Belfast based composer and producer Amerik didn’t expect to become the centre of the stage. Normally found in the background playing bass for some of Northern Ireland’s best exports such as Gareth Dunlop, Blue Americans, In Case of Fire and Rams Pocket Radio, Adam Booth took a leap of faith by releasing his own music under the pseudonym throughout 2018/2019. The collection of ambient and emotive symphony style tracks caught the attention of BBC Radio Ulster and Nialler9.
With a rapidly growing fan base, critical acclaim from top publications such as Hot Press and The Daily Mirror, and regular airplay on BBC Radio Ulster and Q Radio, Amerik has solidified his position as an artist to watch. Known for his innovative sound and dynamic productions, Amerik has consistently pushed boundaries, merging various genres to create a unique sonic experience.
"a glorious piece of dark ambient music...if ever a song fit the label of headphones music then this is it.” Nialler9
"The pair's talent amalgamate in a gorgeous parallel of vocal strength and darkly modern electronic production. Fusing rich synths and chordal progressions, the track acts as a rousing marker of what Amerik's Bouquet EP will achieve." Hot Press
