HUGO TRACKS

Today’s HUGO Tracks are defined by acid house. With Robi Insinna aka Headman, Alixander III, and Jerome Derradji, we have chosen three artists who make this style their own: what connects them is their distinctive, nonchalant use of vocals. As usual, all three tracks are available as limited-edition free downloads here on HUGO Tracks.

Robi Insinna aka Headman “Take Me To The Dub” (Version) (Feat. Bozzwell)
Robi Insinna aka Headman is already a HUGO Tracks favorite. Last July, we introduced his album “6” in an exclusive interview. We love the Swiss musician’s unique style, which sits somewhere between nu disco, retro electronica and acid house. “Take Me To The Dub” from his “6 E.P. III”, released digitally and on only 200 vinyl editions, features UK producer and vocalist Bozzwell. With its synth sounds and reverberating beats, this track is typical of Headman’s unique sound.

Alixander III “(She's So) Young” (Feat. Kim E and Gingy)
The second track of today’s edition is characterized by a funky acid-line and intensifying, slightly bubbling bass. “(She's So) Young (Feat. Kim E and Gingy)” by Alixander III, formerly of the duo Azari & III, is the standout track on his “Heavy Friends EP”, recently released on Toy Tonics. The anthem of forbidden love is accentuated by seductive yet menacing vocals from Kim E and techno elements from guest producer Gingy. The result is a track that remains in your head long after you have heard it.

Jerome Derradji “Acid Nothing”
The title of our final track partly speaks for itself. It is one half of Jerrome Derradjis “Machine Jacked”, an ode to Detroit and Chicago house which is even more intense than his previous releases. The two-track release represents his debut on Still Music and “Acid Nothing”, available for free limited download here on HUGO Tracks, escalates from calm house to pure acid with sparse but profound vocals.
