SONG OF THE DAY: Sidney Samson & Killfake – “Revenge of the Acid”
Dirty dutchman Sidney Samson seems to be on a roll (no pun intended). Following up last month’s monstrous “YLB,” he teams up with rising duo Killfake for the multi-genrebanging “Revenge of the Acid.” Listening to the track the first time, the flow is kind of unpredictable. The build from each drop is a bit unexpected. At one point, I was expecting it to go all Azzido Da Bass “Doom’s Night” or Joy Kitikonti “Joy Energizer,” and the vocal bit or harsh noise effect surprises me (as it would the crowd going mental on the dancefloor). While the track is in the ’90s revival milieu, the deployment of acid keys channels both acid house and retro techno with a unique flavor that makes it stand out from the plethora of tracks currently out there. I realize this, because after putting it in Notable Dance Podcast 028 last week, the amount of reaction eMails have hit a near record level. DJs should jump on this track now, and y’all can expect to hear this in club sets throughout the fall.
