A debut release on FINA WHITE from one of the most influential UK acid pioneers, Affie Yusuf.
Hailing from Southampton on the south coast of England, Affie has been producing techno, acid, and house music for over two decades. Launching his career in 1993 on Ferox Records with Russ Gabriel, this was to be the first of many record labels to be run by Affie. He has gone on to grace heavyweight labels such as Force Inc. Music Works, Superstition Records, Inertia as well as founding 909 Perversion, House of 909 and now FINA White.
The lead track, "Roland Hardware", builds in energy from its intro of dark distorted vocals into trippy, acid fueled masterpiece. With its looping hooks it steadily increases in intensity to a crescendo of the kind of distorted bliss that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end. An underground floor filler that harks back to a golden age of acid house.
Taking things a little deeper, "Shinkantuiisu" beautifully combines infectious funky grooving percussion with a dream esque melody. An elegant track with an enticing refrain and a rhythm that will have feet tapping and get any party started.
"Spirit Acid" rounds off this EP in fine style. This is acid house in its purest form with 909 beats, piano and a driving baseline. A psychedelic journey that is bound to get a great reaction in peak time sets.
With this EP it is evident that Affie's passion for acid house is as strong as ever. A talented producer making the music he loves.
