Swedish acid producer Etcher makes their debut on Posthuman’s I Love Acid series. Three sublime cuts of analogue hardware-led deep acid house & electro, plus a woozy ambient piece to finish the EP.
After a year away, I Love Acid returns and label bosses Posthuman deliver three tracks of slow, lush acid awash with Juno pads and clattering 707 beats.
Making his debut on ‘I Love Acid’ is Argentinian-born, Barcelona resident Nehuen. Best known for co-running the Classicworks imprint with Cardopusher, the pair are also labelmates on Boys Noize, and have a similar approach of raw, machine funk – finding the sweet spot between acid, jacking techno and EBM. Heavy duty stuff for dark and sweaty dancefloors.
Liverpool based producer Mark Forshaw, aka Casio Royale and member of the Phantom Planet Outlaws, has built up a solid back catalogue of releases with the likes of Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, Computer Controlled, Mathematics, Unknown to the Unknown and more. He makes the transition from playing at I Love Acid’s parties to featuring on the label. Four more tracks of acid bassline music to jack to.
UK techno & house veteran Neville Watson makes his I Love Acid debut, after headlining at their tenth anniversary party in London earlier this year. Mark Forshaw with remix duties. These tracks have been getting caned across the UK, Europe and the USA this summer by a list of DJs far too long to mention. This is the real deal, proper acid for the dancefloor.
A poignant and thoughtful EP from Berlin duo Snuff Crew, dedicated to their friend, collaborator and labelmate Andreas Gehm who passed away in summer 2016, just after his own I Love Acid release. Four analogue acid hardware tracks. Remix duty falls to fellow hardware aficionado Perseus Traxx.
I Love Acid reaches number nine, with Barcelona native Cardopusher at the helm. Four dirty acid jams aimed straight at the floor.
I LOVE ACID reaches number eight here with in-demand German producer Andreas Gehm at the helm. Four tracks of proper analogue acid gear, bassline music for dancefloors. This is buy-on-sight material, with all previous I LOVE ACID releases selling out in just days.
Number six in the I Love Acid series. Rephlex legend Global Goon features with four wonky takes on acid. A-sides ‘Caramel Door’ & ‘The Botanist’ jitter in and out of slo-mo techno & electronica. On the flip, ‘Black Wheat’ ups the tempo with a bit of disco playfulness, while closer ‘Creamy Noogies’ gets its rave on with samples of Snap’s ‘The Power’ against a rampant 303 bassline.
Seventh release in the I Love Acid series. Perseus Traxx in action with some lush acid techno – melodies submerged in deep reverb amongst clattering drum machines and 303 snarls. All original analogue kit, all the real deal.
