Duo John Tejada and Justin Maxwell team up for the latest release out on Acid Camp Records (ACR), an EP entitled “I‘ve Got Acid (On MyBrain)” that came out today on both 12″ and digital formats.
As title suggests, the three-tracker (plus acapella of the title track) contains acid throughout. The opening track, “I’ve Got Acid (On My Brain)” is a mind-bending wavetable freakout, the likes of which Tejada and Maxwell have been striving to do for years. Using a vintage EMS vocoder to create an original vocal sample, this track is bright, playful, and vivacious.
Next up is “The Name Rolls In,” which is layered in an acid playground of sounds. A rhythmic track with a potent 303 bass line, prominent percussion, and that infamous vocoder back at it to create a distinctly groovy track.
Rounding up the release is “Field Notes,” a composition of celestial arrangements that is completely devoid of beats but is instead carried through by tiers of sounds, filters, and noisier elements, lulling the listener into an alluring sonic dreamscape.
