Both sides of this release are absolute acid techno monsters but in the best way possible. This is definitely one of the best SUF releases that I own a copy of. Is it the best SUF release so far? Well it is certainly one of them in my opinion. If you want evidence of that both sides are present on this London acid techno mix: http://i.mixcloud.com/Cnz92
A pretty rare one these days. It is one of less known collaborations of Henry Cullen, even though the music is absolutely insane! The A side pushes along at a rapid pace, building up tension as it progresses. Around the five minute mark it's all insanely hard acid and hard drive. Remosereless, this one avoids the typical structure where there is an obbligatory ninety second break just before the final assault of 303s occur. This one hits you with it right off, and never lets go, in the vein of another hard acid techno favorite of mine, Shaft Punk's Squat Rock.
Porridge Pete is in the more typical vein of the Stay Up Forever legacy. Starts out with only the percussion and scarse sounds wchich accompany it. Slowly adding layers of acid, it just steadily moves on up until the six minute mark. Then this nervous melody enters the track, and for the last three minutes it's all dance floor chaos - uncontrollable strikes of multi layered 303 sequences, hisses and funky beats. Awesome!
Not quite my favorite SUF release, but both tracks are infectious, fast and groovy, with really well modulated and pitched acid synths, huge positive effect when played at parties, and mainly, the music is damn entertaining, well done, and banging!
