The next one to come on the relatively fresh Psychocandies-imprint is Acidfloors eight track album "Mondlandung" with all the track named "Mond" in numeric order from "Mond001" to "Mond008", keeping things plain and simple without coming up with a big concept. But those tracks weren't produced by Acidfloor if there wasn't one overall sound dominating the 40 minutes of playtime - the ever fresh sounding 303 and it's various clones, mostly raw and likely to be rarely processed on top of uptempo drumworks with a slightly distorted feel and partly accompanied with clattering percussions used to their very excess. Or high on speed as in the chased MonoAcid piece named "Mond004" that easily could've been taken from undiscovered archives of a label like Propulsion 285 or the thrilling AcidPhonk piece "Mond005" driving breakers mad with its twisted ElectroBreaks-attitude. This one hails from the very underground and will be loved by jocks regularly spinning at indepently organized and mostly illegal squatter parties far off the commercial nightlife industries. Nice.
