Acid Washed 'For Your Eye's Only' Review

Published On January 17, 2012 | By Andrew Rafter | Premieres

We’ve been following French duo Acid Washed for a while, signed to Record Makers, they have a new EP out from their forthcoming full length which pursues the same quest as their anthem ‘General Motors, Detroit, America’: ambitious & suave techno music, to be played loud in a club or to listen to on your couch.

The whole EP still draws heavily from Acid house and Techno, but they’ve finally managed to find their sound: it’s calm, cool and cleverly put together, we call it cinematic techno. It has equal parts of dark and light to create a complex, yet enthralling, tapestry of sounds that are perfect for end of the night or simple bedroom listening. Especially amazing is the ‘Prince Acid’ which after one listen we’ve been back to several times.

HBF Rating 4/5
