Over the course of the last two decades, Detroit's ADULT. (Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller) have been perhaps one of the most fervent proponents of a dark, dance aesthetic that harnesses the perverse aspects of the late '70s analog dystopian post-modernism.
Every song the duo constructs is a strenuous exercise in claustrophobia, anxiety and bleak humor expressed through raw synthesizers, ridged beats and the haunted voice of Kuperus. The melodies twist off their tonal centers and grind each other in dirty, unspeakable ways. ADULT. have remixed the likes of LIARS, John Foxx, and Death in Vegas and have released seven studio albums to date. Labels include: DAIS Records, MUTE Records, Ghostly International, Thrill Jockey and their own label founded in 1995 Ersatz Audio. They also released a live album in 2017 on Third Man Records. Their 2017 "Detroit House Guests" album features six guest collaborators: Dorit Chrysler (NY Theremin Society), Shannon Funchess (Light Asylum), Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (Lichens), Michael Gira (Swans), Lun•na Menoh (Les Sewing Sisters) and Douglas McCarthy (Nitzer Ebb). Their latest album THIS BEHAVIOR was released September 2018 on Dais Records.
