Disco Nihilist - Running (Far Away)
Label: Running Back
Mike Taylor aka Disco Nihilist , is an American producer that has been putting out tracks since 2009. Even though he is new to the scene, Mike has a very old school sound that tributes back to the early 90's/late 80 era of house (particularly acid-house) music. He uses classic analogue gear to make his music. If you weren't around in those times, then his music can take you on a journey back to how electronic music used to be made. If you like the legendary Trax Recordings type of acid-house sound, you will love this release. All good, but try: 2,3,4

1) Classic old-school deep house, very Chicago feel, simple piano-synth loop
2) Retro-acid-house - a faithful re-creation of the legendary type of dirty electronica from labels like Trax
3) Pounding acid-house, again, very analog with slammin' beat & twisted warbling
4) Whoa! Brain-grinding acid here, with a thumpin' beat
5) Dub house - analog keyboards echoing & panning back & forth
6) More retro acid-house - a little bit on the early electro tip - recalls "Dance Mania"
