Pacific State is a new project from French producer Lifelike and British producer Neil Curtis and is described as “a vehicle for them to explore their fascination and love of late 80s, early 90s acid house and techno.”
Featuring classic stabs, snares and kicks all recorded on £200 worth of vintage synthesisers and sequenced on an old Atari ST — this is dance music with an eye on the past and is being released on the duo’s new imprint House Science.
Inspired and influenced by legends like Mike Pickering, Graeme Park, the KLF and L.F.O. the duo has more than one foot at the Hacienda, virtually of course.
We’ve got the first play of Neil Curtis’ remix of ‘1990’ who flips the original into a cut of analogue techno which glides along on a bed of vintage drums and modulating stabs.
Check out Curtis’ lowkey remix and the rather fetching original below.
