Shinjuku by Carl Randall
Little is known about S.O.N.S. besides that he hails from South Korea, however his music and its desirability certainly speaks for itself. Acid Dreams is taken from the enigmatic producer’s second small run release Shinjuku One Night Stand which is packed with “authentic electro tek with dark vocals, beach samples, trance drums, sensitive jams and a subtle jungle feel”. This track takes the listener on a trip to the coast, where a heady soundscape is filled with ocean swirls, 303 resonation and classic breakbeats. Definitely my pick from the double 12″ although do check out the rest of the release and Shibuya One Night Stand for more Detroit techno inspired goodies. Also stay peeled for the next instalment in the Tokyo series, Shimokitazawa One Night Stand, which is sure to be another critically acclaimed and sought after release, coming in 2017.
