Etcher’s back on Abstract Acid and he’s on fire.
If you are going to do Acid it better be a uncompromising slab of raw Acid House. Four jackers from Japan’s duo Takeshi Kouzuki & Mituo Shiomi.
Classic Acid and Chicago Trax from synth extraordinaire Ed DMX.
Flowing acidic lava from new Abstract Acid discovery, Etcher, who we have absolutely no prior knowledge of, but this matters not as this is solid acid-techno through-and-through, reminiscent perhaps of an early nineties European sound, which of course we favour greatly here at Interstellar HQ. Quite simply really, really good acid.
Andreas Gehm returns to Abstract Acid with another series of dark and demented basement jams. A Groove EP features six tracks of his signature style so you know what to expect its no frills, no nonsense, straight up jack your body business, made for those who still love the sound of that little silver box.
The Exaltics have been rippin’-up the acid vibes for some time now, gathering momentum from the efforts and hard work of imprints such as Solar One Music, Transient Force, Last Known Trajectory, Bunker and Panzerkreuz and of course more recently Crème Organization, Trust and our friends at Abstract Acid. As such, the time has come for a full-length acid project, entitled ‘Das Heise Experiment’ which originates from The Exaltics’ desire to take things a notch deeper, while pushing the acid a step into more menacing and quite devilish territory. For those that appreciate such dastardly dark styles, well, you will not be disappointed with this album. Coarse acid coupled with sublime soundscapes and ubiquitously haunting melodies make for the perfect combination.
Abstract Acid presents a super-tasty acid collection with cuts from our Elec Pt.1, Etcher, Crime Scene and Takeshi Kouzuki. Splendid sounds for the oldschool heads.
The Abstract Acid series continues its exploration into the depths of acid with a relentless 303 assault from UK-based machine operator, Mantra – four rugged tracks of distorted, crackling beats and low slung bass lines that are just crying out to be ripped through the speakers of a dark, filthy warehouse.
The first of Various Artist release on Abstract Acid, ‘Downtown Dirt 1′ is packed full of chicago workouts. Tracks by Jackee, Interface88, MMMC (Man Made Mechanical Culture) and Steve Summers.
New 4 track EP by Takeshi Kouzuki on Abstract Acid. Analogue vibes are the order of the day, from gritty blends of acidic machine funk to melodic enriched house vibes.
Jackin Chicago styles with a distinct European edge, as Elec Pt.1 kicks off the Abstract Forms sub-label, Abstract Acid. Expect Bunker style dynamics, low-slung basslines, contorting acid and downright mean ‘n’ moody riffs.
