The legendary balearic house and acid house act, A Man Called Adam, dives into a collection of rarities and never-heard-before versions taken from their outstanding discography. The result is a series of mixtapes named « Love Forgotten (Oddities and Rarities) » and the first part is out right now. We are extremely proud to present you the Dub version of « All My Favourite People (Stay With Me) », a track originally published in 1998 as part of their « Duende » album.

A Man Called Adam (AMCA) occupy a unique place in the British electronic music scene. Enigmatic, fiercely independent… and yet: they’ve sold millions of records.

You’ll hear their music in every beach bar on the planet but few people outside the underground dance scene know much about this eccentric duo. Their catalogue is littered with genre-defining classics such as « Techno Powers », « Barefoot In the Head », or their lounge version of « Que Tal America », but also Ibiza chillout masterpieces like « Estelle » and « Easter Song ».

In 2019, Test Pressing referred to AMCA as ‘Britain’s unsung pop heroes’ in their review of album « Farmarama » which saw them return after a decade long hiatus – but they hadn’t been idle during their time out. In fact, they continuously experimented, collaborated and fulfilled commissions for museums, radio programmes and films. They studied sound design, sonic art and poetics, wrote songs, made films, a/v and installation works.

The Oddities collections bring some of that work into the public domain for the first time and places it next to recognisable classics from the band’s catalogue.

The compilation is a constant motion built from three decades worth of experiments in sound and song, a left of centre overview of one band’s career as heard in remixes, oddities, outtakes and edits. The result is a perfect flow of ambient electronics, house music and strung out Balearic mixes shot through with musicianship and sounds from all across the globe.

Lovingly compiled by A Man Called Adam – Sally Rodgers and Steve Jones – from a vast and deep back catalogue, « Love Forgotten » takes pieces from every stage of their band’s journey and fuses them into a truly hypnotic whole. Reworks of classic singles sit next to commissions for the British Museum; collaborations with Idjut Boys, Sensory Productions and Ibizan legend José Padilla melt into gorgeous sunset acoustic sounds. It’s the perfect mixtape for the endless summer that’s playing out in your head.
