The latest missive from Acid Test has the label identifying with its hometown, Los Angeles, more than ever. LA-born Vienna resident and label mainstay Tin Man takes Vienna-born Angeleno resident John Tejada along for a four-track journey which dwells on the activity which defines life in the City of Angels, driving. Opener "Swiftbox" is a perfect amalgam of Auvinen and Tejada's respective styles— Tremulous 303 and complex minor key melodicism and deconstructed stabs. "Diamond Lanes" is another muscular acid cut with a subtle, swinging percussion. The Diamond Lanes in question can be used when you have a passenger in the car. When widescreen pads come in over jacking snares, you can picture the duo tearing through the iconic 2nd street tunnel out onto the 10 west towards the ocean, leaving the city's warehouse district in their wake. Label regulars Achterbahn D'amour reimagine "Diamond Lanes" as a skeletal electro roller with their remix version. The closer "Deep Traffic" is a bugged-out acid cut which captures the feeling of sitting alone in a crowd of autos, crawling towards eternal sunset.
