Phuture – Acid Trax
Imitations are floating around…but it takes the creators of the original to do justice to a remake of one of the most influential tracks in music history. Mixmag listed Acid Tracks, the original, in their top 25 tracks that has shaped music history in all genres. DJ Pierre, one of the creators, of the original has teamed up with another Chicago Legend of Electronic Green Velvet AKA Cajmere, known for massive hits such as “LA LA Land” and “The Percolator”. The result is “Acid Trax 2011″, the official revamped release of ACID Trax originally by the masters-Phuture. DJ Pierre and Green Velvet teamed up to totally re-produce this acid anthem. With the old acid re-tweaked, new drums and sound FX added along with a wicked breakdown- Acid Trax 2011 is ready to dominate the new millennia as it did the last.
On the remix tip Kris Menace adds his own high tech German styled Electro Techno to his remix which is absolutely BANGIN!!!! Angel Alanis also adds 2 high quality slammin Tech House mixes for the house head purists.
Also added as a special Bonus track we’ve included the original mix re-mastered and sped up to meet todays faster bpm standard!
Acid Trax 2011! It’s on!!!! ACIIIIEEEEEED!!!!!!!
DJ Pierre, acid house creator and WildPitch innovator, has been re-inventing himself and his art for years. He is best known for his role in the creation of Acid House using the Roland 303 while in the group Phuture.
A few years back he introduced the “afro acid” way of djing which includes all styles of electronica. Building on that he has now introduced a LIVE element to his sets! Pierre is now using the Roland 303, the very instrument that shaped his sound, to create another LIVE dimension to his talent.
This is a new re-work/remake of the Original ACID track by Phuture that started it all. DJ Pierre and Green Velvet teamed up to totally re-produce this acid anthem. With the old acid re-tweaked, new drums, added sound FX and breakdowns Acid Trax is ready to dominate the new millennia as it did the last.
