Acid Mondays – Salvia Sessions EP – Illusions Recordings

April 20, 2013

ILL007 has a licence to kill (It), coming courtesy of Illusion Family members Acid Mondays with a stunning remix at the hands of Detroit legend Delano Smith.

The 5th dimensional duo appeared on the first Illusion EP with their warehouse inspired club stomper ´Fomo´ which was lauded by many from Brawther to Cajmere as one of the best house and techno tracks of 2011. A follow-up track on Illusion´s sister label INNERCIRCLE bought similar praise and now we are proud to present their long awaited debut EP on Illusion. With a penchant for hallucinogenic Mondays on their home base of Ibiza, the ‘Salvia Sessions EP’ takes you on a rhythmic, hypnotic, tribal laced House journey into the inner workings of the cosmic duo´s minds.

Lead track ´Got To Get Higher´ has been a secret weapon of choice the past year for a select few DJs who have been lucky enough to get their hands on a copy. The hypnotic house vibe is pumped along by the duo´s cajual-esque drums, which intertwine beautifully with layer upon layer of vocals, FX and a thunderous sub-bass to create a monster of a club track ready for the biggest dance floors. On remix duties, label heads Tom Craven & James Cotterill have drafted in Detroit’s Delano Smith for his first outing on the label and boy he does deliver. Delano pumps up the tempo and vibe and builds an insatiable groove around his typically classy motor city beats and eerie strings, delicately seducing elements of the original hooks in and out of rework to create a mesmerising, loopy dance floor House bomb!

On the B-side, the duo contrast the A-side with two tracks which are a little deeper and take their inspirations from many a Monday in Ibiza. ´Me! I´m Over Here´ builds its structure around their typical solid drums and layered vocals, pumping along consistently bar two long breaks, which provide the track with two much needed breaths in preparation for the fist pumping that commences after the beats kick back in. ´Watching Eastwood´ takes a more slung back, sultry vibe, showcasing a deeper side to the duo´s usual pumping club tracks. The suggestive vocals entice you in and the funk of the b-line and beats get the head nodding and the hips shaking. This EP is prime dance floor material and reinforces the fact that Acid Mondays are a cosmic, tea-drinking force to be reckoned with!! Acciiiiidddddd!!!
