A stalwart of Birmingham’s house and techno scene since the mid-00s, Adam Shelton has already become well recognised for making chunky electronic house tracks for labels like 20:20 Vision and One Records. However, partly through natural growth, and partly through the friendly stewardship of Craig Richards and the Houghton Festival, Adam has recently developed a new electro-oriented alias in the form of A-Future. Operating in the space where the intricate drums of Drexciya meets the warped bounce of DMX Krew, A-Future plays Sci-Fi DJ sets beamed from alien radio. He’s not afraid to venture away from the electro template though and can often be found wading through the waters of squelchy breakbeat and intense acid. Expect his ION appearance to be full of intensity and surprising variety.
