Acid+Breakbeats/Electro+Acid 1987-1994

Acid type tracks, not necessarily made with a 303 but sound like acid, combined with non 'four to the floor'. Either sampled breaks/breakbeats or programmed drum machine type rhythms such as electro or freestyle beats which are not straight house beats. Or a mixture of both straight house, syncopated and broken rhythms.

I've always enjoyed this combination, unfortunately it wasn't a very common or popular phenomenon during the early underground electronic, house, acid house, hardcore scene. We had to mainly rely on DJs mashing up and remixing these two types of sounds live and on the fly instead.

  6. Both contain acid type sounds. Exorcist and Homicidal are the tracks which are fundamentally built on acid though. Exorcist is an absolute slammer. Homicide was never as good although typically and predictably more popular with the cheese-core massive. And to be fair the cheese-core massive were pretty massive!
