Hardfloor are back with a 3 track ep on their own label. Very much looking forward to trying them out on a big system… all three track carry a fir bit of weight. My pick of the bunch is probably the first track Attention, Attention! Hijacked synths!. It will cause absolute mayhem.
You can listen to it here and order directly from Ollie and Remon
There is also a second 12 out with a more classic Hardfloor feel, still with the 303 mayhem and also available from their website
As far as i know, these guys/this guy/has only put a few 12s out, which were well worth picking up on Abstract Acid. This release release follows on nicely where the other ones left off bringing you 4 tracks of 303 based goodness.. intricate 303 patterns makes for some extremely nice tracks.. Highly recommended
Thnks to P Littler for the heads up
If you’ve been sleeping on this label, i suggest getting on it because there has been some absolute gems.. anyway.on to things of a current nature..and the forthcoming 12 from Decious. Delving into the dirty world of sleezy acid house… thoroughly recommend this at volume..preferable in a hot sweaty club….. Ill have to wait and see if the opportunity arises to play it at one….
Leading on nicely from my previous post, an absolute gem from Larry heard again… even more acidic and in the vein of Sun Can’t Compare and What is House but without the Vocal.
Although the 12 on general release is pretty nice on its own, the Dub mixes on a separate 12″ contain the Mr Fingers Dub. Only available on Kai’s website, you get a full length version of Larry deep underground acid is only Larry Heard can do.

Berceuse Heroique is not a label you’d immediately associate with acid house but have been responsible for a catalogue of quality releases spanning Techno, Electro , Electronic Soundscapes and even Dubstep, but let fly with a beast of an acid tracks from Mark Forshaw with a Hieroglyphic Being mix throw in for good measure.
Listen here – Be quick – These dont hang around long
If you were silly enough to sleep on Volume 1, Balkan has unleashed Volume 2. 4 solid tracks of 303 oozing quality. Tracks from Hardfloor, Warlock, Shinra and Acidulant. Each one is an absolute belter.
Listen here and order sharpish as there aren’t hanging around.
Deep in the bowels of Utrecht lies the 030303 label. Often providing a different take on the 303 the offer up RVL from Cologne, The Hills ep. Favourite cut on the 12 is ‘In Sight Out’ and is worth the purchase for that alone. The other tracks have a more ravey feel circa 92/93 which may well be your cup of tea.

No Acid-house update would be complete without a Gehm EP. This one is the second installment on his own label. Tracks from Jared Wilson, The Exaltics, Ekman and Andreas Gehm/Marco Bendig provide the 303 excursions. Exaltics and Ekman deliver a full on assault with the Gehm/Bendig follopwing sut. Jared’s is a less full on affair but an acid line to melt most peoples brain.
Have a listen here. Should be available from everywhere
2 absolute beasts from the Tabernacle stable, heavy on the kick and heavy on the acid and as with the Tabernacle and HFP releases, these are quality.
You can listen here and preorder from the bandcamp page
