Type-303 – UglyTruth (ZEIT009)
Type-303 delivers a 4-track homage to 90’s rave and acid on Zeitnot 09.
Upfront and unreservedly ‘The E-Street‘ captures the soul of eccied warehouse club culture with a thunderous, addictive chord melody from the word go. Belly-deep, sweltering bass made for sweaty body masses. ‘Sfääri’ takes a serene, almost dream house turn, side-chained lo-fi pads and twisting, turning acid bass.
Flip the plate for more gutteral, darker acid techno – like the head-rattling ‘UglyTruth’. Disturbing broken-machine sounding hook looms over bubbling accented acid squelch, while the 303 abuse continues on ‘Uprising’; an eerie vocal sample reminiscent of classic Chicago jack tracks, with driving hi-hats and a psychedelic sliding acid line.
