Jaydee - Acid Pressure EP
Doorly’s Reptile Dysfunction continues to prove itself one of the most vibrant and singular labels around, this time tapping up legendary producer Jaydee for its latest release.
Jaydee is a dance music pioneer. Best know for the seminal ‘Plastic Dreams’ – a track that, somewhat terrifyingly for those who remember it the first time around, will be celebrating its 25th anniversary next year – he has continued to be a leading light in innovative house and techno productions, releasing on R&S and Ellum Audio in the last few years.
Here, he teams up with fellow dance music visionary Doorly for a searingly brilliant release on the latter’s Reptile Dysfunction imprint.
‘Acid Pressure EP’ presents two original cuts from Jaydee, with supporting remixed from Doorly and Trooko. Kicking things off, ‘Back Into Acid’ opens with stunningly heartfelt pads before building to a killer acid line via shimmering percussion and erotically charged vocal snatches. ‘Bring The Pressure’ is more direct: a house roller softened by Basic Channel-esque chords and with added rhythm courtesy of the accompanying ragga chants.
‘Back Into Acid’ has already received the seal of approval from man of the moment Kolsch, who has championed on his Radio 1 show and also included it on his covermount mix for Mixmag’s Ibiza issue. On the remix front, Doorly flips ‘Back Into Acid’ into something far more menacing, with fierce synths stabs and rolling drums creating a head down stomper, while Trooko chops ‘Back Into Pressure’ into pieces, crafting a thumping main room house cut from the constituent parts, complete with an epic, piano-led breakdown.
