Roy Of The Ravers is the Nottingham producer whose acid remix anthem ‘Emotinium’ of Ceephax Acid Crew was a sure fire hit across the board a couple of years ago and played in Aphex Twin’s sets with some regularity.
Now All-City sub-label Winthorpe Electronics has released a new 3-track EP of Roy Of The Ravers cuts on vinyl and digital and they are MIGHTY.
My highlight from the release is ‘1999’ a slow-rolling acid romp that builds and builds into an almost euphoric French house synth rush to match its 13-minute running time. Epic.
A-sides ‘S1 E1 Acid Part 1’ and ‘S1 E1 Acid Part 2’ are both percussive acid workouts with bright touches and personality, the former is under four minutes and the latter clocks in at 10.
