Best Acid mix on the Internet?

VFT Acid House mix 1988 - 2013

VFT Acid House mix - re-uploaded for the masses

Whilst surfing the net the other evening I stumbled upon a number of what were supposed to be Acid House mixes.

I was quite disappointed that none of the mixes I listened to were true 100% Acid House but a mix of Acid and other old school tunes, which is fine if you like that sort of thing.

But to label such mixes as 'Acid House' was a little misleading I feel.

One of these mixes was even being hailed as the best Acid House set on the Internet.

So I figured if that mix really was the best there is then I'd better re-upload the mix I did a couple of years back.

Presenting almost 2 hours of non-stop Acid House with no fillers and nothing less than 100% TB 303 driven Acid bangers from the years 1988 - 2013.
Featuring the best of US & UK Artists, celebrating 25 years of Acid.

VFT - catering for the Acid connoisseur's since 1989.

Casey Tucker - Equinox 1996

Casey Tucker - Equinox (preview)

One more track from the archives as we journey back to 1996.

This track is actually the forerunner to the popular 'BST' track that was released last year on the For Those That Knoe label (vinyl only).

This track was recorded around the time of spring equinox of 1996 (March). BST was the follow-up track that came a few weeks later.

So to commemorate that little fact (and in response to the requests for a digital release of BST) it has been decided to release both Equinox and BST together as a special edition double download pack.

Out now at the Digital Store.
