More than twenty years have passed since the dawn of acid house, but there’s no shortage of people making tracks inspired by the original Chicago acid sounds. There seems to be a never ending revival going on, but most producers are happy making carbon copies of acid tracks or boring 303 based cuts. Thankfully, there are guys out there like Bonnie Drasko, who know the score. Drasko was only born in the early 80s, but his take on acid house is exciting and pays respect to past masters such as Mr. Fingers, Phuture and Adonis. Here, Drasko debuts on Lace with the mighty Acid And Fresh EP, which features two devastating dancefloors efforts and a handy remix from Manuel Perez. This EP adds to the diversity of the Lace catalogue, following on from the jazzied grooviness of Aqua Bassino and Manuel Perez’s Luv’Inside and Detroit house legend Alton Miller’s Everyday I Do.
Who is Bonnie Drasko? He is a Spanish DJ and producer named Marius F, who is from Northern Catalonia. Born in 1981, Drasko has had a long love affair with music. He started his musical studies aged 8 and later discovered the joys of electronic dance music. Aged 18, Bonnie Drasko moved to Barcelona, where he fell under the spell of the city’s club scene, inspired by sounds emanating from Detroit, Chicago and Berlin. In 2004, Drasko started DJing and making his own music, inspired by styles such as techno, house, minimal, disco and electro. In the last five years, he has DJ’d at many clubs and parties. He has released a number of his own tracks on digital labels and other platforms.
Acid And Fresh in original form is a magical acid groover. It features cool keys, snapping beats and wave after wave of acid.
The Manuel Perez remix of Acid And Fresh is a darker interpretation with added title snippets. Here the acid bubbles, the bass provides raw power and the keys add extra sparkle.
We Choose To Go To The Moon is a bumping deep house effort with added acid charm. It’s another surefire dancefloor hit with urgent stabs, flying keys and smart percussion.
