    I've been revisiting the harder end of the acid world recently (I think sometimes called acidcore?!). I particularly like Drop Bass Network & Dave Clarke's Magnetic North label for crunchy, lashing stuff...much heftier than the London 'acid tekno' stuff, which I find a bit turgid on the whole (although it has its moments of course). Frankie Bones' brother Adam X's acid stuff is a bit forgotten now, maybe because it's lost in his back catalogue a bit...he did some for Direct Drive, Drop Bass etc. Unfortunately, most of this stuff was too expensive on import for me at the time & is now harshly expensive on Discogs. Theres a lot of acidy stuff from the Spiral Tribe camp but I've been revisiting some of that & its not as wigged-out really...

    dude you're kidding right. that stuff is the most wigged out if anything. admittedly it's more on that super super fast (like Jeff Mills on speed), ultra hard & pounding free tekno kind of wigged out than, say, Mike Ink-style dribbling acid madness. all that crazy 200+ bpm metallic free tekno. like that guy Curley, early Bunker Records, even stuff like Patric Catani. all those extremely harsh & uncompromising strands of continental techno.





    I guess most of that stuff came after they decamped to Europe but tbh their earlier glory days of rave stuff is pretty mental too, if not very acid.

    I'm definitely into recommendations on tracks (I loved "Breach the Peace" etc), but I prefer the "dribbling" stuff I think acid for me is at its best when its going for the "Acid Tracks" chaotic psychedelia rather than the wiggling-slightly-building thing...

    went thru a hard acid phase back in the mid 90s, still have a dozen drop bass network 12"s. great label aesthetic, reminded me of a punk version of electronic dance music: raw, homemade, low-budget sounding stuff from a bunch of burnout acid heads based in either the wilds of the rural midwest or unglamorous/relatively bleak inner-city Milwaukee. DIY, both in output and the local and later regional raves they'd throw.

    they don't do those sorta parties in uk its crusty liberator acid which is shit, just sounds like a linear trance thing as opposed to hardcore. of course the harder sounds have been around in techno for a quite a while now. still sounds a bit self-conscious tho.

    drop bass used to hold their "further" raves in the 90s. after many years, they revived it a couple of years ago, same crew (Kurt Eckes), one annual four-day outdoor campout/party, now called "even further": http://dropbass.net/events/even-furthur-2018/. they even had an old raver ticket discount!

    there was a guy called neurp or something like that who did a series of cologne acid mixes. highly worth tracking down.

    I remember the liquid sky cologne acid scene from the 90s, structure records, DJungle Fever, etc.

    but really if you're unemployed or whatever i would not recommend spending two years blowing your brains out with this stuff.

    used to buy records at temple records in nyc, in the basement of the liquid sky store. khan, db and the guy who ran disko-b records used to work there and always playing all this cologne acid in store (before it evolved into a jungle/d'n b store, then back to house and techno before closing). that's the only reason I know about this stuff.

    used to buy the drop bass 12"s at sonic groove, Frankie bones/heather heart/Adam x behind the counter blasting that shit over the sound system. good times!
