Jordan Brunt aka Acaddamy grew up in the quaint surfside town of Gerringong, far from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan club land. ‘I’ve always been around music’ says Jordan, thumbing through his record collection; an eclectic mix of classic alternative and roots hip hop. The young producer admits that after growing up playing ‘real instruments’ that ‘dance music really took hold’ when his forward thinking mother purchased him his first Ministry of Sound Annual CD compilation and he was blown away by the deep and emotional vibe of Booka Shade.
He immediately packed away his instruments and started experimenting with digital production, forging a mature blend of deep groovy bass lines, classic UK house kicks and samples into his own unique sound. He reworked a number of tracks to use in his DJ sets including bootlegs of Rudimental and Peggy Sue which killed it on the dance floor at legendary venues all over the East coast including the Chinese Laundry, Ivy and Trinity Bar, cementing his future as an in demand DJ and electronic music producer. It didn’t take much time before there was a real turning point in his career; another remix, his rework of Green Velvet – Everybody Wants went on to become official, giving the nod by techno’s godfather that he was one of the freshest new artists in the house scene and one to look out for.
Acaddamy’s emotive, good-times vibe has since become his trademark, with punters and industry elite eagerly anticipating his next move.
