Hot on the heels of our highly acclaimed second release comes the one and only Adamski (<a href="http://soundcloud.com/adam_sky" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">adamski/adam sky-official</a>) making his debut on Continental Records, with an EP bursting with energy between the A-side I Like It and B-side Wot Happened To U. Remixes are provided by <a href="http://soundcloud.com/attari" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ATTAR!</a>, <a href="http://soundcloud.com/mirrorpeople" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Mirror People</a> and Blackjoy.
With a musical history stretching back to the eighties, the man also known as Adam Tinley remains one of pop’s great British eccentrics, forever fusing house, electro, new wave… with catchy choruses and all around dementia. Inspired by punk ethos, he swore he’d never compromise and went off on an idiosyncratic journey galvanized by Ibiza’s original party spirit and fuelled by his acid-house anthems ‘NRG’ and ‘Killer’. Since then his performances across the world have been complemented by a stream of releases as Adam Sky on tastemakers imprints Kitsuné, Crosstown Rebels and Exploited. Now reprising his original Adamski identity, he returns to discotheques with a vengeance and a bagful of hot dance tunes and enough pop appeal for Continental to welcome this unique character into its growing stable.
A-side ‘I Like It’ starts off discreetly but soon reveals its true identity as a certified peaktime machine, with ATTAR! (Renaud Deru, formerly of Mustang) providing a brilliant rendition that takes it to a new level. On the flip side, we see Adamski going back to his Ibiza roots with ‘Wot Happened To U’ a balearic chugger that would make longtime buddy DJ Alfredo proud. Discotexas’ Mirror People lines up to give the track a lush makeover that plays to these roots. French maestro Blackjoy rounds up the package with an inspired alternative version.
