Belfast is marching to a different beat these days. Well, better off not mention marching but the central city of Northern Ireland is definitely dancing to something new. A string of homegrown talent and local labels has breathed new life into the once bare wastelands of electronic music in the capital. Computer Controlled is part of that new breed of imprints. The label on the Larne enjoyed wide ranging praise for their first EP by Liverpool’s Mark Forshaw. England is the stomping ground for the second, just heading a bit further south to Bournemouth and a man with a penchant for the TB303.
Now Mr Moss Acid may be known for the latter part of his name, but the iconic sound of little silver box is barely present in the concertinaed strangeness of “Spatial Dimensions.” Shimmering synths pour, toms and beats raining in a caustic cacophony. “The Shamen” follows. No, “Ebeneezer Goode” is nowhere in sight; perhaps he’s been cracked one in the face by the assault of bass and beats that pummel. Skewed squawk is thumped with a ceremonial rhythm stick as all blurs into a rabid trance of spirals and sweat. “What Size Is Your Jack” sees Ed Upton, aka DMX Krew, drafted in. The result is a squirming electro romp, foaming claps bubbling against the hoarse howls of 303. “Righteous Acid Beat” is a pair knuckles belting noses affair. Pads are left limp as drum machines are left dizzy, a storm of snares and a hail of hi-hats punishing speakers before thick bass lines mutate the mood.“Getchu” is a blackened end. Steady and useful, vocals loop as serpentine coils of 303 contract. By now any listener should have realised the intent, a final swallow to pull you into the rancid belly of this acid loving beast.

A great collection of modern acid tracks that dance along the fine line between "shut your eyes mind music" and straight up dance floor weapons. This stands out from the crowd. Nice work 👌 TalibFunkWiseBest
