Adam Lasus

Adam “Red” Lasus was one of the many pioneers during the “first wave” of indie music, producing and engineering bands such as Julianna Hatfield, Chris Harford, Versus, Madder Rose, Helium, and Yo La Tengo during the early ’90s. Originally from Philadelphia, he built his first facility, Studio Red, around the block from the Khyber Pass, a club where most of the country’s hardest working indie acts would ultimately pass through. Lasus frequently hung out there, befriending interesting groups he would lure into his studio, or “musicians playground” as he calls it.
