Following up one of our favourite acid-tinged LPs of last year (Auto Sound City's - "Funk"); esteemed Yorkshire based acid n jack merchants Weapons Of Desire drop a fresh V/A to kick of 2023 in fine style.
"Machine Funk Vol. 2" sees six more producers (some new to the label, others returning friends) molest the 303s, 808s and 909s in a totally inappropriate yet highly infectious manner; twisting and contorting around jakbeat, sherm-house and warped acid in a style that'd have Adonis and Ron Hardy themself biting off their bottom lip and twirling their underpants around their heads manically. There’s even a Millsian techno wobbler courtesy of Dez Williams.
Seriously crew, this is some of best low-down, deep n dirty jack shit we've heard for a while - and it's still fuckin January! Get me in a club on a nexus flip quick!
Andreas Gehm, Auto Sound City, Iron Blu, Steve Summers, Dez Williams and Scott Fraser and churning out illicit, crotch-grabbing box jams for getting sultry in the shadows or going at it hell for leather - your choice. There is no escape from these wild and wicked scorched circuits. Highly tipped here by Kickin Pigeon and likely to fly out before the first warehouse party of the year. You need.
