Cat no: Corrosive90902
Release date: 15/10/11
Get it from: 909 London

Let Me Know – A.P & Josh Inc.
BPM:
148
The funk is well and truly brought here, thanks to a grimy rap and general sense of busy-ness that keeps things bouncing along – so much so that you barely even notice the lack of 303. Fans of the duo’s last release on Cluster should like this one.

Recharge Remix – Tassid
BPM: 150
Tassid gets his hands on Austin Corrisive’s Recharge and the result is a deep and dark techno workout. He’s taken out the acid patterns but retained the sinister, tribal beauty of the original as well as the chanting, which he ghosts in every now and then. Also new is a ‘recharge it’ vocal sample, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss the 303.

Roll Em Phat – Mobile Dogwash
BPM: 146
Okay, so far this latest release from acid overlords Corrosive has been noticeably free of acid. A 303 free jamboree, you might say. But Mobile Dogwash put that right with a set of fat, filthy riffs that bark like angry guard dogs in the night. Powerful and dirty, filthy McNasty, it’s awesome stuff.

Raw ‘n’ Dirty – Tassid
BPM: 145
Tassid foregoes the acid for a techno sex workout. ‘Dirty!’ it goes, ‘Raw ‘n’ dirty, hot track!’ alongside a sleazy, hip-rolling kick that breaks down to the rap at 3.43 and resumes with even more power. Irresistibly funky.

Day Off – Zoid
BPM: 145
Itchy, bug-eyed acid flits in and out of paranoid percussion, then breaks down at around four minutes with samples of a news report (from what? I’d love to know) before firing back up into kaleidoscopic patterns. While the rest of the EP is pure head-nod, this one invites you to really listen, and you can tell Zoid’s stretching out here. In place of power is texture and the track has an urgent feel to it that extends beyond the demands of the dancefloor. We likey much.

Incidentally, Tassid, Zoid and Mobile Dogwash all feature in the Autumnal Acidity mix.
