If NWA were straight outta Compton, Elliot Adamson is straight off the Internet. To be precise, the rising UK house star is actually from the small town of Houghton-le-Spring, near Newcastle, but that’s not quite as influential in the greater scheme of his rise through the DJ game as his presence on social media.
Whether it’s clocking up hundreds of thousands of plays on his edits on Soundcloud, or amassing an engaged crew of fans on his Twitter and Facebook, the twenty two year old has buzzed his way into contention with a combination of on-point edits of well known tracks and super sharp banter. His original tracks have found favour on labels like Eats Everything’s Edible, Toolroom and Hot Creations, making him one of this year’s key one-to-watch artists on Beatport.
He cut his teeth as a DJ playing for Newcastle’s Digital at the tender age of 17 and blazed a trail of tastemaker tech house parties and tours in 2017 but it’s his knack for making jackpot edits like his re-rub of The Streets ‘Weak Become Heroes’ that was played by DJs like Seth Troxler, Shanti Celeste and Jackmaster last year, that have created the biggest waves for the unashamedly honest Adamson. He’s not afraid to admit his ties with DJs like Patrick Topping or Eats Everything began with being a drunken pest in clubs, and as such, he’s the epitome of the hungry, hustling raver made good.
