This 3 tracker contains the original extended mix, a simplified shorter edit and a special bonus treat.
Track 1 - 'Beats & Bacon (Original Mix)' - after a sublime 303 and 808 intro the track slowly builds dropping in some sweet string pads and smooth synth undertones. It progressively builds up to the acid breakdown before once again growing as it winds its way towards the final corrosive outro, but not before implanting itself deeply into your brain.
Track 2 - 'Happy Birthday (Original Mix)' - a special bonus track. Initially recorded on the producers' birthday, a ritual which is performed every year but these gems rarely see a release. With the foundations laid during his current 303 experimentation period the track fits perfectly within this ep. Starting with a simple but rhythmic pounding beat and soothing pad layers before the deeply addictive 303 bass line rises and falls with hypnotic precision as the synth hits punch into the mix. Complementing layers lift the gears while maintaining the acid waves as the track drives to the end.
Track 3 - 'Beats & Bacon (Edit)' - much like the original this shortened version slowly builds but with reduced synth layers, concentrating much more on the beats/ acid/ strings combo. But don't be fooled by the title, this edit packs punch.
