LO’99 unveils new house heater ‘Acid Worldwide’
Following remixes for PNAU, Stace Cadet & KLP, and working collabs with Dr Fresch & Taiki Nulight, LO’99 returns to Medium Rare with an acid house tinged badboi of a single. ‘Acid Worldwide’ gradually builds with precise automation and hooky chant, as synth work resonates straight down the middle to a solid acid bass-line. Breaking down into a chorus of city shout outs LO dials the oscillators up to 11 and delivers the tagline… “don’t drop bombs, drop acid”.
Speaking on how the record came together LO shares, “I’m stoked how this one’s turned out! A nod to my love for acid house and old school rave vibes while keeping true to my current sound. Hope you guys dig it as much as I had fun making it!”
Reminiscing about his first taste of acid house, LO’99 further shares “I’ve been a big fan of acid house and all things 303 sound for a while now. I remember being in Helsinki at 18 years old, my dad had just moved there, and I randomly went to a Hardfloor show that my friend was putting on. It was my first real intro to acid house or well 303 sounds, apart from unknowingly maybe hearing them being used in Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, Prodigy, or maybe some random Hardcore songs as a young raver. At the show I saw all these people holding their 303 machines up, dancing with them in the air. Then after the show all these people lined up to get them signed by Hardfloor and I was so intrigued… I think after this I was like I want to know more and read up about the origins of acid house and what it was, got my head properly around the 303 and what it sounded like. Unfortunately, I don’t have a proper original 303 but I do have one of those sick new Roland Boutique TB-03’s and many plugin’s that replicate the vibe and a lot of acid house records!!!”
LO’99 is renowned for his own brand of house music, his productions often delivering a distinctly techy sound and unique bass-line. Dance music’s elite are getting behind his vision. With LO being called upon to remix the greats like Fatboy Slim, Röyksopp, Kaskade, Moby and even more recent artists like Crooked Colours, Peking Duk & Alunageorge.
