Blasting onto the scene on Regan’s Network Comp in 2005, Headroom (Adam Metcalfe) has quickly created a name for himself with further releases on NANO and some awesome live sets at Origin and Glade festivals. His production is crisp as it comes with a sound which is clearly his own. He busy working on his debut album, set for release on NANO in 2007. Also a tidy DJ he is constantly rocking dancefloors whenever he gets behind the decks.With a driven approach towards sculpting a new range of serious ‘art-elligent’ music, Headroom is catapulting his way to the realm of the non-forgettables. He has only been producing full time for just over a year, and is set to release his debut album with Nano in 2007. Beating stereotype and predictability, there is a keen desire to attain a new level of conscious fullon trance highlighting Headroom as a worthy “up and coming” must-see on this season’s dance floor. The release of his first single ‘The future begins today’, featured on “Network”, in 2005, amongst others has cemented him a place in the future of psychedelic music.
A dedicated work ethic and a commitment to producing a refined and collectable album, means that fans and music lovers alike have something to truly look forward to. Headroom has been djing for eight years but it has been his accelerated understanding of production that translates his personal signature sound on today’s scene. Already Origin, Earthdance and Glade have caught on to Headroom’s talents. With previous releases on Nano and various memorable live acts, “ARTelligent” (Nano Records) is one album that will be hard to miss.
