Listening through the back catalogue of 80 Aum you'll find a familiar pattern as 92 emerged. By the years end the Hardcore scene in Europe imploded. The rave stabs and use of sampled break beats which had been the main stable of the sound for the past few years was unanimously dropped. New styles emerged. Jungle/Darkcore pushed new barriers when they switched from sampling break beats to making them themselves, while Gabba pushed the BPM into the red. Hard Techno dropped the break beats, taking notes from the second wave of Detroit and the new scene in New York, they brought back the TB-303. Eventually this would simply be known as 'Acid' and would form the heart of the harder Techno sound from 92-95.
After Ed Bout and Dave van Hasselaar had given us the dark and mysterious Holographic series on 80 Aum they dropped this bomb on us. The track 11011 sounds like it came from the Holographic sessions. But it was the other 3 which ripped us to shreds Tranquilizer O.D., State Of Acid Trash and Black Monolith. The titles themselves indicating what to expect. Blistering acid lines on top of hard drum patterns with plenty of cowbell, what more could you want?
