[SFR009] Acid Lab - The Future Past E.P. [Limited Edition 12" Vinyl & Digital Available To Buy Now!!!]

A1 - Future Past.
A2 - Lavender.
B1- Blue Fields.
B2 - Voyager.

For anyone with even the most fleeting knowledge of deep and atmospheric drum and bass, the name Acid Lab comes immediately to mind when labelling trailblazing producers. For his Silent Force Recordings label debut, Acid Lab takes us back to the golden age of late nineties D&B with the release of 'The Future Past E.P.' on digital and limited edition 12" vinyl formats.

We are first greeted with 'Future Past' which eases you in with it's emotive, sweeping strings and filtered breaks before descending into a morass of dense and dark atmospherics accented by twisting mentasm stabs and ominous bass drones. 

'Lavender' up next takes us on a more soothing path by interweaving lush pad washes, soaring female vocals and crisp, stepping breaks accompanied by a warm enveloping bassline, which instantly evokes memories of '96-'97, intelligent drum & bass classics.

The flipside sees 'Blue Fields' deliver some serious breakbeat pressure with it's use of layered Apache and amen breaks, coupled with an alternating backdrop of Detroit techno smoothness, industrial tech-step harshness.

Bringing the EP to a thundering conclusion we have 'Voyager', an ode to the glory days of deep, dark and moody hard-step, propelled by a series of relentless, "Panther" breaks and growling bass notes to set the ton, accompanied by lethal hoover flashes pierce the darkness.

If the heady sounds of vintage, Blue Note era drum & bass tick your musical boxes then Acid Lab's latest collection will prove to become a mainstay in your musical armoury for months to come. An essential release!!!
