[ATLP06] Recondite-Placid

When Recondite, AKA Lorenz Brunner, emerged with his debut LP for Acid Test (2012’s On Acid), we were still learning about the German producer’s inward-looking dance floor sound. A few years later, his sinewy jams have proved near universal — like an underground Zelig, he’s fit perfectly everywhere from Rødhåd’s Dystopian to Ghostly International and Innervisions. Acid Test also allows Recondite the chance to indulge his more outré tendencies and a welcome return it is.

[ATLP05] Trickfinger-Trickfinger

The latest chapter in the electronic evolution of guitarist John Frusciante features a new project under his Trickfinger guise and has him utilizing the classic hardware that spawned the eternal acid template. Frusciante’s desire to cede control to machines has paradoxically allowed him to present a singular take on elemental dance music, a brilliant and unexpected entry into Acid Test’s growing canon of modern, 303-focused dance music.

[ATLP04] Tin Man-Ode

What does a rave sound like the next day? The strobe lights in a dark warehouse, the pounding kick, the blur of ecstatic faces lead to a morning-after emptiness, all fade into memories of the friends you once had. On Ode, Tin Man explores this feeling, offering tracks which possess an exhausted joy, the aural equivalent of the stretch of time beginning when the last record is played and stretching on towards the doleful contemplation of last night’s unmade sheets.

[ATLP03] ACHTERBAHN D AMOUR
ODD MOVEMENTS 2LP >>

[ATLP03] Achterbahn D Amour-Odd Movements 2LP

The debut full-length by Achterbahn D’Amour (Johannes “Iron Curtis” Paluka and Jurgen “Jool” Albert), captures two artists coaxing their most emotional sounds to date out of classic Roland boxes.

The album is the natural extension of the duo’s live-rooted sound, further defining the oblique dance moves contained on their three Acid Test EPs. They demonstrate a true reverence for the 303 and 606. On Odd Movements, lush pads and abrupt toms create a literal pedestal for the bassline machine. The duo have hit on a sound well-suited for dark rooms and towering sound systems.

[ATLP02] Tin Man-Neo Neo Acid

Neo Neo Acid, Tin Man’s full-­length continuation of the pivotal Nonneo single, delves further into the mind-body separation. It’s as straightforwardly club-­ready as anything Tin Man has released, but its ambitions are no less lofty: Neo Neo Acid creates a space beyond intellect, a stimulant for creativity at its least abstracted.

[ATLP01] RECONDITE
ON ACID >>

[ATLP01] Recondite-On Acid

Acid Test’s first double pack is a mini album of deep melancholic acid tracks from the Berlin based producer, Recondite. Includes remixes from label mate Tin Man and Scuba. The Bavarian born producer Recondite’s style is soft, melodic, stripped down techno music. Those attributes are certainly linked to the hinterland he grew up in. Thus far, his output on his own Plangent Records has been the only platform he’s released and the “On Acid” album proves his sound has much to offer.

Out March 19th, 2012.

Available in all good record shops.

“Your Love” is a live jam with melancholic chords and reverbed vocals sneaking in. Slow and cranky clocking in at a mere 115 bpm. While the even slower “Talking Acid” has a slo-mo dub vibe with a little 303 bassline.
