ACID Will Survive! DJ Pierre was at the beginning and continues to bang out the pounding driving ACID rhythms today. From the beginning to now ACID has evolved and changed but the driving hypnotic squelchy baselines immediately take you home.
The ACID 88 Album is a compilation of legends from across the world banging out the nights with ACID TRAX. This album was compiled by DJ Pierre—acid creator & part of the legendary group Phuture. It is a largely diverse group of tracks that really dive into the heart of ACID.
This album contains two songs from two very legendary ACID artists that have as of the date this release passed on. It is dedicated to these two Men and their lifes dedication to ACID. RIP Andreas Ghem & RIP DJ Spank Spank. These men have 100 of releases between them and we are very fortunate to release one of their last tracks. This album has taken over a year to compile and we were very blessed to have retrieved both tracks months in advance. This album is dedicated to the memories of them. On a very personal note DJ Spank Spank has been a part of the Afro Acid family from the beginning. He has left a void in our group that we will all just learn to live without. We will move on and ACID will survive.
The ACID 88 Compilation contains tracks from amazing artists and we hope you enjoy the journey it takes you on.
released December 26, 2016
Compiled by DJ Pierre featuring DJ Spank Spank, Andreas Gehm, DJ Pierre, Paul Funk, Luke Vibert, Tyree Cooper, K'Alexi Shelby, Consequence, Ty'Z, Posthuman, Mr. C, and Rio Lothario Lee.
By far my favorite release by Posthuman. The tracks are a lot more melodic while still sounding funky and bouncy, but it never loses that deep, hypnotic acid-vibe.
Excellent stuff, not to mention the more atmospheric, ambience-inspired bonus tracks! I love it when artists aren't afraid to experiment.
Overall, it's wonderful! Imagine Wagons
