2012 was before Adriatic, known also as Adrian Garrison Williams, began producing for his high school band Pseudoubt. The simplicity found in the tracks sees him exploring a sound more closely inspired by 90s heavyweights such as Pete Rock and Dan the Automator. Whereas during 2013-2016, it seemed as though Williams was tinkering with more electronic, synthesized sounds in his work. Pizza is what helped Adriatic get some of his first exposure in Minneapolis, spiraling into getting an opportunity to perform original music at Soundset Festival in 2014, while only 16-years-old. The beat tape has been made available via his official Soundcloud.
