Visceral Now "In the Realm of the Unreal" (2007)




This a demo of some "old school" Acid House created, unlike the previous two albums I have posted, purely on synths, the main synth in question being a TB303 clone.

Whereas the Heavy Horn Action and Midnite Classix albums were exercises in sampling and creating sound collages this album is all about pure tune writing (no samples here) and nostalgia for one of my favourite forms of music, Acid House. Which is surely about due for a revival any time now!

In keeping with the retro theme I've kept the music deliberately sparse, many of my favourite tunes from the late 80's/early 90's were made using a couple of synths, a drum machine and some effects, so that's the kind of sound I was aiming for here.

"Dance" music this isn't though, although you could probably freak out to a few of the tracks. This is Acid House done like it should be, deep and trippy.
