Don't forget

these UK acid techno incredible monster's by some of my fave well maybe committed acid individuals who have maybe have lost their old skool touch or forgotten their tree :(

Watership Down would feature IMHO

An acid General Woundwort would give me an aneurysm = DAW

3 superb mixes to rejuvinate any young or ageing soul

And I must admit 20 years now since these were released, sorry they absolutely piss all over the new stuff :)

Just listen

Thanks

Then there's Lawrie Immersion's take, which is frankly brilliant. He spins a dark version of this tune, featuring a driving, dirty breakbeat and majorly teasing kick intro, lovely 303 mayhem and big dark synth sounds on the breakdown, all garnished elegantly with the sample "that was fuckin' trippy" from Pulp fiction (innit? Correct me if I am wrong...;-] Sure you will!) to devastating effect.

"Kris Needs' Kek Detonator Mix" is 10 minutes of heavy 303 artillery and can only be described as the aural equivalent of being run over by a train.

Introducing itself with a repeated distorted guitar sound then catchy little breakbeat and 909 hat patterns the track pauses for a couple of seconds with the "A large Chinese rabbit..." sample before the kick and 303 begin.

What follows over the next 8.5 minutes is a climax of epic proportions as the filter twiddling begins and that little silver box screams louder and harsher than you've ever heard. Clattering percussion and stab sounds are dispersed in increasing amounts to urge the track forward to it's second breakdown.

Just when you think it's all over at the 5 minute mark the 303 resumes with a second, even more distorted 303 line, tearing through the track, filters soaring higher and higher with gritty distortion and incredible power.

It's impossible to convey in words just what this track sound like. It's harsh, dirty and an incredible testament to the greatest accidental sound in dance music.

Long live the unmistakable sound of the Roland TB-303.
