A bonus post this morning… 10 years after Japan’s ‘Quiet Life’, British electronic music had changed dramatically. After the success of his acid house album Liveanddirect, producer/DJ Adam Tinley’s (aka Adamski) ambitions had grown. He had recorded the instrumental track ‘Killer’, but wanted to add vocals. Rather than use a sample, Adamski hired Samuel Adeola (aka Seal) whom he’d met in a club. Seal wrote his own lyrics and recorded the vocals in one take – the resulting house/pop crossover became one of the biggest tunes of 1990 worldwide.
