Type-303 – UglyTruth [ZEIT009]

Type-303 delivers a 4-track homage to 90’s rave and acid on Zeitnot 09. Upfront and unreservedly ‘The E-Street‘ captures the soul of acid warehouse club culture with a thunderous, addictive chord melody from the word go. Belly-deep, sweltering bass made for sweaty body masses. ‘Sfääri’ takes a serene, almost dream house turn, side-chained lo-fi pads and twisting, turning acid bass. Flip the plate for more gutteral, darker acid techno – like the head-rattling ‘UglyTruth’. Disturbing broken-machine sounding hook looms over bubbling accented acid squelch, while the 303 abuse continues on ‘Uprising’; an eerie vocal sample reminiscent of classic Chicago jack tracks, with driving hi-hats and a psychedelic sliding acid line.

Type-303 – Sysi EP [SRTX030]

30 releases in and Super Rhythm Trax celebrate with this beautiful record by Finnish producer, Type-303 with an EP that faces off the lushest most uplifting Acid music against the rawest and dirtiest end of the genre. ‘Delays’ sounds almost like an early UR record while ‘Code 808’ is an absolute masterclass in bliss, complete with it’s vocoders, electro drum track and singing 303s. Sandwiched between these two tracks you have the cheeky suggestiveness of ‘Kolkki Crush’ and the outright sleaze of ‘Life In Mono’.
