Wow just when you though you had explored all acid house music variations since collecting in 1988 at the birth of Acid, this came up.
Unknown to me, snapped it up straight away and was blown away by the trax. All 808 and 303, what was then experimental Indian music, is now seen as Acid House. One for the collectors sure to gain tremendous value over the years.

This is a truly unique recording because of the experimentation, and year and where it comes from.

So far ahead of time... Go on challenge those who claim acid came from England or USA in 1986.1985?? hit them with this..

Really odd record. Supposed to be recorded in 1982, sounds like a trance album of 90s.
