Win Acid House Anthems

Released on February 4th to mark the 25th anniversary of the birth of acid house, Acid House Anthems is a 3 CD compilation featuring classics, early influential tracks and Balearic beats. Acid house was the UK's most influential youth culture phenomenon since punk. A collision between man, technology and chemistry, the 'second summer of love' has left an indelible mark upon music, society, fashion, art and beyond.

Though Britain provided the right environment, acid house took its musical cues from America's, and particularly Chicago's, emerging house music scenes with tracks such as DJ Pierre aka Phuture's "Acid Trax" release, the seminal recording that welded the squelching (misused) bass sound of the Roland 303 synthesizer to a house beat. The track, and others like it, blew up in Chicago at the legendary Music Box house club before making waves with DJ Alfredo at Amnesia in Ibiza as well as finding fame in the record stores and house clubs of London and Manchester.

What happened next has been written into music folklore; following trips to Ibiza in 1987, a loose collective of newly enlightened British youths decided to transport the Ibiza-style acid house soundtrack and 'ecstatic' vibe back to the UK, launching parties and clubs including Shoom, Future, Spectrum, RiP Clink Street, and The Trip in London, and 'Hot' & 'Nude' at The Hacienda in Manchester, as well as the 'orbital' raves such as Apocalypse Now, Sunrise, and Energy.

Across 3 CDs, Acid House Anthems captures the essence of this era. Classic US house, acid and early techno tracks from the likes of Frankie Knuckles, Marshall Jefferson (Ten City) rub shoulders with Balearic anthems with remixes from Paul Oakenfold and Andy Weatherall of Happy Mondays, Primal Scream and St Etienne, plus classics from 808 State, Bass-O-Matic (William Orbit), The Beloved, and Electribe 101, and huge crossover records from Coldcut, Alison Limerick, Farley "Jackmaster" Funk, Ce Ce Rogers, Bomb The Bass, D-Mob, Jungle Brothers and Guru Josh.
