Sidestepping the thinning membrane of today's inflated trends, Afriqua (aka AdamLongman Parker) forgoes specialization in any particular genre, all the while achievingequilibrium between youthful inventiveness and a mature artistic philosophy. Parkerdemonstrated instrumental dexterity at a young age through his studies of classicalpiano, skills which would translate to DJing and turntablism at age 10.While studying piano at the Interlochen Arts Academy, Parker quickly took an interest tomusic production, which would complement his classical studies a few years later atThe Royal Academy of Music in London.With a fresh awareness of the global electronic music scene, and an unyielding passionfor discovery, Parker has settled into a constant creative flow living in Berlin. Informedequally by the minimal, unrefined hip-hop of the early 2000s in Virginia and the thematicexploration of 20th century composition, his work has continually increased in its scopeand influence. His musicality and flair for performance translate to dynamic DJ sets thathave captivated dancefloors worldwide.
