TRIPPIN’ ON ACID

I got my music junkie high today when I stumbled across Acid Invaders’ remix of Alt-J’s Breezeblocks.

I was wishfully looking up flights to Tomorrowland, and trying to figure out how long I would need to live off of top roman to go, when I realized they’re Belgian. Must be a sign right?!

Acid Invaders released their first techno house album last April. They have their own european digital feel that fuses dubstep influences with ravey synths to hardcore techno beat. According to their site, they incorporate sounds from detroit, wink, dahlback and many other producers into their unique acid soundscape. In 2012 they decided to tour with a true acid live act, injected with robotic voices, dark haunting melodies and strongly-built climaxes –  An abstract hypnotism and in-your-face techno that’s starting to detonate international dancefloors.

THE HOT CREATIONS CREW

I saw Jamie Jones for the first time at Sound in LA last weekend. His deep house tunes carried us through a very fun night, all the way to the end until the club closed at 4 AM (amazing considering everything closes at 2 AM here :/).

I looked him up, and discovered Hot Creations, which is the label (and party crew) helmed by Jones and Lee Foss. Hot Creations took 3 of the 7 spots on Pete Tong’s Essential New Tunes 2012, including ‘Benediction’, which made it into the UK Top 40.

If you’re anywhere near London on April 13 2013, a host of Hot Creations sanctioned artists will be at the legendary Brixton Academy, for a late night spectacular. Canadian pair Art Department have been confirmed for the date, and will be bringing their seasoned brand of tech house and electro. Hot Natured – the union of Jones, Lee Foss, Luca C and Ali Love – will be debuting their live show. Foss will DJ, as will Richy Ahmed, Infinity Ink and PBR Streetgang.
