Influenced by producers like Tiësto and Skrillex, Canada's Adventure Club introduced themselves with a series of successful remixes in the early 2010s before focusing on their own material which blended the sounds of their inspirations, offering a mix of slick EDM and floor-rumbling dubstep. Subsequent releases like 2013's Calling All Heroes and 2016's full-length Red//Blue helped establish the duo within the global electronic community.
Montreal natives Christian Srigley and Leighton James first met in high school where they played in a pop-punk band together. Eventually shifting into electronic music, they introduced their Adventure Club project in 2011 finding some success with dubstep remixes for acts like Brand New, Thrice, and Young Jeezy.
As a live act they toured across North America in 2012 with no official product yet available, while 2013 saw them land gigs at the Ultra festivals in both Miami and Seoul, South Korea. That same year they dropped their debut EP, Calling All Heroes, featuring guest spots from vocalist Yuna and EDM producer the Kite String Tangle. The song "Wonder" featured the latter and hit Canada's Top 40. Their full-length debut, Red//Blue, arrived in late 2016 and included appearances by Delaney Jane, DJ DallasK, and the electro-pop duo Sondar. Though most active with their own material, they still occasionally remixed other artists like Kehlani and Virtual Self over the next few years. "MakeDamnSure," a 2019 collaboration with Modern Machines and Saint Slumber, was followed a few months later by "Next Life" with Crankdat and Krewella. ~ David Jeffries
