In the ever-evolving realm of electronic dance music, two revered icons, Paul van Dyk and DJ Pierre, known as PHUTURE, have joined forces to deliver a fresh, exhilarating 3-track EP titled ‘ACID TRAXXX.’ This EP, with its title track paying homage to PHUTURE’s groundbreaking 1987 single “Acid Tracks,” aims to bridge the gap between the classic and contemporary soundscape. With its signature 303 basslines and pulsating acid house synths, ‘ACID TRAXXX’ is poised to captivate both seasoned fans and newcomers to the genre.
Revisiting the Past
Clocking in at a staggering 8-and-a-half minutes, “ACID TRAXXX” is designed to transport listeners back to the golden era of warehouse raves. Its pulsating bassline and rhythmic hi-hats exude an unmistakable peak-hour energy that promises to immerse you in the euphoria of the moment. The monumental second buildup in the drop is bound to send shivers down your spine.
DJ Pierre’s Unique Offering
‘ACID TRAXXX’ also boasts solo singles from both DJ Pierre and Paul van Dyk. DJ Pierre’s track, “PHUTURE ACiD!” seamlessly picks up where “ACID TRAXXX” leaves off. The acid synths are powerful, and the urgency of the drop intensifies with the rising hi-hats. Featuring an electrifying breakdown, DJ Pierre reaffirms his status as a pioneering figure in the world of acid house.
Paul van Dyk’s Sonic Masterpiece
Paul van Dyk’s solo track, “FILTY ACID,” elegantly ties the EP together, harmoniously bridging the gap between old-school nostalgia and the contemporary “big room techno” that has taken the festival scene by storm worldwide.
