Tigas brother recently said about Adam Sky: "I know that Tiga had a picture of Adam Sky up on his wall when he was a kid, that he wanted to BE him, and that Adam put his first record out 30 years ago, which dethrones Sven Väth and makes him the longest-active, still relevant producer as far as I know."
Adam Sky has a new single out on "Exploited" with remixes from Tomski&Fredboy (Tartelet/Get Physical/Whomadewho), Ku Bo (Man Recordings) and JBAG (Kitsune). The single is called "The Imperious Urge" and features the fantastic voice of Danny Williams (the grandfather of his daugther) who was also the voice of the 1961 chart-topping version of "Moon River".
Sadly, he is no longer alive but "The Imperious Urge" demonstrates he'd lost none of his vocal ability.
Not long ago, Adam Sky shared a cab together with Anthony (from Anthony and the Johnsons/Hercules&Love Affair) and told him that some english journalist considered "The Imperious Urge" as a bad copy of "Hercules&Love Affair" which made Anthony quite interested in the song....but I dont want to tell you how the story ends:)
For now I am gonna give you a Dj-set from Adam Sky which he already did in February. Lazy me hasnt put it up so far.....sorry:(
