Boomkat Product Review:
Smudged ambient electronica fuzz, revealing the tender side of the artist who also trades as DrumC*nt
“Acidliner, the London based producer, has captured the sounds of a primordial planet just emerging at the beginning of it's life. Rubbing it's eyes as light appears for the first time. The mist is clearing. It's arms are stretching out and reaching for it's first ever coffee. The sun is breaking through the fug, hitting the planet with the solid shafts of light you see depicted in Church stain glass windows. The type of light you see breaking through your dust riddled living room. The type of light that'll be shining down long after you've gone. There's optimism in the chimes, there's trepidation in the repetition, there's dreams buried in the rare beats. Anything feels possible.
The modern age human marching through it's life is gripped with the future, the current moment counts for nothing. Red-1 sits you down at the beginning and tells the story. Take a breath. In and out. Sit still for a minute. Remember how it all was. Think about the thing you're on, the thing that was here before you, the thing that'll be here for your future yous. The 12 tracks on this tale trawl the underwater depths of Drexciya's Neptune Lair, the thick foggy gloop of Gas' Königsforst and Stevie Wonder's long lost and forgotten classic The Secret Life Of Plants. Take some time and dig in, Acidliner is holding the steering wheel.”
