Classic 303 Acid Patterns (Part 1/3) (2016)
I've had this mix (and the two others) stored under my favourite ones, but never got the chance to sit down for it, and to listen to it fully. But today's the day: alone, WFH, and speakers on loud. And one of my favourite styles ever: Acid House. Remember Acid House? Remember the late 80s, early 90s? If you are old enough to remember, consider yourself lucky. I am sadly too young to remember Acid House (born in 1983). I would have been less than 10 years old, and I couldn't even string a sentence together, so for me to understand the power behind certain music styles, that was something far fetches, and beyond my reach.
But now I'm a tad older, and in awe of Acid House, and what it did for the dance scene in general. it was important, and gave us many new styles. Obviously Techno is another style highly important, and considered the originator, the first that spawned many new genres. But Acid House to me remains the most important, and the most powerful one. Or was Acid House first? You tell me?
This mix takes us back to the mid to late 80s. And the one who mixed it together, is the man who released songs under the name T99 and Quadrophonia, Recognise them? He used many other aliases over the years, but he's known as Olivier Abbeloos. And this mix is rather tasty, but it was to be expected, as the man has been in the music scene for many years, and has enough experience to know what the audience likes to hear. And these Acid House mixes are doing rather well on Soundcloud, so what he has done back in 2016 must have been great?
I love Acid House. It's just the best. And I'm not the only one.
If you by any chance have missed this mix, let me introduce you to the tracklist. It's a glorious one, trust me (and Olivier of course).

This took me a while to type, but whilst typing this, I got flashbacks. Not to the 80s, because I was too young, but to the late 90s, when I discovered Acid House. Still more than 22 years ago, if you think about it.
I wish I was 'old' enough to experience Acid House music and going out during the late 80s. So many positive vibes from people who lived through those glorious years. Some glorified it in a negative way, saying it was all about the drugs and nothing else, but that's not true. Yes, you have to be open minded to listen to this, but I'm sitting here, at home, sober, and I'm enjoying the music. No ounce of drugs in my system, besides paracetamol. But you can't get high on that... I think?
It was 2 hours long, but not long enough. Thankfully there are two more mixes available, but they have to be played on another day. Today I'm on volume 1, and it will be played over and over and over again until my ears bleed. And if that's the case, I do think I might need something to take the pain away, because that ain't normal.
All funny things aside, Olivier has done a remarkable job. His mix is really entertaining, without any errors. Pure and flawless, and full of classic anthems. My favo? 808 State's 'Let Yourself Go'.
I've got no negative feedback at all. If you want to relive the glorious Acid House days or want to be educated, let Olivier's mix be your guide.
