UTTU helpfully describe this release from Boysnoize affiliates Shadow Dancer as "dungeon acid". It's an apt description. Ooozing with energy, it sounds like the revivalist rave fare recently offered up by the excellent R-Zone imprint. "Hydrate" darts around impressively, all chopped up vocals, darkroom samples, colossal builds and rave-era stavs. Photonz handle remix duties, turning the in-your-face original into an intense chunk of nightmarish acid techno that seems to be the product of a particularly freakish trip. That's a good thing, mind. Bonus cut "Matta", on the other hand, offers the sort of classic 303 thrills last heard emerging from the studios of Phuture and Virgo Four at the tail end of the 1980s.
