The latest release on Safety Zone Records sees the cleverly named (not…) Acid War dropping two tracks of what can only really be described as Acid Jungle. Does what it says on the tin then! The blurb on the EP claims that releases from Acid War are “rare as rocking horse poop” too, so fans of the genre may be pretty excitable.
For those of us not indoctrinated in the ways of Acid Jungle, you can expect rough breaks and those classic acid synths in abundance. There’s little (if any) of the polish associated with modern drum & bass but the release definitely has it’s charm, mainly due to the irresistible quality of those synth lines. Somehow the acid sound is never gonna lose its appeal.
I suspect this one will prove a bit marmite, so have a listen to the clips below and make up your own mind. You can grab the release for a whopping 50p from the Safety Zone bandcamp, out now.
