About this item

Hugely sought after repress of the first record on Tone Dropout, with original copies already fetching big bucks amongst the UKs ardent acid collectors. Coming out in 2013, and to some extent superseding what would become the nu-acid resurrection, this tasty battle pack featured three tracks by Dawl and Sween - who'd go on to contribute to much of the label's output. "TRK 1" from Dawl is a skeletal number characterized by compressed claps n snares and decorated by narcotic bleep melodies and rugged low end. "Strange World" takes us plummeting into subterranean world; its juddering beats and advanced sound design painting a multicoloured futurist environment for us to dance and be merry in. On side B Sween takes charge, dropping militant snare patterns of a serotonin-tickling piano line and more acid house infectious. The record that started a revolution! And sounding as fresh as ever, 5 years since its original release. An essential item for acid heads and warehouse DJs and not likely to hand around long.... Move quick!
