The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.
Since it’s Friday, get ready for yet another installment of our look back series, ReWind. Picking up from where we left off last week, some more acid techno for your speakers.
In the spotlight this time is a collaboration between Lochi‘s Chris Liberator and that other British acid techno legend, Guy “Geezer” McAffer. Between the two of them, they have created a raw, concentrated dose of techno that will make acid fans jump out of their chairs.
As is obvious from the name, this track is a bit of a tribute to one of the most influential base line synthesizers of all time : Roland’s Transistor Base 303, or TB-303, for short. Included on The Guardian’s 50 key moments in the history of dance music list, this small, sleek silver box (as Chris & The Geezer put it) had a defining role in the development of contemporary electronic music, most notably the acid house, acid techno and trance movements.
The hard hitting kicks and claps, accompanied by the thundering acid base, make Small Sleek Silver Box one cracking tune to own.
