Adamski took his artist name from the American UFO enthusiast George Adamski. In 1988 he moved into a bedsit above the Paradise Kebab shop in Camden, with Jimi Polo living in the adjoining bedsit. Jimi introduced him to house music, and taught him how to use a sequencer and a 909 drum machine. Adamski also played the piano line from Jimi’s track ‘Better Days’.
Adamski began touring the UK with his set-up, starting off playing at Le Petit Prince in Kentish town, a club owned by his then manager Phil Smith. He ended up as the resident live show for Amnesia in Ibiza.
