Crushing on the Acid Girls, DJ Riton & Congorock

17 07 2008

It’s weird.  We all have our specific super niche genres we are all obsessed with.  It’s the stuff you talk about with friends only to get reactions like – dude, that doesnt exist, or bro, you’re weird…well f dat – my super sub-genre in particular is straight walloping analog electro techno with 90’s style 303s and sirens and sweeps in the background.  Maybe old Space Girl mixed with Nostrum and a little Carl Cox.  I thought there was no way in hell I’d ever hear that old school combo ever produced again given the sophistication of today’s equipment…praying and searching……CUT TO ACID GIRLS!  Their first mixtape Sillynacht got me so hooked on this group I couldn’t wait to their next installment. 

And about 1 month ago, the perfect storm of electro techno was brought to my ears.  Enter Acid Girls, DJ Riton, & Congorock….These 3 artist groups have me banging my head against my keyboard daily with the freshness most forward electro out right now.  Forget fidget, disco and grime – if you just wanna go back to that 90s feeling of simple banging electronic music just check these groups out and be aurally satisfied.
