Acid House Style Overview
Acid House Music Description
A form of Chicago house music that emerged in the later 1980's that is mainly made using a monophonic synthesizer called the Roland TB-303 Bass Line, together with the Roland TR-606 Rhythm Composer drum machine. Differs from classic "Chicago" house in that it's very hypnotic and repetitive, and usually contains sampled or dub vocals instead of a unique, full vocal song.
There is a separate 'acid' tag for acid-style records not in a house mode, such as acid techno, etc.
The style of dance that exploded American house music around the world, Acid House first appeared in the mid-'80s in the work of Chicago producers like DJ Pierre, Adonis, Farley Jackmaster Funk, and Phuture.
