New West Coast

Limited Edition 12"

If you are ready for a funky, laid back, acid-laced, lo-fi electronic cruise down the intergalactic boulevard, pop SFV Acid's new 12" EP New West Coast onto the turntable, grab your favorite imbibable and let your sofa do the driving.


The 6 cuts on this vinyl debut feature stronger and funkier beats than heard on the artist's previous Get Laid cd-r but they still ooze a similar cool sensuality.  From the porn-like grooves in "2" to the almost tribal rhythms in "SThPss", it often feels like listening to homebrew tape recordings of his music machines making sweet love to one another.  In fresh head-nodding cuts like "Bobz Skagz" and "Sylmar Cement", the Southern California native takes hints of old school west coast hip-hop influence and twists them into something new and different.  But not to worry, he never leaves his 303 at home, as evidenced in standout track "818 (Beat)" featuring a quick paced acidic bassline paired with funky hi-hat work and a subtle gangsta melody.  Though you may already have the spacey synth funk title track "New West Coast" in digital form as it came as part of his split EP with Polysick, now is your chance to own it on collectible wax.  This valley boy knows what's up and I highly recommend this 12" EP to fans of Space Dimension Controller, EOD's recent Utrecht record, and the ballads of Ceephax Acid Crew.

The 1st pressing of 550 is now available to purchase (500 black vinyl / 50 red white and blue swirled and mixed vinyl) complete with SFV Acid's kooky hand-drawn b&w sleeve artwork direct from L.A. based label Post Present Medium.
