EXPAND YOUR (MUSICAL) MIND: Classic Acid House Track No. 1


In an attempt to further blow the collective Nitetrotter "mind," I've decided to expose you all to some new music. It's not the everyday mindless Bitchpork/Daytrotter indie-cred hipster nonsense. No, this music is the melding of creative minds with integrated circuits, potentiometers, TB-303s, and vinyl.

Today's selected track is Phuture's "Acid Trax," one of the most seminal acid house tracks to ever be unleashed on the world. Phuture, which was an acid house production team in the 1980s, kept the Chicago house machine rolling by creating an entirely new and fresh sound that, while still house, was something new all the same.

Expand your music mind. Stop listening to the same thing over and over and over again. Listen to the past and future of Illinois.
