Adam Freeland has come a long way.
Initially part of his local scene in Hertfordshire, the producer gained first national then international fame, smashing through genre lines in the process.
Now working as one third of The Acid, Adam Freeland recently returned to the decks for a special set at Sacred Ground Festival in Germany.
The English artist explains:
"As Ry and Frank had intended, Sacred ground had a lovely family/ intimate vibe to it. A welcome sidestep from the 'Banners And Bangers' formula of many festivals. This was more like the techno village fete. A great soundsystem, contained in a farm courtyard in beautiful little village north of Berlin. It's rare these days to be on a line up where the programming flow was so carefully considered and I enjoy each act. Having been focused on The Acid rather than DJing, it was really touching to feel that I still have so much love from the dancefloor realm. It definitely felt like I rocked the party. And then... David August blew my mind."
A special occasion, Adam Freeland's set was recorded for posterity. Clash has first spin - check it out below.
