I may be slacking on tune posts lately, but when I do post them I mean business… this tune is a personal favorite discovery of mine from recent time: totally underappreciated / unknown 91-92 style bleepy acidy breakbeat stuff. What makes this tune for me is the combination of aforementioned sounds with sinister pads, weird noises and creeping strings: I’m always a sucker for dark tracks like this. Absolutely no clue on who Ross Pehenallas is, I’ve never seen this tune in any mixes etc (though I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s an unknown ID request *somewhere*), no other releases from the artist or label. The other tracks are all pretty solid acid-y hardcore if I remember right, nothing too extreme and all a bit more 91 tempo, but good stuff. Perhaps that’s the issue, as this is dated in discogs as being released in 93. If it had been released then, it might have been a bit tougher to fit with other tunes. But regardless of that, this tune… wow. All glorious snaps crackles and pops left in as there’s NO reason not to nab it since it’s ridiculously cheap and easy to find. Frankly, I’ll be a little bit insulted if I check Discogs marketplace in a few days and don’t see at least one or two of these sub-2£ copies gone.
