Proper peak time 303 acid tune here in the track called Palmer. You can tell it's a mid 90's tune straight away. While you have all the urgent 303 noises, the bass line is more goa/psy trance based and i guess that acid techno as it is today with the bass driving the track, morphed from this kind of tune. Here, the acid leads the way. Crank it up to +5 to mix it with current acid techno, or leave it at 0 for the sort of tune you can play early morning to refresh those all night ravers!
Either way a top tune.
If you like your acid, find this record!

Although I feel my 'raving' days are behind me, my record collection purged of those cheap nasty adrenalin drug-fuelled bangin' nosebleed tunes, there are a very few that remained, saved by sheer originality and the ability to sear themselves into my mind when straight by provoking adrenalin rushes that make me want to jack my body.

This is one of them. I am by no measure an expert on at all on acid techno, I do not frequent the (mostly) illegal squat parties where I believe it is still the dominant musical genre; but 'Palmer' neatly summarises what I love about it, the raw energy, the trance-inducing yet urgent undulating sound of the 303. When I relive my second youth, I will want more tracks like this.

A: ★★★★★
