After the old-school inspired ‚Forward To The Past‘ that saw a Poker Flat re-visit some seriously jacking zones, we now focus directly on Acid House and the genre‘s beloved Roland TB-303. That innocent little box created some of the most freaky basslines in dance music history, and we‘re here to celebrate its unique tone and the legacy of ACID.
Accompanying the vinyl release, the digital format features a digital exclusive track. Producers featured include Motorcitysoul, Vincenzo & Tyson Balard, Sven Tasnadi & Juno 6, Sasse, Steve Bug, Kink & Neville Watson, Snuff Crew, Tinman, Glimpse & Will Saul.
Germany‘s Motorcitysoul drop the ‚soul‘ and transform themselves into ‚MotorcityACID‘ with ‚Bass En Provence‘. A mighty 303 bass line tweaks while ungodly synths warble on top of the madness.
Up and coming UK producer Owain K supplies a really haunting acid track complete with some really classy vintage percussion and a squelching lead line. Similarly, Vincenzo & Tyson Balard feed our analog appetites with more soaring 303 action and a classic stomping new jack groove.
Sven Tasnadi & Juno 6‘s far-out filter acid cut ‚Generation A‘ is one of the more intense moments of the album. Building and freaking with true rebellious new-school drama it’s a guaranteed floor-screecher!
Sasse is back with a storming, flanging monster in ‚Cassopolis‘. 707 drums work the floor while a reminiscent string line leads the 303 tweaks into the night.
Labelhead Steve Bug contributes a hot little tribute to chicago, ‚This Is Acid‘!
Leading hallucinators Kink & Neville Watson really freak us out with ‚Sleepless‘ - a dark dirty and raving track that makes no compromises and sends us sky high with its multiple acid lines and driving drums.
Reliable machine-jack outfit Snuff Crew employ their finest weaponry for ‚I Can‘t Remember‘, while respected producer Tinman comes to the fore with the chugging ‚Blown‘.
Sven Tasnadi‘s ‚Follow The Roots‘ adds a unique swing to the groove as he really gets the acid cooking in a hot warehouse jam.
Only to be found on the digital release, newcomers Wondercan build a solid acid tool in ‚Dark Passenger‘ that shakes and shimmers in lovely vintage style.
Finally, two of London‘s finest, Glimpse and Will Saul, join forces to create ‚Into The Woods‘ - a rough and moody ambient inspired piece that really has its own groove and unique sound design.
