It's been a long time since that cold xmas' eve of 3-years-ago when we released our very first output, a super colored and flamboyant DIY-printed CD with plenty of lo-fi house in it.
Well, to celebrate this 3rd anniversary we decided to get serious.
New logo, new sound, and finally ON VINYL: 12", 150 copies, limited edition. Two sides of raw acidic jams by 5 of our favorite artists.
A Side starts with Auto Sound City's "Night Time in '88", a proper, sincere raw old school acid house track coming from the incredible set of vintage gear of the Manchester/Leeds duo. At Dusky Adriatic we are all big fans of them and of their label "Weapons Of Desire", go check 'em out!
A2 is "30 Years Late" by our multiform boss Nicolò definitely leaving behind his nnls moniker. 808 patterns with PLEEENTY of cowbell, congas and claps plus a simple acid line that will drive you nuts.
On the B side, first track is "Electro" by the greek artist Drum Machine coming back to Dusky Adriatic with this ultra dry, mental heavy electro jam full of killer stabs. You better watch out for those hihats.
B2 is "707 vs 909" by Raw Culture boss Asymmetrical, slow, heavy saturated drums, a screaming acid bassline, hypnotic pads, this is what we call LENTO VIOLENTO.
Finally B3 is a track made by Dj Octopus, well known for his releases on Chiwax, Hot Haus, Shall Not Fade and his own imprint Metal Position. He joins Dusky Adriatic with "Dry Shipping", an electro/break track perfect to warm up the dancefloor: dreamy synths with a slightly dark harmonic progression, compact but still kinda gentle drum rhythms and a tight bassline.
