It's Friday . . . Let's Dance
It's back to the days of one off night's in dilapidated old warehouses and industrial units, if you were lucky enough to find them and absolutely bizarre and wonderful slabs of machine made music on import on mediocre to really crap vinyl, you know who you are Trax records.
By the time DJ Pierre, Earl Smith and Herbert Jackson and crew released We Are Phuture in 1988 they had already produced the definitive piece of Acid House for me with Acid Trax. Where could they possible take the genre? To the future of course with this pounding almost industrial sounding track complete with weird dark vocal introduction from Spanky Smith and a wicked acid line. Fucking lovely stuff.
This track is included on an absolutely essential FIVE disc compilation of early acid and deep house sounds compiled by Terry Farley for anybody with any interest in the genre. I am a great lover of vinyl as you know but to hear some of these without the background noise on some of the 12" singles is a pleasure just wish that it was possible to turn the clock back twenty five years and relive those heady days.
Have a good weekend people. I will be mostly watching Airdrie and hoping that the new manager can do something to save us from languishing at the bottom of the Scottish Second Division.
