Anybody else got their eye on this?



Press release:

-----

It was 25 years ago in 1988 when the Acid House sound created a musical revolution in the UK following the success of London’s Shoom and Hedonism, whilst, at the same time, Manchester was kick starting the movement in the North of England with the Hacienda’s Hot and Nude nights. Acid House continued its corrosive effect on the late 80’s party crowd with new clubs opening up almost every month throughout 1988 – R.I.P., Spectrum, Zoo, The Trip, Apocalypse Now, Legends, the State, Rage, Sunrise to name a few.

By the summer of 1988 aka ‘the second summer of love’, Acid House was something of a national sensation in the UK with the political establishment seeing the movement as a threat to law and order and the tabloid press vilifying the movement and its main symbol, the smiley face.

But what exactly was Acid House? Internationally renowned DJ and House expert, Terry Farley has painstakingly compiled 5 CD’s which trace the movement’s beginnings and the incredible 6 years when this underground music from Chicago dominated the UK dance floors and spread throughout the world. To accompany this furious aural assault is a 32 page booklet written and curated by Miles Simpson, founder of the influential House Music blog, ‘Beyond the Stars’, interrogator of legendary DJ’s and all-round House expert. Plus, of course, pages of scans, flyers and key photos from the period from the Terry Farley archives.

The repercussions of the original movement are still being felt today, with a new generation of House Music DJ’s and Clubs taking their cues from the original Acid House sound, which is currently enjoying something of a cultural renaissance via the current European/UK Deep House and Techno scenes with a new generation of DJ’s both playing and making music from this incredibly innovative period with direct influences from many of the actual Chicago classics featured within this box set. Most of the original producers of these Acid and Deep classics are also now once again in big demand with names like Frankie Knuckles, Gene Hunt, Bam Bam, DJ Pierre, Jaimie Principle, Virgo 4, Marshall Jefferson and Derrick May among others, headlining gigs in London, New York, Berlin and Ibiza. Additionally a whole new generation of today’s major DJ’s are using the influences of early Acid and Deep House including, D.J. T, Kink and Jamie Jones among many others. The sound of ‘85/’91 never went away but is now massive again with a new generation of young club goers and young producers. Here is the source!

‘Acid Rain: Definitive Original Acid & Deep House 1985-1991’ is the ultimate must-have collection for anyone who is serious about their House Music history and the influences this genre has had over the subsequent 25 years.

Somewhat baffled Guardian review by Alex Petridis:

-----

In his sleevenotes to Acid Rain, the DJ and producer Terry Farley makes some pretty grand claims for the music contained on its five CDs. He compares its importance to that of Chuck Berry or Miles Davis and John Coltrane: it has "resonated across the decades" and continues to exert such a vast influence today that it's hard to imagine what music in 2013 would sound like had it not existed. There are those who would doubtless scoff at this kind of thing, but equally, there are those who would tell you that counts as underselling its impact. Some people will swear blind that – in Britain, at least – acid house and the culture it inadvertently inspired actually led to lasting social changes, affecting everything from how offices are designed to how late the pubs stay open; had breweries not been so horrified by the number of people eschewing alcohol for ecstasy in the 90s, they wouldn't have lobbied so hard for a change in licensing laws.

One thing is certain: the music on Acid Rain was audibly not made to last. Most of the tracks here had to be remastered from vinyl. At the exact point in the 1980s when the music industry began thinking seriously about curating rock and pop history, because it realised there was money to be made from memories – the era when painstakingly compiled, carefully annotated CD box sets like this one first started appearing – record labels in Chicago didn't keep the master tapes of their local producers' work, because the idea that anyone in the future would be interested seemed laughable. To say that the people who made it had ambitions that extended no further than the city limits might even be stretching it; some of them had ambitions that extended no further than one of the city's clubs. Powered by the hypnotic alien chatter of an overdriven Roland TB-303 bass synthesiser, acid house's relentless, churning repetition often seemed like a concerted effort to capture the hedonistic abandon of the Muzic Box on Michigan Avenue: the first acid house single of all, Phuture's Acid Tracks, was so associated with the club and its legendary resident DJ that it was initially known as Ron Hardy's Acid Track. In fact, Hardy had already attempted to capture the drugged madness of the Muzic Box. Acid Rain contains his 1985 single Sensation – so brutal, minimal and utilitarian it makes your average early acid track sound like the height of complexity. It didn't have the weird futuristic quality of the 303-driven tracks that followed, but you can almost smell the perspiration and the smoke as it plays.

