    Yes. Dr. J was the track everybody agreed on. So did i. And i still do. But do not forget about Birdman. This track fell a little under the radar, because of its fresh sounding A-Side.

      Everyone is hyping Dr J while Darrin Houston is a quiet favorite.

        oh my does Dr J ever rip. straight forward acid stomp. Indefinable in terms of era. Absolutely free of cheese. This might be one of Woody's best tracks. Never leaves my box. Also good to really get a house set moving... mix with the Kerri Chandler's Atmosphere EP ;)

          "Basketball Heroes" was and remains the quintessential system rockin' minimal acid sound. 303's over devastating kicks and to-the-point minimal drum programming. Nothing more, nothing less. It's all warehouse soul from there. All the Midwestern techno DJs played this record at the time.

              Communique is one of the most solid acid techno labels from the midwest side of the states in Wisconsin. Woody Mcbride gives it his all on this piece. This track has a nice bouncy techno bass. Woody uses a old " this track is fresh" sample that spins backwards. This production has a creative acid line all threw it. This record was one of Communique's top sellers back in the day. Don't pass up on this acid techno banger.
