About this item
In the summer before Covid, Lauren Flax and Posthuman played a b2b show at I Love Acid in London where they agreed to do an double A-side with each remixing the other's track. Here's the item in question, a hand numbered edition of 303 vinyl – clear wax but with wisps of pink and blue haze.
Balkan Vinyl fans aren't gonna be disappointed with the result. A suitably fizzy and frothy duo of hardwired acid house blasts from these two beasts of machine music. Lauren's anthemic "Endless Summer" reminds me of nights spent spewing and spiraling at Sequence or Kindergarten whilst Posthuman's remix of said track injects some tense urgency, suspended synth notes dancing atop of 808 subs. Top!
"Ottomen", by Posthuman is another anthemic number with its bright shiny piano chords giving it some flavour. A skewed vocal snip rides the beat with aplomb, all in all contributing a wonderful slice of late night acid house goodness. Just wait till that grinding low-mid synth tickles your nethers! Flax heads on a lo-fi acid redux - employing spring reverbs, concentric 303s and sharp, short vocal stabs to devastating effect.
Support across the board, just as you'd expect. Limited copies - move quick!
