Adanowsky's world is a brightly "Technicolored" one, full of upbeat '80s style synth pop meets '10s dancefloors. ADA is the artist's new album releasing April 1st via Everloving.

As the son of Alejandro Jodorowsky, Adan Jodorowsky had the advantage of running in creative circles early in life. James Brown instructed him in his first dance lesson and George Harrison gave him his first guitar. Jodorowsky learned his lessons well, bringing soul to his electro pop dance tunes. It’s all about pleasure on ADA. “I wanted something sweaty and gross. I wanted to feel the drugs on this album. I’m not a drug addict at all but I wanted people to feel that same kind of high in the music.”

Life & Love is a barn burning smoker of a record that’s simply irresistible. Now, we’re going to step assign and let Hans Chew tell you about the creation of the album.
