In late 2000 Adnan began his journey into music production.

His first project, named "Pacificodelic," was co-produced with Gavin Hardkiss and released on Hawk's "Heatstroke" compilation on Six Degrees Reccords. "Pacificodelic" revisits an aural fascination with after-hours tribal funk and loose-limbed, watery grooves, and melds the sounds of Brazil with the legendary San Francisco's Hardkiss sound.

In 2000 Adnan also began working in the studio with Tarantic Records' founder Amit Shoham. Their first collaboration, "Visualize," was released in May 2001 on Tarantic Records. The duo has continued producing tracks together ever since. Their track "Searching" will be released in late 2002 on Primal Records' new offshoot label, PR2, and their track "Birimbau De San Francisco" will be released in mid 2003 on Sunburn Recordings.

Adnan is also part of a production trio along with Jah Love Recordings artists Ivan and Starchild. The trio produced two tracks for Leaf Recordings that will be released in Fall 2002: "Roots Rhythm" and "Memories."
