While most of his peers have spent years perfecting their look and brand, Big Once has spent that time in the lab. With a studio full of records and massive digital library, Big Once’s fast-paced, dynamic sets touch on every genre imaginable; all mixed with the precision, dexterity, and programming of a U.S. Champion. In a scene where anyone with a laptop and some software can claim to be a DJ, it is Once’s world-beating turntablist skills, unique live remixes, and energetic stage show that set him apart from others. These qualities have afforded Once to perform alongside everyone from the Z-Trip to Roy Ayers, headline clubs from Chicago to Los Angeles, direct the Vocalo 89.5 FM DJ collective, record with legends like Pete Rock, and teach at the University of Chicago.

Defying lyrical gravity, beats serve as ADaD’s playground, rocking verses with a distinct musical prowess that has got the music industry on lock. Transforming his flow into his own instrument, the rising artist’s acumen behind the mic resonates an on-time swagger and compelling rhyme schemes that take unexpected direction–proving ADaD’s inexplicable gift and raw talent.
Repping Chicago’s south side, ADaD is also member of Eurolythimics, but is quickly changing the game as a solo artist coming into his own. Dubbed the next hip-hop hopeful, he thematically brings fans back to self by preaching an acceptance of who you are. Executing wordplay that mainstream hip-hop compensates for overproduction and posturing, ADaD shares stages with some of the largest names in hip-hop with party-style performances never having to compromise his art or message.
