Review

It’s been 2 years since Benny Rodrigues’ last release on Be As One and since then, the young Dutch producer has pushed forward his career, both in the studio and in the dj booth. Having remixed people like Josh Wink, DJ Pierre, Justice, Spirit Catcher to name just some and released on Ovum, Poker Flat, Figure, Klockworks, with a busy dj schedule in clubs as Berghain or Rex, at his young age Benny is clearly a well respected artist. Benny Rodrigues’ interpretation of acid house takes the form of “I Like Acid", and surely it sounds classic! Acid synth madness like in the old days but with an updated touch to rock the floors in 2011. “Choice” hypnotic appeal will not get unnoticed on the floor, once again a track that finds its strenght in the basic structure of its arrangement, effective drums patterns with a “freakish” top line that carry the track into peak time. Steve Rachmad remixes as “Sterac” are always a treat, and here the Techno legend doesn’t fail to impress once again with his take on Benny’s “I Like Acid". Snares, hi-hats, rides and bass, all arranged to build up to a melodic and emotional breakthru, dancefloor bliss for the Detroit techno heads. To close this amazing package, Germany’s own Mike Dehnert brings his trademark sound to be as one in the form of his remix of I Like Acid. A tune that finds its perfect habitat in dark, smokey and sweaty rooms with massive sound systems.

De:Bug Review: “Albern, heiter, flink und mit Acidlines, die irgendwie sehr viel Shuffle haben, kickt der Titeltrack so los, wie man es erwarten würde. Im Schneegestöber offener Hihats und mit einer sehr konzentrierten Bassline, die sich langsam im Raum immer breiter macht, erinnert der Track an die Chicago-Klassiker und hat dabei hörbar Spaß. “Choices”, mit seiner übermächtigen Bassdrum und dem digitaleren Sound, flirrt einer Neuinterpretation des Acidsounds in konsequentem Minimalismus hinterher, und genau das macht eigentlich noch viel mehr Sinn. Sehr technoid. Und dann kommen die Remixe von Dehnert, im puren zerstört-wuchtigen Abstraktionssound und Sterac mit gewölbtem Splitteracid. Fein. ”

Karotte (CocoonGreat Stuff): “sterac rmx is the one for me.”

Mathias Kaden (Freude am Tanze: “i love it!!!!!thanksssss”
