I've been on something of a Acid obsession lately, sourcing tracks from across that time period when I wasn't even born yet. There's something mesmerizing about Acid lines that pulls you into a dark trance for the full length of the track. I haven't been able to get enough of that Roland TB-303 sound, one that you would definitely recognize even if you didn't necessarily know what you were listening to and back in the day a TB-303 was every Techno producers must have dance floor weapon. When tracks like this one surface, its easy to understand why.
Some could even argue that most of the dance music world owes its life to the TB-303, at least to Roland (who also produced the TR-808 and TR-909, now legendary drum machines.) Because of this it was with extra delight that i found this track in Ejeca's recent Boiler Room DJ Set at the Warehouse Project in Manchester, UK. The track is deep, dubby house with creepy acid stabs that play continuously throughout. Vocals and samples pop in from the iconic Stardust track 'Music Sounds Better With You', before being stripped away when the bass line returns. A truly phenomenal track not necessarily on the way it sounds alone, but on the history it draws from and the ability it would have to destroy the dance floor.
The tracks made something of a storm on the web and because of the brilliant response the track has received Ejeca has decided to release it for free! Never turn down free acid so don't even think of not taking this one!
