ELLIOT ADAMSON is a 19 year old producer and DJ from Newcastle who lives in London. You may recall seeing his name pop up on TTK as we’ve featured his tracks quite a few times now. He now has his first release out with London label TROUPE RECORDS and it’s a cracking EP titled ‘Transatlantic’.
Up first ‘Montpellier’ is a deep, groaning techno cut that makes a big impact on the dancefloor. Textured percussion dances with drums and industrial synths. Haunting sirens kick in half-way through to add extra drama as the track builds; well placed touch.
‘Detroit’ takes influence from the origins of house music with skipping drums and nice loose percussion. The raw vocal sample sits nicely with the stripped back feel of the track and there’s loads of kick to get you shaking. A great homage to the classic underground house sound.
Fellow Geordies MOONLIT VISION work a remix on ‘Detroit’ stripping it back further for a dark, minimal feel, perfect for trippy moments in dark corners of clubs.
Elliot’s tracks have already been played by the likes of Levon Vincent, Laurent Garnier, Kidnap Kid and Roska, and this EP’s only going to get him more attention from big names. One to watch for 2015. Go boi!
