Boomkat Product Review:
Felix Hall finally lets his Chrome imprint loose with this stamped promo 7” pressing of an almost mythical early 00's dancehall holy grail, featuring a previously unreleased, extended version of the instrumental alongside two differently mixed vocal cuts on the flip. This one’s a total anomaly, a Dancehall x Acid intersection that spawned countless vocal versions and became a genre all of its own. If you know, you know!
Acid Hall is truly unique; utilising Tadao Kikumoto’s groundbreaking boxes to unleash a genuine vanguard of hypnotic riddim, it's a continuation of a stripped-down sound heard throughout the '90s arriving rather aptly via the robotic rhythm of Prince's 'I Wonder U' and Phuture's - 'Acid Tracks'. With the iconic ‘When Doves Cry” artwork paying dues on the original centre label art, it’s a literal 'Ghost in the Machine’ built around a thundering 303 mutation executed by Edison Electric - perhaps the perfect early insight into the wildest and most futuristic aspects of this era of Dancehall.
Trust that there is a lot coming up on this label, but honestly don’t miss this one - it’s as sought-after and deadly as they come.
