“Four different tests of 63 people found that those who kept their intentions private were more likely to achieve them than those who made them public and were acknowledged by others.”

    Adam, this is a note I sent you on myspace before I realized that you haven’t logged into the site in over a year. Just thought I’d post it here as I feel that it’s important to read. Many thanks.

    Subject: You as a DJ

    Body: Adam, you’ve been one of my all time favorite DJs since I first heard you in 2002. I have a Psy-Trance mix of yours that was recorded on 7-9-2003. It instantly became one of my all-time favorites and I’ve been listening to it regularly ever since. Even after all of these years, it never gets old. The track selection is unlike any I’ve heard, and I’ve heard ‘em all.

    You’re defnitely up there with the top Israeli Producers/DJs–Astral Projection, Astrix, Chakra, Xerox and Illumination, Protoculture (South Africa), Fatali, etc… At least in my opinion. I was disappointed to learn that you’ve retired as a DJ, although I’m thankful that you offer downloads of your fantastic mixes and tracks. How awesome is that?!?! Anyway, just thought you might like to know what an influence and inspiration you’ve been to me musically. If it wasn’t for DJs like you (very few) I wouldn’t have been so in love with the music for so many years.

    Troy
