This first record in a series of 12s is a cracker. Most of this, long and therefore very good value for money, single is dark electro acid which has so many great things goin on. At the moment the first track on the b-side is the one for me; the beats are somewhere inbetween old school techno and someone like Ceephax Acid Crew, who Im sure the Twin has had a massive influence on. The punchy rhythms bring back ecstatic memories of being too fucked to dance at ATP, but trying and eventually doing some sort of strange on-the-spot robot-dancing that came out of nowhere. If the rest of the 12s are going to be anything like this then this series looks like its going to be fucking classic!