It's intended as no slight to his rival Chicago DJ Frankie Knuckles (for whose club, The Warehouse, house music was originally named, and whom you can hear on Acid Rain inching towards its sound on a previously unreleased 1984 version of Bad Boy, a weird, gay, black take on European synthpop) to say that Hardy's shadow looms largest over the music on this box set. Frankie Knuckles was big on house music's spirituality: though he was capable of making music as luxuriantly filthy as his other contribution to Acid Rain, Baby Wants To Ride (simultaneously a fantastic record, and not so much a song as a man loudly drawing attention to his erection for eight and a half minutes), more often something of the gospel tradition and the godfearing midwest seeped into his grooves, as on Your Love and Tears.

As perhaps was to be expected from music born out of a shocking bacchanal, presided over by a heroin addict whom even his biggest fans concede was a bit of a horror ("Everybody hated Ron Hardy, he was mean and nasty," recalled producer Marshall Jefferson, represented here by Virgo 4's R U Hot Enough and Sleezy D's I've Lost Control, "but he was the greatest DJ that ever lived"), acid house was fuelled by a noticeably darker energy. You wouldn't describe the sound of a track like Dr Derelict's That Shit's Wild as funky so much as writhing. There's nothing uplifting about the music Jefferson came up with on I've Lost Control: instead, it feels hypnotic, obsessive, deranged. If you didn't know that this was music that came to be inexorably associated with the euphoria of ecstasy, that soundtracked something called the Second Summer of Love, you'd never guess. You listen to Bam Bam's astonishing Where's Your Child? and wonder how bewildering and terrifying it must have sounded to a parent who caught it spilling out of their kid's bedroom at the height of the UK's moral panic about acid-house raves and ecstasy: a voice slowed down until it sounds demonic, delivering a kind of public-information film voiceover – "Don't let your kid out late at night, they don't know wrong from right" – punctuated with cackling laughter and the sampled screams of a baby.

It was supposed to be parochial, intended to evoke something local and unique. As it turned out, the makers of acid house had hit on something universal and timeless. No music before or since has better captured the sweaty, blank-eyed intensity of being lost on a dancefloor in the small hours: you didn't have to be in the Muzic Box, surrounded by people so maddened by drugs and the sheer volume at which Hardy played that they would cry or faint or start having it off with each other, to know that weird, simultaneously elated and faintly troubling otherworldly feeling. It's one of the reasons why the music on Acid Rain doesn't really feel dated, despite being packed with sounds that were the cutting edge 25 or 30 years ago: stuttering n-n-n-n-nineteen vocals; harsh sampled orchestral stabs; drum machines that sound like machines, technology having not yet worked out how to make them sound like drums. There's something shocking about the fact that Laurent X's Machines dates from the same year as Bros's When Will I Be Famous? and Hue and Cry's Looking For Linda: it sounds like it could have been released yesterday.

Acid house, at least as defined by this box set, could communicate more than the feeling of temporarily losing your mind in front of the big speakers at 3am. At the end of Acid Rain comes another Jefferson production, Jungle Wonz's Time Marches On. It seems wistful and heartbreaking today, a kind of eulogy for a moment in time long passed. But that wasn't how it would have sounded 25 years ago. Then, its lyrics – "Nothing stays the same, there's always change" – must have seemed a defiant statement of belief that the future belonged to house music, an equivalent of one of those ancient singles that bullishly predict rock'n'roll's longevity. And like those records, its predictions proved to be exactly right.

Interesting comments, as ever, on the Guardian story.

You might also like to play the samples at Amazon whilst you read that lot, and see if you can resist clicking to Pre-Order the 5CD set for £17.07.

Love a bit of aciiiied but I tend to prefer hearing it in a mix on the whole, looks like a good comp though, they should do a similar collection for old hip-house stuff too.

I like the two tracks someone dropped in the guardian comments at the end.

especially this one Kettle - wombat

5 discs of this could be too much for me. It's a shame there's not a double disc version coming out.

I was thinking the same. Mind you it's listed as
£17.07 today on Amazon which is very reasonable for a 5 disc set.

...and it might well replace a couple of older compilations I've been keeping for one or two tunes. Mind you, I say that far more often than I throw anything out.

I'm drinking down the Acid Rain thirstily, but there's an outside chance that the following box might be too much even for me...

