UK techno producer Rudosa‘s Moments In Time label will be releasing a 5 track V/A on March 6. MIT’s second overall release includes Rudosa’s track “Dominance” — an impressive follow-up to his recent tracks on Suara (Big Cloud EP), We Are The Brave (Work It EP) and his remix of Joyhauser’s “Entropy” on Phobiq (released on February 7).
We asked the prolific artist to share with us a playlist of his six favorite acid tracks, past and present, new and classic for 5 Mag’s SELECT series.
Jeff Mills: Step To Enchantment
Starting off with an absolute classic from Jeff Mills. This one is from 1993 and still sounds as fresh as any modern acid track around at the moment. The groove on the whole track is ridiculous, I can’t help but dance to this one!
Charlotte de Witte: Selected
This one is more of a fresh record but Charlotte is killing it on the acid sound, especially on her new label Kntxt. I really like how she lets the acid line take control in the track with atmosphere and minimal drums. It’s a clever way to produce and always goes down well in my sets.
Rudosa: Move With Me
I have selected this one of mine as I would say it was the first acid record I had real success with. I wanted a huge final drop with spoken word female vocals through the breaks to build tension. This was picked up by most of the big DJs and elevated the Rudosa project to another level.
Regal: Acid Is The Answer
This is one of my favourite Regal tracks. I love the idea of the vocal which nods to “Music Is The Answer.” The atmosphere is great with the pads in the breaks and not to mention the wicked acid line to go with it.
Chris Liberator & Sterling Moss: Scum Like Us Like Acid
This one is an absolute MONSTER!!! Normally I play this when I have a long closing set as it melts the dancefloor to bits. One of the most intense acid tracks ever!
Darc Marc: Dirty Rocking Bass
Pure Noise, 2019.
Another heavy closing record, “Dirty Rocking Bass” was a vinyl-only release. It’s super fast with an addictive vocal line and has recently been re-released in a much slower tempo on Nicole Moudaber’s MOOD Records.
