Imagine if a long lost South American tribe made trance music. Well that's kinda the vibe here on the latest from the ever effervescent Man Recordings. "High On Cuica" is a throbbing late night jungle ritual with extra lasers-in-the-air euphoric melodies throw in for extra kicks. Remix-wise, we get a pounding Andean avalanche of drums and hysteria courtesy of Milangeles, creeped-out tropical trap from Maia Nucha, ghetto psychosis from Happy Colors and some slick hip-hop from Pesadao Tropical.
Chicago staple Still Music is back in action with this highly sought after gem of obscure acid house from the original era of the sound. Tragically James 'Jack Rabbit' Martin passed away in 1990 which left his career just a few releases deep, and the Acid mix of "Only Wanted To Be" remains one of his most distinctive tracks. It's a slow and fevered cut rich in the lo-fi nastiness of the time, with distorted vocals that add to the overall freakiness of the jam. "Rabbit Trax I (The Next Generation)" is a tougher cut that ramps up the squelch to a great, paranoid end result.
