'ACID RAIN': FIVE CD BOX SET

Exclusive promo mix of Terry Farley acid house comp

Internationally acclaimed UK house veteran Terry Farley transports us back to the late '80s hedonism of acid house with a five-disc classics compilation,'Terry Farley Present Acid Rain: Definitive Original Acid & Deep House 1985-1991', released by Harmless Records. 

To compliment the release, DJ collective Six Million Steps have recorded us an exclusive mix using tracks from the album. Incorporating their knowledge and experience of the scene, the mix weaves in news clips of the era to highlight the strong political and social conflict that acid house caused between the establishment and Britain's youth, who were united in a way not seen since the '60s.  

Featuring exemplary, genre-defining material from the likes of Mr. Fingers, Frankie Knuckles, Virgo 4 and Juan Atkins' techno-edged outift Model 500, it's an absolute goldmine of seminal tunes and lost gems that would set you back a fair amount were you to try and track them down on Discogs.
