It would be unfair to label Andy Jenkinson merely as a techno producer. He wields acid melodies like an expert Dark Souls player obliterates the Capra Demon. His music may be as nerdy as that reference, but - particularly since 2009 - his releases display immense melodic skills AND a tremendous sense of humour. Something which is distinctly lacking in the vast majority of electronic music.

His music is made using a lot of 80s hardware, but it's thoroughly modern and techno. Both in his live sets and on record you're going to hear the 909, 303 (lots of this of course) and the 101, and a bunch more brilliant 80s synthery on the side. Live, Andy's a great showman, but also pretty humble: those Roland boxes love to magically un-sync themselves at the wrong times and his responses are always hilarious. There is an energy, melodicism and sheer fun element to his music that never becomes tiresome or ironic.

Start with United Acid Emirates or Cro-Magnox then proceed in any direction: if you like acid techno, you will find much to enjoy in his older works, but the newer material is vastly more melodic and varied.

The Acid Zappa, indeed.

If you like what tb-303 can do the best, you'll like Ceephax Acid Crew. CAC is a synonym for the acid in modern sound.
His soundcapes range from psychedelic and smooth idm to acid housey stuff to hardcore/gabber-ish to drum'n'bass to noise to 8-bit to oh-so-odd melodies and sometimes weird(but good) vocals.
He can be temptatingly slow and hyperactive in the same time, but anyway gives you a reason to grab your ravingshoes and start dancing.
I haven't been fortunate enough to witness his live set yet, but obviously he's the man of the machines. So on his gigs there wont be a dark figure of a man in the corner with a apple shaped dim light in front of him. But instead tables filled with synths and drum machines and mixers and cd-players and all that stuff i don't know about..
He's also a good friend with mic, harmonica and megaphone.

A trippy true original!

This guy blew me clear off my feet at this years's (2005) Glade festival. A live performance injected with a lot of humour and some fantastic noises. In Jenkinson's hands the sound of the 303 has taken on a new and important role that has surpassed the lame and predictable offerings from the psy trance and acid techno camps. With a nod towards yesterday's hero's from Detroit, Chicago, Holland and Germany Ceephax pushes the acid sound to the limit, from one end of the sonic spectrum to the the other. Pummelling technoid pounders, spazzed out breakbeats and other assorted genre-defying experiments allow Jenkinson smash the wonders of acid into those fortunate enough to witness his live performance.

"new and important role that has surpassed the lame and predictable offerings from the psy trance and acid techno camps" - so well said, Ha :)
