Back To the Days of Acid House with New Remix
July 18, 2011
Acid house is a sub-genre of house music that emphasizes a repetitive, hypnotic and trance-like style, often with samples or spoken lines rather than sung lyrics. Acid house’s core electronic squelch sounds were developed by mid-1980s DJs from Chicago who experimented with the Roland TB-303 electronic synthesizer-sequencer. Acid house spread to the United Kingdom, Australia, and continental Europe, where it was played by DJs in the early rave scene. By the late 1980s, copycat tracks and acid house remixes brought the style into the mainstream, where it had some influence on pop and dance styles.
Among those influenced by this movement were none other the members of Human Life. For their latest remix the trio takes us straight back to the warehouse and delivers a simple yet addictive tool for the dancefloor. 808 sub-bass plays with squelchy 303 basslines alongside a mesmerising classic r&b vocal sample to make this track at home on dancefloors from Chicago to Tokyo.
