2005 has been Adam's best year to date. Not only has he been shortlisted in the prestigious Best DJ category in the Mixmag Awards alongside Sasha , Felix Da Housecat and Paul van Dyk but his latest release Another Tomorrow has received rave reviews in numerous Dance magazines and has so far reached the top 20 in the Dutch Dance Charts. In 2004, Adam Sheridan was voted at number 136 in DJ Magazine's poll for the best DJs in the world. Adam is quite possibly the youngest entry into the DJ Magazine Poll and the 21-year-old is also the youngest ever DJ to record a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix (Jan 04), which was commended for its diversity and innovation and has well and truly launched Adam on the world stage. Adam Sheridan has received such praise as "one of the UK's best trance DJs" from Pete Tong and "I rate Adam Sheridan as a DJ, he's got a great future" from Paul van Dyk and so his Essential Mix marked the beginning of a breakthrough into the league of top British talent. Adam Sheridan was deemed the Best Undiscovered Talent by two of the top five DJs in the world ? Paul van Dyk and Ferry Corsten , in 2003. Throughout 2003 and 2004, Adam has risen through the ranks and has now become one of the most accomplished and sought-after new talents to emerge from the UK. His unique style of three deck mixing and crossing genres from trance to techno, as well as his highly acclaimed production, has grabbed the attention of clubbers, promoters and his DJ peers and has propelled Adam from undiscovered to distinguished. This summer, Adam completed a four-date residency at Cream Amnesia and performed on the main stages of all Europe's main festivals, including Dance Valley and Impulz in the Netherlands and Creamfields , Coloursfest and Escape in the Park in the UK. He has also been increasingly touring abroad with gigs in Ukraine, Germany and the legendary Mayday Festival in Poland. Adam also regularly plays the biggest and best clubs in the UK such as Gatecrasher, Godskitchen , Turnmills , Lush, Inside Out, Slinky, Passion, Cream and of course Goodgreef , where it all began. He headlined Goodgreef's fifth birthday party this year at Nation, Liverpool, with a rousing digital performance, using Stantons Final Scratch, Three pioneer CDJs and a Pioneer EFX 1000. All of his sets feature exclusive tracks and remixes, making his performances fresh and original. Adam's technical ability and polished production has resulted in ongoing support from some of the world's biggest DJs and the music press, having been voted Mixmag's Future Hero of by readers at the start of this year. A Trance Award followed in March and Adam compiled a credible mix CD for July's M8 Magazine, containing exclusive material. He has been handpicked by Paul van Dyk to play alongside him at various Vandit parties in London and Berlin and has performed after Ti?sto at Cream at the breathtaking Amnesia, Ibiza. Adam is signed to Dutch Record Label Purple Eye, where so far he has released three mind-blowing trance records! There are few young DJs who have achieved this much at such a young age! Adam's passion for dance music began at a very early age, staying up late to listen to Essential Mixes when he was just 11 and becoming especially interested in Sasha and Carl Cox. Adam says he enjoyed the "energy and feeling" the music gave him and he purchased his first record Gat D?cor ? Passion and first set of decks at only 12 years-old. Adam quickly developed a taste for being creative with the music, using techniques and effects to make the music original and personalised . Growing up in the Leeds suburb of Morley meant that Adam was a regular at the underground but renowned club, The Orbit, by the age of 15, where he saw the likes of Sven Vath , CJ Bolland and Westbam ? all of whom influenced the early development of Adam's style. Although techno and house were his first love, he also greatly admired the more melodic sound which dance could offer and in particular, Paul van Dyk , who he frequently saw at Gatecrasher (when the doormen decided he looked old enough to be allowed in!). This young enthusiasm for the dance scene has helped shape Adam's unique, contemporary sound of "dirty, driving, techy beats and melodies which make your spine tingle". The first gig which Adam had was at the age of 15 at the first ever Goodgreef event in Manchester, after his friend passed a distinctive mix tape the up-and-coming promoter. After his short one-hour set, Adam was offered a residency which he still holds today and sees him regularly play the UK's largest venue, Tall Trees. At this early stage in his career, Adam began composing his own music. His regular trips to Gatecrasher to see Paul van Dyk heavily influenced his production work, as Adam was amazed by Paul's ability to control and move the crowd with his unique sound. Adam set about creating his first track which he passed to Paul at a Gatecrasher set on his 18th Birthday. Later in the night, Paul played the 12" acetate and this was the defining moment which launched Adam's drive and determination to succeed as a DJ/Producer. Following on from this, Adam began to play a variety of venues around the UK and as word spread, his growing reputation earned him a residency at Birmingham superclub Sundissential . Within a year, he was regularly performing at some of the biggest clubs in the UK such as Godskitchen , Slinky and Goodgreef , while his production reached a new level. Teaming up with a fellow young, talented producer and dance music enthusiast Joe Thompson enabled Adam to progress with music production and it was a dream realised to begin work in a studio. The first notable track to come out of the partnership was Lektrik , a pumping and uplifting trance track which was the result of many late nights, several disagreements but plenty of enjoyment. The making of Lektrik proved to be a challenging learning curve and the promotion work was even harder. In an attempt to give the track to Ferry Corsten , who was at a gig at Passion, Adam and Joe experienced a flat tyre , running out of diesel and a gig in Hull. Eventually the track was given to Ferry and on the Monday morning was signed to Purple Eye Entertainment, which was yet another dream come true for Adam. The next release was a remix of a good friend's track ? Simon Foy's Boxed Off , which represents the more upbeat side of Adam's sound. As a result of Lektrik , which has been supported by some of the biggest names in dance, Adam's career has evolved and he has gained recognition across the globe. His second release Crescendo / Terminal Velocity received just as much attention with extensive radio play from Paul van Dyk , Eddie Halliwell , BBC Radio 1's Dave Pearce and Galaxy FM's Paul Kershaw and Riley & Durrant . The release reached number 10 in the DMC world trance chart and has become a firm favourite with clubbers around the world. Adam's huge production success continued with remixes of NU NRG's uplifting anthem, Dreamland and Scandinavian dance band Aven's Making Me Fall , in April of this year. Absolution ? an energetic, dynamic track with a more banging remix by Dutch star Cor Fijneman on the B-side ? was released on Goodgreef records with much hype. Another Tomorrow was released at the end of August and caused a stir with its melodic, summery, laid back theme. It was highly rated by both Mixmag and International DJ Magazine. It is Adam's passion and enthusiasm for dance culture which continually attracts the attention and admiration of clubbers, as people can easily identify with his love for the music. "Dance music is such a huge part of my life. I love the fact that is forms a global community and I'm very glad to be a part of that community."
