Tin Man Vinyl, CD & tapes by Tin Man at Norman Records
You know what you're going to get with Johannes Auvinen, here once again in his Tin Man guise. Acid Acid Acid is an extension of his early LP 'Acid Acid' (see what they did there!) originally released in 2005 and now highly sought after, fetching upwards of £90 online. An extra 12" of unreleased tracks from that same timeline has been added to the package, making a total of 4 LPs. The remastering was left in the capable hands of Stefan Betke aka ~scape's Pole. Of course, Tinny brings the melancholy as well as the dance via the medium of strings, beats and '303s.
Tin Man sends out a super clear message with the track titles on this little 12”: ‘Love And Sex Acid’, ‘Falling Acid’ and ‘Let’s Do It Acid’. Basically this is all about the acidic 303 action, with rhythms that drive forwards with sensual encounters in mind. Great material, so great that this is already a repress. 12” on Keys Of Life.
From L.A. via Finland, Johannes Auvinen is now in his 14th year of making acid destroyers as Tin Man. This is music steeped in the historic influence of Chicagoan House, with a blueprint updated through a unique filter. Keys of Life Acid offers 3 tracks of nocturnally drifting 303s, bubbling journeys and dizzying grooves; one of which invites you to waltz. Repress 12" on Keys of Life.
Second team-up between John Tejada and Tin Man, featuring four tracks that muse upon the city of Vienna. Is this the first time the Austrian capital has been the subject of such sharp acid music? Possibly. Acid Test 12 was mixed down live, thus retaining the direct flavour of the tracks. 12” on Acid Test.
NYC techno producer Gunnar Haslam and Vienna-based Johannes Auvinen combine their unique talents for some searing psychedelic techno. Valere Aude is their debut as Romans, but their sound crams in decades of spacey synth drones, harsh handclaps and pulsing basslines. Available on double vinyl LP and CD.
Tin Man, Jozef K & Winter Son
Acid Test 11
3-way collaboration here between the Mancunian duo Jozef K, the 303 groove-dude Tin Man, and Winter’s Son. Acid Test 11 contains 2 new tracks of inventive, acid-derived sound-sweep, as well as a remix from Erika. It goes without saying that this will get crowds jacking, but touches of piano and other melodic aspects add a thoughtful feel as well. 12”.
Californian Vienna resident and acid techno artist Tin Man and Berlin based techno minimalists Cassegrains' new EP 'Window Window' is the first instalment of their latest collaborative work. All four tracks have been meticulously crafted with loving attention to detail to create cool modernist rhythms with classic synth lines that betray a collective nostalgia for soulful dance music.
