Mid Week Special…. Old Skool Acid House
Well the good news is I have finally got all of my records back home from storage so I can start digging through again to share some musical love with you all of the old skool variaty.
First up we have The MacKenzie – Chicago Trip, an underground warehouse tune produced in 1990 on MacKenzie records Belgium. In a way it is a rip off of Lil Louis French Kiss, but does it very well and gives the tune a real edge to it. Then in true house style some sneaky Italians called Alpha DY rip of The Mackenzie by releasing Chicago Trip under their name and adding only a few minor changes if I remeber rightly. Only a couple of years ago the Alpha DY tune was fetching silly money, just because it had a red stamp on it.

Next up we have some great UK Acid House by This Ain’t Chicago, with a track called Ride The Rhythm, production credits go to Dizzie Dee who alo produced the classic Tainted Love by Impedance and also was involved with chart topping Candy Flip.

From the excellent US label Nu Groove we have Underground Kids – Get up, I remeber buying this in 1993 from a Second hand record shop (that will remain nameless, as I still go digging there) although the track was released in 1989, I had only just fully immersed myself into house music after collecting mainly hardcore and techno tunes up until then. I used to play it regulary and people would always ask what it was, probably because it sounded so different to the house music that was being churned out in 93. Still a firm favourite of mine from the Nu Groove camp.

Lastly we a have little known Acid tune from 1988 from the UK that was released on small lable called Move n Groove. Do not really know much about the artist other the info on Discogs, but really like the raw energy and simplicity of this one.
Zoo – Extasy
Enjoy…..and remeber, if you take your time to download the music…maybe take some time to comment…it’s easy to do and is always good to hear other peoples views.
