Adamski

From Academic Kids

Adamski (real name: Adam Tinley) is a British dance music producer, prominent at the time of acid house for his tracks "N-R-G" and "Killer" (a collaboration with Seal). The latter song crossed over into the mainstream charts, becoming a massive world-wide hit. It is featured on the album Doctor Adamski's Musical Pharmacy.

According to his biography, Tinley adopted his artist's name after the UFO enthusiast George Adamski. Adamski's signature song, "Killer", was a collabaration with Seal. Pop music artist George Michael later successfully married "Killer"'s bass line to the melody of The Temptations' "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" on a live album featuring the surviving members of Queen.

Adamski's second album Naughty featured a collaboration with Nina Hagen on "Get Your Body!" and plenty of good club tunes, expanding from the artist's acid house roots into the pop and rock genres. Commercially, however, this album was not a big success.

Adamski's third album was issued in late 1998 on the ZTT Records label, famous for producing acts such as Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Art of Noise. Its title was Adamski's Thing and its style followed the trend started with Naughty -- lots of guitars, strings, raw vocals and introspective lyrics, but maintaining a rhythmic dance sensibility. The album spawned two singles, "Intravenous Venus" and "One Of the People".

In 2000, Tinley released his last single as Adamski, "In the City". The song charted in Italy, but did little business elsewhere. In the early 2000s, Adam Tinley decided to assume a new identity: he is now producing as Adam Sky. [1] (http://www.adam-sky.com/skybiog.htm)
