Fake Chicken & Cheap Soap - Jack Back

Greenhorn RecordsBack on a tech house tip now, with a driving, upbeat offering from one of the most oddly-named artists I've ever come across (although Australia's legendary, and possibly entirely fictitious, Oh My God It's There Don't Go In Ronnie You'll Be Killed have yet to be beaten in that respect)

Sorry, where was I? Oh yeah, driving, upbeat and bordering on out-and-out techno, but still with plenty of funk and groove, Jack Back (not Just Just as for some reason I said before) in its Original form is an acid-squelched dancefloor romp par excellence. Alexkid supplies an Acid Dub that basically IS techno but is also quite a bit deeper, and well worth checking. I'm less keen on the Alexi Delano rub, which does that 'unnecessary stuttering' thing to the beats that's so prevalent in techno but still, two out of three, etc…

So yeah, essentially this is a techno record. But it's a rather good techno record, so don't let that put you off. Acieed!

Out: This week

About: This is on Namito's label Greenhorn Records, part of the Great Stuff/Kling Klong family. Greenhorn themselves describe it as "the classic sounds of acid house, complemented by a contemporary techno vibe," which kind of works. You can find Greenhorn Records on Facebook. And Fake Chicken & Cheap Soap as well, come to that.
