Bondax’s evocative music seems to drift between urban sonic landscapes, avoiding classification.
Incorporating elements of post-dubstep, R&B, and garage, the Lancaster based duo craft an intimate, electronic bliss that reveals something new with each repeated play.
Despite the fact that Adam and George are still enjoying their teens, their music shimmers with a maturity and sophistication that belies their age.

In addition to their own productions, Bondax have remixed and collaborated with a wide variety of artists, including Chromeo, Star Slinger, Justin Martin, Alex Clare, Alunageorge, Seye, Rudimental, Mr Fogg and Last Japan. They also recorded mixes and podcasts for Fader, Mary Anne Hobbs, Red Bull, XLR8R and Dazed Digital.
Justin Martin is one of the few house DJs that successfully bridges the gap between being commercially successful and staying true to the underground. His sound has been described as both melodic and tough, with releases ranging from the dynamic “Cicada” on dirtybird to the slamming “Magnificent” remix for Iz and Diz on OM records. Justin first gained international acclaim for his single, “The Sad Piano,” on Ben Watt’s Buzzin’fly label. The single made its way into many A-List DJ crates as well as receiving many accolades from critics. Over time, Justin developed a more edgy sound in his hometown of San Francisco. He helped develop the local dirtybird label with his good friend, Claude VonStroke, releasing several amazing singles and remixes. Justin considers himself lucky to be making music and is always a humble, but rocking presence on the dance floor. Stay tuned for some amazing new music and remixes this year.
