referencing Remote Control Hearing / Full Throttle / Tracers, 12", S.U.F. 13:000 m.g.

Absolutely amazing! The A1 tune is an intense acid techno stomper with pushing acid drive and fast paced beats, and a fat, juiced up acid bass. Four to the floor madness goes hand in hand with frenetic old school acid. Very raw and unpolished - acid techno fury!
A2 starts out like many stripped down to the core, harder and angular minimal techno tunes of the time. But then suddenly around the two minute mark an insanely dope acid sequence is dropped, and it drives the entire track up and down the highest walls. The whole tune goes on a wild rampage for almost three minutes non stop, takes a break some time before the five minute mark, and then goes at it once again with all might around the six minute point. The track is turgid with rabid acid synths dashing all over the place. Spectacular old school acid techno, no breaks!
The flip side has Tracers, apparently a live recording. Sounding like a lost transmission from Mars, it patiently builds and pummels along, until this bleeping siren like hook is dropped around the three and a half minute mark, and from there on - voila - you have a proper old school raver's anthem: fast percussion, with pulsating sound effects, and an underlying layer of acid quietly erupting and surfacing towards the track's last third. For the last minute and some change, the (by now) dominant acid lead goes for one final assault hand in hand with the hook, and the result is an old schooler's wet dream. You know, overalls, gas masks, whistles and crazy hair cuts...
I really, really like this EP a whole lot. Maybe not as chunky, funky and tongue in cheek as some more venerated S.U.F. releases, but these two guys are on top of their game here for sure. Stomping and hard techno, hard, drilling acid and punching bass lines are on the menu throughout. All of it is raw, thrown right at ya, and above all, so damn anthemic and dance floor devastating. Now, if only I could understand the low discogs rating users graced this one with...
