303 and 909 are here to get you: ProOne79 – Nasty Mo #Techno #Acid #Raw

No time for sophistication here. Let’s give it some raw acid techno from ProOne79.

ProOne79 is Gioele Cantoni from Sardinia, Italy who “loves acid music and old school flavoured house and techno.” Acid techno is a variant derived from acid house and developed in Europe in the late 1980s to early 1990s. It applied the “squelching” synthesizer sound of Chicago acid house to harder-edged techno material. And all of that is here in abundance on Nasty Mo.

Nasty Mo is part of a twin track release with Let There Be. It’s a really powerful example of what acid techno can do in the right hands. It opens four-square with the acid sounds of a TB-303 before solid bass beats come in. It has a raw analogue feel that allows it to sit fatly in the intersection of Chicago and Europe.

The track punches hard from the start and doesn’t really relent. There are phases where it’s harder and phases where it’s a little more restrained. But that’s all relative since the in-your-face aesthetic never really lets up.

Listen up and take your beating. You’ll enjoy it.
