ADMX-17 is the name under which Adam X makes industrial music. A bit of label hopping saw him work with the legendary Hands label and his own Sonic Groove Experiments label. In 2014 he recorded Redacted with for L.I.E.S. A 12” of EBM, but taut, slow and magical. Once again, he is recording with L.I.E.S. for Coherent Abstractions, an album that has left no stone of electronic music’s far reaches unturned in creating a compelling and extensive work.

8/10 Ant Staff review, 04 November 2015
Adam ‘X’ Mitchell returns to Ron Morelli’s L.I.E.S. imprint as ADMX-71 following the ‘Redacted Files’ 12” EP. ‘Coherent Abstractions’ is his third full-length under the alias, with previous albums being released on Hands Productions and his own Sonic Groove Experiments label. If you know your history then you’ll be aware that Adam has long been an ambassador for techno music, from his roots in NYC running the Sonic Groove record store to running the label and a discography that stretches way back to 1990. He was producing industrial tinged/ EBM inspired techno music long before the current wave. For example; just check his releases on Drop Bass Network or Things To come for evidence. Basically this man lives and breathes techno. You could even say he is techno.
Generally speaking ADMX-71 productions, ‘Coherent Abstractions’ included are more downtempo than a lot of the club tracks produced as Traversable Wormhole, Adam X or Mass-X-Odus. Although these tunes are still compatible in a techno/ electro DJ set. Throughout the mood is deep, dark and futuristic created with a pristine sound palette that utilizes tension, space and repetition to conjure worlds beyond our own. From beginning to end it plays like a science fiction movie where the listener is responsible for creating their own visuals. Great stuff as always from Brooklyn’s finest. I had to pinch myself when I clocked The Guardian were hosting a stream of this record. About time this man’s work got the attention it deserves.
