About this item
Echovolt continue to switch between the archival and upfront, this time treating us to some contemporary retro from Aquarius TX, a UK duo at the forefront of the 4core scene, pushing to recreate the sound of acid summer '89. Particularly influenced by European pool parties, ATX combines house music with classic acid and floaty euphoria, intended to submerge listeners in hot waves of summer daze. A-side cut "Sunset 17" sees the guys succeed in their mission, turning out tapey 909 perx, blankets of shimmering synth, fizzing acid and occasional jack, all brought together by Chicago-style piano and vocal. This one's gotta be getting rinsed by the Wet Play crew right? "DX-FM" sees the duo diving deeper into the wavey and hazy sound design, submerging a deep but optimistic acid track in melting pitch and lo-fi scuzz, without losing sight of the dancefloor. Dope though the A-side is, the best comes thanks to Mülheim maverick DJ Normal 4 who does it nice and proper, teasing "Sunset 17" with warming breakbeats and trancey sequences to tell you exactly where it's at in 2k19 - savage.
Patrick says: Not only do we get two lo-fi acid jackers from Aquarius TX on the A-side (sound design by walkman @ chewed tape studios), we also get an EPIC rework from Normal 4 on the flip, brimming in breakbeats, acid basslines and trance pads. This is the sound of 2019 folks!
