owner of Barney’s Records, it fed the streets with a steady stream of 12″s for over a decade, and is responsible in no small part for the birth of ghetto house. After a decade of inactivity, the label […]
Uno, Dos, Cups….Adam Wray Brooklyn’s GODMODE continues to deliver the ruckus. Among its latest offerings: two tracks from 19 year-old Shamir Bailey, hailing from Las Vegas. Bailey’s got a million dollar voice – lithe, rangy, unique, and deceptively powerful. The first tune, “If It Wasn’t True,” is weapons-grade dance floor material. From steady kick to […]
Adam Wray is starring in a reboot of Lethal Weapon. We love to compare rap to sports – it’s a cheap but effective rhetorical device. That said: Young Thug is on his vintage Pedro Martinez this year, establishing dominance with boundless style and ruthless efficiency. 1017 Thug, his first release under the Brick Squad umbrella, […]
Adam Wray is flexing like a young Carlos Delgado.  Sometimes it feels as though there’s nothing left to be digitized. Bootlegs, dubplates, cassette-only releases – we have done an excellent job of reproducing and sharing that which was not intended to be reproduced and shared. Of course, there are dark spots on the map – […]
Adam Wray will sell you a flux capacitator for the right price. Four Tet aka Kieran Hebden is on one hell of a run. Since mid 2011, he’s been releasing a steady stream of original tunes, remixes, and collaborations that have cemented him as one of dance music’s most consistent and inventive producers. He’s one […]
Adam Wray wrote this from the cloak room at Berghain. Whether you liked Yeezus or not, you must admit that the circumstances of its creation are compelling. Rick Rubin checking in in the fourth quarter to play reducer. Daft Punk offering the grimiest sounds they’ve put to tape in over 15 years. It’s the youth, […]
Adam Wray is in Berlin. As S. Combs once said: you can hate him now. It’s a wonderful time to be an avid footwork fan. As the 15-year plus genre matures and its popularity grows globally, its core artists are pushing the sound upwards and outwards while settling deeper into their own unique styles. DJ […]
