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.
I’ve noticed that there hasn’t been an acid techno ReWind in quite a while (over 2 months), and that’s just sad. Luckily, it’s about to change.
Keen readers might’ve noticed that whenever I recommend an acid techno track, it’s often from the back catalogue of legendary British label group Stay Up Forever. Set up in 1993 by Chris, Aaron and Julian Liberator, it now incorporates a massive selection of labels, dedicated to all techno sub genres. Not only that, but they offer the releases in both CD and vinyl format, which is great news for fans of the older format.
This week, I’ve eyed release number 95 from SUF, a collaboration between label founder Chris Liberator and fellow techno DJ and partner in production, Sterling Moss. Between the two of them, they’ve produced an impressive number of tracks over the years, but since I can’t possibly feature all of them in one post, I’ve settled upon the AA side of SUF95.
Massive Line is as descriptive a title as any. The kicks hit, and hit hard, the 303 is out in full force, and the vocal sample further emphasizes the overall point of the track. A really well executed acid riff is timeless, and luckily, this is one of them.
There is really no point in further blabbering about it, since the sample will do all the talking. To quote, “I’ve got a massive line. Listen to the base line. Rock it.”
