The greatest acid house track of all time is Acid Tracks by Phuture. They have never played in NYC. That changes tonight as they will take the stage in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at Verboten.
“Yes there may have been Acid recordings before Phuture – Acid Tracks but this is the one that really propelled the Acid style in chicago clubs, this was originally created and played at the music box by Ron Hardy in 1985 2 years before its release… and they don’t come better than this” – Leroy Skibone
Here’s another wonderful time machine find. Disco Volante is music project based in London from songwriter Terry Tanx. The single No Motion was released in 1984.
“In 1984 Disco Volante released a single “No Motion” C/W “Click” and “Punishment Tank”. The single did not do well commercially and due to a strike in the music press didn’t receive any publicity at all. The whole Electronic Music landscape has changed since the early 1980s. When Disco Volante recorded No Motion, the studio engineer was shocked, when arriving at the studio all of the equipment used on the single could be put into a couple of hold alls. For those interested in the technology the equipment used on the single was: Roland TB 303 Bassline, Roland TR 606 Drum-matix, Roland MC-202 Sequencer, Roland SH-09 Mono synth.” – discovolanteonline.com
