VA – Dark Acid [CDR12001]


After a catalogue of experimental, industrial and band-related releases, the Clan Destine label moves into techno with Dark Acid. The first release is a five track mini-album opened by the cagey Chicagoan bass and Marcel Duchamp-referencing Detroitisms of Dungeon Acid’s “Nude Descending A Staircase”. Sharing the two-track A-side is the “Subway Antlers” by the unknown cheek of Ron Hardly, featuring some ’90s house percussion and a melody that sounds distinctly like the Doctor Who theme. Torn Hawk introduces some charged gothic techno with his Fast Throne mix of “Black Rain”, while Tuff Sherm opts for a minimal and slow ghetto house approach in “Idle Engines”. Recent One Eyed Jacks remixer Worker/Parasite brings the mini-album its most lieral representation of ‘dark acid’ by drenching the 303 workout that is “Angkar Loeu” in heavy reverb.
