ACID

Review: Achterbahn D'Amour - Odd Movements

Paluka and Albert's fixation on bringing the best out of their respective classic Roland boxes (the TB303 and the TR606) forms the basis of the album's distinct sonic result, which is also the sum of their three Acid Test EPs.

Review: Ron Morelli - Spit

For the large part drone-y, loopy, lo-fi, raw and decidedly unmusical in the conventional sense, the short 8-tracker that clocks in at slightly under 35 minutes took me multiple listens, and each time produced a different reaction.

Review: Terrence Dixon - Badge of Honor

With 'Badge of Honor', Detroit techno and its key soldier Terrence Dixon can stand proud...Truly a piece of spellbinding work, please take note.

Review: Ultrademon - Seapunk

Emotive, self-referential, fun and undeniably talented, this album should not be cast away. Outwardly colorful packaging and distractive sideshows aside, careful listening and deeper digging reveal a sensitive artist wanting to be heard and make a difference.

Review: Legowelt - The Paranormal Soul

Channelling otherworldly 'cosmic intuition', Legowelt expertly conjures up some very sweet vintage synth sounds with his collection of analog equipment. Not to be dismissed as a mere exercise in nostalgia - there are nods to early techno, house, acid and rave (or as Legowelt puts it, "90's weird English stuff from all over the place") - the end product is decidedly modern.

Review: The Magic 3

The criteria of what makes a good mix, DJ or otherwise, differ from person to person. Agreed? Now that's out of the way, here are three mixes that have stood out lately, and in no particular order. Apologies that like most things in life, there's neither fancy artwork nor tracklists available for these mixes.

Review: Jackmaster - FabricLive.57

Bit of a change in tack around here, this week's review goes not to the next bright-young-DIY beatmaker, but a tastemaking Glaswegian DJ without a single record to his name.
