Dutch imprint 030303 and revered British acid producer Chris Moss Acid seem almost perfect for each other. The label have sporadically released music from Ceephax Acid Crew and D'Arcangelo in their brief life to date, whilst Moss has being dealing in a particularly unhinged treatment of acid techno for Mathematics and the Boxfade label for some time. Anyone familiar with his oeuvre will be prepared for what Bay of Cadiz has to offer, with this EP dominated by the title track. At just over 11 minutes "Bay Of Cadiz" has the time and space to slow grow into the sort of hypnotic acid behemoth that makes it all too easy to understand why Jamal Moss was eager to put out his namesake's debut EP back in 2007. Check the (digital) flip for some less subtle acid action, with "Lynchett Matravers" a particularly extraterrestrial effort.
The fifth release from Dutch acid junkies 030303 sees the debut of mystery producer Fah, and gets off to a superlative start with "Fine Space" which is a tripped-out electro excursion that uses subtle hints of the 303, whilst melancholic female vocals are taken apart by dripping effects. Fah ups the tempo with "Bonus Orbits" and the results fall somewhere between Legowelt and Aphex Twin on a happy day, whilst "Sixears" demonstrates this unknown quantity's talent for dabbling in smudgey textures. The title track "Galaxy Dust" opens the flip, focusing on a more broken rhythmic approach which allows the space for sharp claps and hi-hats to fire frantically between menacing rave sounds and sci-fi melodies. The tempo shifts again on the final track "Sad Acid" where Fah creates a beautifully slow, chugging groove with hints of hip hop influence that forms the backdrop to a fine arrangement of warm acidic chords and beats.
