Ad·ver·sary is an industrial project fronted by Jairus Khan, based in Toronto.


Ad·ver·sary has heavily toured the United States and Canada with Iszoloscope, and has acted as tour support for Terrorfakt, Antigen Shift, and Adam X. His remix work includes material from Iszoloscope, Converter, Cyanotic and Urusai.

In 2008,[1] Ad·ver·sary signed to the Tympanik Audio label to release his debut album Bone Music, which was also made available as a free download under Creative Commons licensing [1]. The critically acclaimed album was mastered by Yann Faussurier of Iszoloscope, containing remixes by Antigen Shift, Tonikom, and Synapscape. [2][3][4][5][6]

Khan's sister is the Juno nominated artist Eternia.


At the 2012 Kinetik Festival, Ad·ver·sary criticized headlining acts Combichrist and Nachtmahr from the stage, playing a five minute video during his last song that "openly critiques ... the use of misogynist and racist tropes in those band’s music and publicity materials".[7] The presentation ended with the words "Reject racism. Reject sexism. Reject what the industry is telling you. Reject formulaic bullshit. Reject what you are being sold. We can do better. We deserve better. We demand better." [8]
