Born Adam Baker, son of a musically talented father and artist mother he was destined to be a great musician. Growing up listening to David Bowie, Eric Clapton and Thomas Dolby shaped his love for music at a young age. At the age of 16 Adam first heard Drum and Bass at a rave and wanted to replicate the energy and excitement he witnessed first hand. It wasn’t until years later when he had the opportunity to express it first by DJing. At the age of 20, he bought his first set of turntables and a mixer. Quickly learning and understanding the techniques of mixing music, a year later he was given the opportunity to play out. He knew all along that he wanted to create his own music and that being a DJ wouldn’t be enough to set himself apart from rest of the world. Little did he know, that a chance meeting in a neighborhood record store would launch his career as a producer. He didn’t stop at Drum and Bass but ventured into Hip Hop, R&B, Techno, House and everything in between. He doesn’t believe in pigeonholing himself in one genre and always produces music by feeling and bpm. Currently he is working on multiple releases with Robert Manos in many different genres. Keep an eye out for him and these songs.

Music has been a major force in Rafael Salvador’s life from a very young age. A New Jersey native, his earliest musical memories include breakdancing in preschool and being exposed to jazz through his uncle’s tape collection. His roots as a DJ date back to Christmas 1994 when he was given a pair of turntables, a mixer and an eclectic selection of records. Going on to pursue DJin’g as a hobby and collecting Hip Hop and House records throughout his high school years, the turning point in Salvador’s musical journey came in 2000 when he discovered Jungle Drum & Bass while attending college in Philadelphia. He later returned to the New York City area and interned at the Hip Hop’s revered Fat Beats Records, where he contributed to album marketing campaigns and daily operations. This proved to be a valuable experience, as he gained insight into the business of music and met many of the artists that influenced him as a teen.
Having acquired a wealth of knowledge about music in both the creative and business aspects, Salvador is now playing a role in keeping New York City’s Jungle Drum & Bass scene vibrant and future-oriented. He co-founded Natural Selection in June 2011 and quickly established it as one of the city’s premier Jungle Drum & Bass parties. He has also stepped onto the DJ circuit recently, eager to share the music he’s collected over the past 20 years. An avid crate digger with an eclectic taste, his diverse sets are aimed to make you move.

Hailing from Brooklyn N.Y., T.R.A.C. has been very involved in many different scenes in his music career. Struck by the bug at a very young age, music has always been one of the most influential things in his life. As an MC he knows how to rock a crowd, as a lyricist he can surely put words together in a fashion, but its the art of making music where T.R.A.C. excels. Not wanting to be seen as just a rapper, he wants to be respected as a vocalist/musician and MC.
Through out his musical journey, the New York native has touched on many different genres with Hip Hop effort. On his first ’2000 feature with DJ ICUE “Next Level $hit” became an underground classic on Liquid Sky Records. The fusion of the 2 styles was seen as provocative at the time. Nonetheless, The experience of this had set the stage of what was to come in the future.
As a Konkrete Jungle resident and NYC scene supporter, T.R.A.C. has been seen performing with top tier Dj’s and artist abroad. From NYC junglist Dj’s like Odi, Dara, Soul Slinger, and LionDub to name a few, to overseas heavies like Jumpin Jack Frost, Dego (4hero), The Upbeats, Skream and within recent times was seen rocking the mic for the re-known Roni Size and the legendary DJ LTJ Bukem.
Back on the Hip Hop side of things, T.R.A.C. does what he considers “classic style Hip Hop. In love with mostly sampled sounds, he has teamed with the likes of UK legend Lewis Parker on a couple of occasions. From 2007′s Boosey n Hawks entitled “Lewis Parkers’ Home Grown Hip Hop” to Lp’s more recent releases such as Dangerous Adventures.
In 2009, a friend handed him a copy of an album called Visioneers. A compilation of very well orchestrated covers that were done by UK (4hero) Legend Marc Mac. Being inspired from the album , T.R.A.C. went and searched for him via the internet. After a couple of conversations a new relationship was made firing the BK MC into new grounds. The tandem are 3 projects deep with music including his well received 2011 Omniverse/BBE debut album “The Network”. Marcs amazing soundscapes topped with T.R.A.C.’s vocals have been reviewed by critics on blogsites and magazines as “addictive” and “refreshing” to Hip Hop, garnishing 6stars in a Euro magazine(Oct OE4).
