The Acid Series celebrates over 10 years of No Way Back, with music that directly references that experience. This is the third volume in the series, to be followed by BMG & Derek Plaslaiko, and there will be four more after this pair, with records by Tin Man & Ectomorph, Dona, Romans, and Pervocet (Patrick Russell & Jasen Loveland) yet to come. They all arrive in a unique sleeve especially created for this series, inspired by the decorations of NWB.
Jordan Zawideh’s music perfectly reflects his personal migration from Detroit to Chicago. It somehow combines the raw elegance of a Larry Heard demo (listen to the demos of “A Path” or “Acid Dreams” and cry) with Detroit Techno and an unconscious take on the sonic exploration of Drexciya, showcased in songs like “Magellanic Cloud” and “Trails of Sophia”. In Jordan’s sound, the raw power of the cassette era of Chicago House combines with a Detroit Acid Dream.
