Review: Five years on from the release of his brilliant debut 'Watched By The Experts" album on Apartment Records, VernoN finally returns to action. While that acclaimed set explored a sleazy mix of techno, EBM and new beat, this belated follow-up features a quartet of tracks wrapped in the distinctively wild and undulating sounds of Roland's legendary TB-303 bass synthesizer. There are a couple of suitably forthright, acid house style "jack tracks" - see the superb "Assault" and the snappy alien funk of "Riot" - alongside a bustling, breakbeat-driven acid shuffler ["Don't Be a Slave (Consumerism Mix)]", with its bounding waves of wild electronics and whispered vocal samples) and a surging acid-electro workout that's so psychedelic it could probably induce hallucinations in even the most sober of listeners (standout "Scuffle").
Review: Sometime I Love Acid, Furthur Electronix and Super Rhythm Trax artist Jared Wilson pops up on Undersound Recordings with an EP that's as ear pleasing as it is dancefloor friendly. Check first the picturesque melodies, dreamy chords, stargazing electronics and subtle acid flashes of four-to-the-floor jam "Always Something Else", before turning your attention to the intergalactic acid electro brilliance of EP standout "Roland Acid Again". The producer's renowned love of mind-altering TB-303 motifs once again comes to the floor on clanking but melodic flipside opener "PeanutButter Halloween (Salt Mix)", while closing cut "Nov27" is a razor sharp slab of Chicago style acid jack laden with suitably alien electronics.
