Rhythm Magnet is the debut release by the all-purpose sonic LSD vehicle Acid Jeep, broadcasting high grade machine-made acid worldwide from the scorching metropolis of Houston, Texas.
This squelchy warehouse material is characterised by chunky acid grooves and hypnotic lead lines, moving through 7 tracks of pounding hyper-dynamic rhythms and curling bleeps’n’bass made using an array of hardware. Despite utilising a sound palette that will be familiar to most ravers and braindancers, Acid Jeep is able to take dancefloors to previously unknown destinations with his fresh take on a style that, whilst pulling influences rooted in Detroit, has been more euro-centric over the years.
The kinda quality you can assume from an RWD release - complex melodies, just-enough layering to build into a well crafted mish-mash of impeccable interjoining parts. Recently a friend asked for a list of everything I've been listening to recently - 9/10 of the albums/EPs were by this guy. Absolutely crackin' stuff! dharkoshan
The machine can come. Machine come machine come.
This album's sonic pallet clashes in all the right ways. It's somewhat jarring at first, but the intricate steel guitar work and the delicate breaks (hold on, did i get those two adjectives mixed up?) all become one sum - making this album's shtick an interesting aural expansion to Aaron Funk's discography.
