People And Places 002 - Posthuman (2018)
Today I've been in mellow mood. Don't ask me why, but I was. And not for one second did I hesitate to search for anything else than Acid music. I just had this craving for Acid House music. And the first thing which appeared in my list was a mix done by Posthuman. That name does ring a bell. Seen their name before, and I think I had reviewed one of their mixes before. But can't remember when it was. Anyway, I was happy to find this Acid mix.
And don't think it's the old type of Acid music. It's brand spanking new music, obviously with its roots in the late 80s, but still brand spanking new. A fresh take on Acid music. And for this mix they went all out: an hour long mix, containing records I have not heard before. The names do not even ring a bell. Is that bad? Well, as a music lover and reviewer/blogger I should know my music, but sadly this isn't a style I would listen to every day. But I will from now.

This mixtape they've made for People and Places is an hour full of happiness. There's no denying in the fact that House music/Acid House has opened doors for us. Without it developping into such an amazing sound, EDM would not have been big at all. Hell, it might not have existed!
On Soundcloud (and of course Discogs and other social media pages) you can find a lot of information about Posthuman and where they play, etc. That's not my job. I'm here to talk about this mix, and I have to tell you: it's a beast. It's a monster. It's a mysterious creature holding you, embracing you, and never letting you go. This mix is so powerful: the hour will fly by and you won't even know it!
Normally I would point out the best records and mistakes, but I can't: there aren't any mistakes, and all the records are immensely great. There's nothing wrong with this mix. And that's unbelievable, isn't it? It's so weird to write it down. Every mix has got at least one thing wrong, this one hasn't. An hour of pure Acid heaven.
Listen to this mix right now. Close your eyes for a second, and be back in the late 80s.
