“Acid.” Will Eastman‘s rave-ready stomper “Sugar,” out today on Nurvous, digs into early 90’s warehouse culture when acid house was king. The track, which plays out like a Dirtybird single after taking shots of JÃ¤ger to the face, is the kind of floor filler that’s constructed to get bodies in a mood from the waist down and, in many ways, feels like an extension of Eastman’s work as Pentamon or his remix of “Imitation Air” from last year.
Combined with a low end heavy enough to sink ships or dancing shoes into concrete, “Sugar” intertwines anthemic qualities, such as crescendos you’d expect from a big room track, with a respect for the acid house formula allowing the track to breathe and flow in a manner that makes it sound epic, but not overly digital. The only way this track could sound any more legitimate is if it was pressed on a 12″ so you could hear the cracks and warmth associated with 90’s warehouse vinyl sets (and knowing Will, we’re sure the thought had crossed his mind).
“Sugar” is large, in charge, and crazy. Stream it below and you can pick it up on Beatport via Nurvous Records today.
