Perhaps it’s not enough to say the forward-thinking bass music heavyweights have merely brought it back – rather they’ve taken the reigns on the frenetic, psychedelic-infused genre and made it uniquely their own.
Picking right up where they left off with their 2017 collaborative EP, Acid Disk 2 is seemingly everything all at once – swapping between trap, spirited drum & bass, and punchy acid house in rapid succession.

Despite describing the premise for the EP in its very title, this collection of songs is anything but predictable. From the opening psytrance-like breakdown of “On My Mind” to the 16th note, 8-bit style synth work in the closer, “Final Lap,” it’s an EP so dense, you’ll find yourself hitting replay just to keep up with its moment-to-moment evolutionary shifts.
