Acid House

Characterized by the “squelchy” sound of the tweaked knobs of Roland’s 303 electronic bass machine, Acid House was developed in Chicago by Phuture and at the close of the 1980s had become a worldwide phenomenon. Acid is still popular in electronic music with a constant stream of new tracks created both by the original 303, soft synths and gear which emulate the original sound.
