Given the expansive nature of Terry Farley’s first celebration of early and classic house, 2013’s five-disc Acid Rain, you’d think he’d be running out of choices for this second, similarly epic selection. In fact, Acid Thunder is, if anything, a more pleasingly deep and in-depth collection. Whereas that first installment was heavy on relatively well-known classics, this follow-up digs deeper for inspiration. As a result, it’s packed with tracks that many house DJs simply won’t know, or have struggled to get hold of; not just stone cold classics such as Bobby Konders’ “Nervous Acid” or Hexx Complex’s “I Want You”, but genuinely overlooked material from the likes of Risque III, Peter Black and Jack James Rabbit. It’s something of a welcome history lesson, even for those with a good grasp of house music’s formative years.

“Zone 4 was the first project that I created as a whole idea, the creation of Zone 4 started around the time that the final track selection to A New World was taking shape. It sat for a number of years, shelved till the day that I found a label that would honor it the way I had envisioned”.
Everyone’s favourite French Minimal Wavers In Aeternam Vale return for an outing on Jealous God.
Spellbinding new side project from Sigha. Following his latest Avian release, James Shaw now unveils his Faugust project with a 10” title on the Avian sublabel Mira. Emotive and highly personal, Devotions (1984 – 2006) shows a side of Shaw’s sound that has been largely buried since 2004, combining his experience as a guitarist with many of the sonic approaches that characterise his best known music today. Over the course of four tracks it layers pulsating bass and synth lines with melodic flourishes and a pop sensibility not seen in his other work.
