With the mercury reaching 25-degrees plus in most of Europe today, for this week’s Throwback Thursday, I’ve picked a track synonymous with so many Ibiza sunsets, Easter Song by jazz/house maestros A Man Called Adam.
I first came across A Man Called Adam through the track Estelle, which appeared on the first (and still the best) Café Del Mar compilation, compiled by José Padilla, but delving further into their back catalogue, this track from 1995 encapsulates everything that I love about the White Isle.
A Man Called Adam have been fairly inactive since 2004,when they released a Best Of compilation on Southern Fried Records, but if this week’s weather continues for the remainder of the summer, I will be among those calling for a reunion.
Fun fact: former band member Paul Daley left the band in the early 90s to form Leftfield, alongside Neil Barnes. Now there’s an enviable CV if ever there was one…
