Posthuman - Airwave Uranium
12" Posthuman are London based cousins Josh Doherty and Rich Bevan. The pair have been pivotal in the recent resurgence of UK acid house via a steady stream of their own output, notorious I Love Acid club nights and their own imprint; Balkan Vinyl. Not satisfied with just one successful record label -the I Love Acid brand has recently announced a double LP from legendary UK electronica artist Luke Vibert.
The past 12 months have seen Posthuman on a hot streak with a standout release on Glasgow based Craigie Knowes coming shortly after their critically acclaimed album, Mutant City Acid. Both records found their way into DJ bags far and wide.
It’s X-Kalay next and the duo have served up a pair of typically stripped back acid work outs. Title track “Airwave Uranium”is an exercise in crescendo; building slowly with supple acid lines and menacing pads into a full blown peak time monster. “King Rat” is a raucous 303 jam; elastic basslines, warped synths and punchy drumsensuring this cut is guaranteed to receive heavy rotation. On the flip X-Kalay artist and up and coming acid wunderkid Lou Karsh reworks Airwave Uranium into a real 303 masterclass. Tip!
