Great double lp records ! Two very good acid techno tracks from
Dj Richie hawtin that we can hear in a spiral tribe set in 1996 ! We can play in 33 or 45 rpm if you want acidcore !

A really nice snapshot of a style of music that was already bygone at the time it was released but it's a really cool mixture of electronic styles made by white people. While much of the Plus 8 label lacks the groove and organic style of the music it was trying to copy out of Detroit, it has it's own charm. I like this especially as it sounds as if it was recorded fast or possibly was meant for demo purposes. Oh and the fact you can play it in live mix to people to dance to is what is best about it and it causes massive curiosity because this was very rare even when released and no one knows it exists. This was on the wall at Dr.Disc - (a block away from where Probe passed away - according the back cover) for several months before I purchased it back in 1996 . There was maybe 3 copies. My copy is the black wax, has no printing on the label and side A and C have to be started from the middle of the record, a bit annoying. gimmicks are for kids. I just sold my copy for around the price I paid for it in 1996, 15 bucks.

I've had this double pack since it came out in 1996 and is one of the few records never to leave my box and was one of the first to be digitized. Still packs the floors to this day and is still one of the best starter tracks of any set (Creator specifically).
Hawtin might have turned douchey of late, but this has and will stand the test of time.

One of the last truly great acid house records. This record displays how acid is the true link between house and techno. As a dj, this is the perfect record to take your sets from light to dark sounds.

Dirty raw dancefloor acid for people who like it pure.
Every track is sick uncompressed analogue madness, if your gonna kill a record label this is way to do it - go out on a real high.
