For their first full-length in eight years the ever-reliable Posthuman pair freshen up their hard-hitting acid sound with a little injection of story. Spawned from the Balkan Vinyl EP series of the same name, Mutant City Acid is a sonic imagining of one of those Bladerunner-style cyberpunk future-cities. The retro artwork and concept match up with the duo’s where-were-u-in-’92? club sound.
The usual no-BS fare from Balkan Vinyl here. Label bosses Posthuman break out the 303s and the 909s and set to work making some party-starting techno jams. Both the original and ‘Acid’ versions of title cut ‘Wake Up’ are jacked to the high heavens. ‘Jet Set’ does a similar thing using little more than a drum machine and a short vocal loop. Closer ‘Usurpate Acid’ ups the tempo to 160 bpm in order to create a nice acid-juke vibe.
Posthuman, or cousins Richard Bevan and Joshua Doherty are acid veterans and have been active since the late ‘90s and over the last decade or so heading up an acid revival with their label I Love Acid. They also love the Roland TB303 which has inspired them to keep acid alive. The Damocles Syndicate is two sides of reckless and debauched techno that could only come from the minds of these two. 12” on Shiprec.
Turn of the millennium acid veterans, known for their parties in a forgotten London tube station, return with a four track EP on Chiwax. Alongside the likes of Randomer, and Jeremy Corbyn, they're helping usher in a new age of British acid. Dust off your 303s and put on your yellowest t-shirt, it's time for a rave.
Understated acid need never leave us, a sentiment expressed through this Posthuman repress. Originally released in a run of 303 (of course), it has that Paranoid London sound, with a distinct nod to Chicago anthems of the late 80s and early 90s. Altern8's Mark Archer provides a remix that pushes the acid taste further.
To celebrate their fifth year in production Dixon Avenue Basement Jams have offered up some of their rawest cuts yet. I Love Acid hell-raiser Posthuman burns through three rave workouts in quick succession. While the two Josh Caffe collaborations fuse the singer’s silky croon with pounding acid grooves, closer ‘Exit Drums’ is a slice of mutant electro not a million miles from Blawan.
There's nothing quite like acid. No, not the stuff that melts the shit out of your skin - the sort of deep, squelching house bangers that make you want to throw your limbs around as if you were getting coated with a barrel-load of the burny stuff. I Love Acid Thirteen is for the lovers of the aforementioned - Posthuman have a knack for crystal clear production and insurgent beats.
Release the tenth from I Love Acid. Four hot-and-heavy dancing tracks from experienced acidic producers DJ Pierre, Luke Vibert, Hardfloor and Posthuman, none of them wasting any time cutting to the squelchy chase. Pressed to 180g vinyl in an hand-numbered edition of (oh yes) 808 copies! On Balkan Vinyl.
It’s A House Thing, declares the title of this EP from Posthuman, the bosses of the Balkan Vinyl label on which it is released. It certainly is ‘A House Thing’ with these four tracks, which bounce along on a classic house rhythm. Vivid lashings of acid too, very welcome. Includes a remix of the title track from Mark Archer.

Mutant City Acid
A pulse-racer with four tracks across two sides, Mutant City Acid is a fine introduction to the Balkan Vinyl label. With 303’s galore it’s packed with analogue acid, with Mark Archer and Ben Pest flexing their funky bones, whilst the slow techno of Posthuman and uptempo sampling of Chevron provide a varied finish to the flip side. Out on 12” vinyl from Balkan Vinyl.
