Chris Moss Acid :: Righteous Acid Beats EP (Computer Controlled)

Righteous Acid Beats is a continuation of the ideas that were laid out in Phantasy. Heavy throbbing patterns further vulcanised by a dip into Roland contaminated liquor.

Rolando Simmons :: Rolando Simmons EP (030303)

Looseness reigns, melody flows, cascading with abject freedom. Tangents form, and reform, but without breaking down into outright lunacy. In my younger years I was better at trawling the internet for MP3 artists. But, as the years melted to age the allure and tactility of vinyl overcame TCP/IP. Yet there is a wealth of musicians […]

FAH has taken Braindance and rewired it to his musical machinery—communicating his eclectic ideas through a cacophony of computer sounds, contrasting rhythms and clever analogue chords.

Chris Moss Acid :: Bay of Cadiz (030303)

It was never too clear what Bay of Cadiz was going to be about. There was a chance of 303 bedlam, a chance of house pastiche. Instead Moss Acid delivers a measured and modern sound using the vintage acid box. There’s a definite slice of AFX to the sound. It seems that wherever you turn […]
