Record of the Week

RAW TAKES - 15.11.22

In naming the release Acid Tracks, RAW TAKES gives a nod to the originators of the Acid sound. This is very much followed through in the production with a old skool feel to the beats and acid line, while still sounding fresh for a 2022 dancefloor.

Classic of the Week

Paul Woolford Presents Bobby Peru - Erotic Discourse

First released as a white label in 2005 and then on 20/20 Vision the following year, this track has few elements to it. But with a simple beat and bass line that evolves with extreme distortion and delay effects it creates builds unmatched by many tunes before or since.

One More

Erol Alkan - Sub Conscious

Originally produced for his Fabriclive 77 mix in 2014, this one was finally released in 2020 with remixes from Manfredas, Tin Man & Kamera. Amongst a great remix package, the raw acid line of Alkan's 2014 version mean that none can knock the original of the top spot for me.

Gig of the Week

La Rosa with Lee Pennington, Hansel & Gretel and Leon La Rosa

If you’re looking for a club on Saturday night, our friends at La Rosa are putting on a party at a brand new club space in Soho, The Lower Third.
