Squelch

Groundbreaking record that invented an entire youth movement anyone?

Phuture’s Acid Trax was released in 1987, twenty three years ago. Listening to it now it still sounds like the future.

DJ Pierre, Spanky and Herb J invented acid house with this record, and it was partly by accident, twiddling and abusing knobs on the Roland TB 303 Bass Synthesiser to get that squelch. Then realising the squelch was the thing. I love happy accidents. It’s minimalist, it’s funky, it’s trippy, it’s loud. It’s one of those records that fills any room it’s being played in.
