In your opinion, what is the label with the coolest name out there? In ours, it’s When Disco Goes Wrong, the growing Swedish platform managed by local legends Janne “Högt I Tak” Berglund (SXDNS179) and Marten “Mindbender” Attling. In their vision, Disco has actually not gone wrong or died, but evolved, turned into a plethora of genres and sub/micro-genres that have kept the boogie alive and kicking, and sometimes wrapped with heavy doses of acid – their favourite shape of what Disco has become. And if you are familiar with their work, you know how fond the lads are of acid. Take as an example the title of Högt I Tak’s forthcoming EP: “Acid Rave”. Believe it or not, this is the very first EP on his own label. His previous appearances were on compilations or other artists’ releases as a remixer.
For the occasion, Janne spared no efforts and brought the 90s back with four intense originals that showcase his capabilities and creativity as a producer. “Jittery Acid”, premiered here, is a peak time hellish beast featuring Techno and early Rave elements topped with indecent amounts of… yes, you know the answer. It is definitely one of the best tracks of the year so far. Caveat emptor: The trip is intense, handle with care.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
