FOA014 - THIS IS COCAINE
great pleasure that we welcome Emmanuel Top on Filth on Acid with his new
single. The legendary Emmanuel Top managed to produce tracks in the 90s like
'Acid Phase' and 'Turkish Bazar' that are still being heavily played today. As
a symbol of the old school 303 sound, it is very special that in 2017 he brings
us filth, on acid yet again.
Cocaine' emerges stripped back and hypnotising, while at the same time it
manages to keep the attention over the full play time. The arrangement is build
around 5 bars instead of 4, which contrasts with most tracks out there and
gives a big element of surprise. The track alternates between two main acid
lines, one deep and square providing the bass, the other one resonant and
extremely aggressive, cutting like a knife from mid to tweeter. The classic
vocal, 'this is cocaine speaking' gets brought in and out in a powerful way,
while the whole composition pulsates forward steadily with a severe distorted
909 kick drum.