Traxbox - The Trax Records Box Set - The First 75 Complete Trax 12" Releases





Trax Records is probably the most important House music label of all time. Created in Chicago in 1984, the independent imprint quickly became the go-to company for anyone who was making House music in Chicago from 1985 onwards.

Originally owned by the larger-than-life Larry Sherman and managed day to day by ‘Screamin’ Rachel Cain, Trax Records officially launched in 1985 with Le Noiz’s “Wanna Dance” and crested the wave of both the House Music and Acid House scenes for the next 5 years with literally dozens and dozens of club hits and dance-floor smashes.

The label was renowned for its almost punk ethic of simply getting the releases out fast and furiously without much in the way of obvious design values or quality control. Their releases were generally pressed on recycled vinyl and housed in recycled card sleeves – in fact, it was not unusual to open the record and see bits of paper pressed into the vinyl and old printing on the inside of the sleeves! However, the operation perfectly suited the ethos of the music, the majority of which was often made on 4 track machines in numerous bedrooms before being tested at Chicago’s No.1 House club, the Warehouse, where the legendary Frankie Knuckles ruled the decks. If the bedroom tape got the thumbs up from Frankie, then usually the aspiring producers would turn up at Trax the next morning and beg to get their productions on vinyl. The deals were probably not great but the lure of holding your own record seemed to override all other considerations. And thus dozens of new careers were hatched. Traxbox is the most important retrospective analysis of Trax Records since the label began. There have been many Trax related compilations in the past, but nothing that even remotely approaches the sheer scale and comprehensive sweep of Traxbox.

Traxbox presents the first 75 Trax Record 12” releases in their entirety – both the A & B sides including ALL the mixes used from Trax TX101 Le Noiz in 1985 to Trax TX175 Virgo Four in 1989 all housed in a beautiful heavyweight 16 x CD purpose-designed wallet together with an 80 page booklet all enshrouded within specially commissioned new artwork from cult artist Aidan Hughes.
All 75 12” releases have been extensively re-mastered and, in some cases, completely re-built in order to get all the original tracks to a decent degree of quality for the first time ever. Each individual 12” has been painstakingly re-mastered by experts, with all the original vinyl copies scrupulously supplied by renowned 12” collector and House music historian, Johnathan Woodliffe, for mastering comparison purposes and, in some cases, to supply the missing links in the Trax catalogue.

Bill Brewster – author of “Last Night A DJ Saved My Life” and co-founder of the world’s foremost DJ forum, DJ History has supplied a comprehensive history of the label and specific write-ups on each individual 12” all of which has been combined with lots of rare scans, photos and archive material from this incredibly influential era.
Forget everything else. Traxbox is the ONLY way to own this revolutionary period of dance music history.

Thing is, it's mainly not Acid in the TB-303 sense, but House all the way. I couldn't resist, anyway. My copy should arrive at the same time as the Deluxe Edition of Fairport Convention's Rising for the Moon, as both are released on 26 August. The following weekend should be most enjoyable!

You were weakening at 10am and by quarter to 3 you'd caved in and pressed BUY!

To be honest, I caved in before eleven. Is that more like what you were expecting?

We know. You spent all your coin on that David Forman album. So it must have been someone else.

Anything you're not telling us, Gotters?

Matt had a great voice, and Craig was one of the finest headless bassists ever.

Anyhow, I must have read the date on that Amazon email wrong, because my TraxBox was waiting for me at home!

Now that's what I call a Monday mood-lifter. Almost daren't open it yet, in case it stops me doing any work tonight.

Must...resist...

Blimey, I've always liked a bit of acid, but I've never heard of a single name on that ^

Gladders I hope you're Jacking to all this acid house, not just sitting there nodding your head. laugh

Like I said waaaaay back up there ^ somewhere, it's not all Acieed - a lot is pretty straight (and often vocal) House. But yes, I've been giving it big fish, little fish as I've grooved around the road network since the Acid Rain box first came out. That 5CD set is still the one I'd recommend, because the only thing wrong with it is the title - like I said, it's by no means wiggly fidgety acid all the way.

Still to come at home is the awful task of going through all my old House compilations to see which are now redundant, and which I can justify keeping because of sweet exclusive tracks.

I know that track but I had no idea who did it! I find it harder to remember the names of dance artists/producers for some reason, possibly because there's often no face to put with it.
