Must be about time for another acid techno track, crank up the hifi and shake off a few cobwebs whilst being reminded of darkened semi-legal parties in unusual areas of London back in the mid-nineties. One of many tracks from the acidic partnership of Damon Wild and Tim Taylor but probably the most popular and well known. A stomping beat for the feet and 303 b-lines for the head.
If you’re not familiar with the work of Vince Watson then this is an excellent place to start. A live set that collated most of his then recent productions and remixes and as such an ideal introduction to his crisp techno ‘flava’. Just short of an hour long, it avoids getting too relentless with the beats and has plenty of lush sounds to keep you interested; hell, it would make a good workout mix if you’re that way inclined!

Acid Techno – want to know what it sounds like? Click on the flash player above and you’ll have over thirteen minutes assaulting your eardrums and brain. The sound of grimy squat parties in the 90s, massive speaker stacks emitting thousands of kilowatts of sound. A track owing it’s existence to the Roland TB-303 which had first been used for this purpose around ten years earlier.
This is a great ride of deep house and techno, expertly blended and highlighting some of the lesser known releases that were likely overlooked at the time. Producers such as Ray Castoldi, Jamie Read and Chris Brann jostle in rhythmic time with others that I wasn’t even aware of until I heard this, some sought after and hard to get as well. Forget my pithy introduction though and click on the links below for a fuller description from the horse’s mouth…
