Originating from the village of West Chiltington located in West Sussex, United Kingdom, Alex Adair is a DJ, producer, and remixer often associated with the tropical house genre. Similar to other tropical house producers such as Kygo and Felix Jaehn, Adair’s music features thumping, uptempo 4/4 house beats and sunny, relaxed synth textures as well as acoustic instrumentation, with percussive sounds such as xylophones being a particular characteristic of Adair’s tracks. Adair remixed Jessie Ware’s “Say You Love Me” and Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” in 2014, but his big breakthrough came with the release of his original track “Make Me Feel Better” in spring of 2015. The energetic track, which samples Ashford & Simpson’s composition “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing,” was originally created for a creative music technology course that Adair was taking at Canterbury University and subsequently uploaded to his Soundcloud page, creating a buzz among EDM fans. Virgin EMI released the track and it became an international hit, peaking at number 13 on the U.K. singles chart. Adair followed the track’s success with the release of his second single, “Heaven.” ~ Paul Simpson
