Retro Acid

Retro Acid - Sat 25-10-08, Kunstencentrum Viernulvier

General Info


Retro-Acid is Kozzmozz’ second oldest concept and celebrates the infamous Roland TB-303 bass machine. Thé party for the fans of the 303 and it’s unmistakable Acid sound, the machine that formed and shaped electronic music and keeps influencing it. It surely did so in the early days when we loved to dance to it ! And the current Acid revival proves that we still do today !

It also means the Retro Acid parties are still very alive and kicking and again we have invited some international guests that have been active in electronic music for a very long time and know the acid sounds of the beginning like no others …

Our resident Spacid has played a lot of major clubs in Belgium and abroad ( Weekend Club – Berlin, The Key and Trash – Uk , Paradiso and Melkweg – Nl , … ) but he’s still at his best at home !

Tyree Cooper is one of the originators of Acid House, pioneering the sound back in the 80´ies from Chicago through various hits on the underground label DJ International. More recently one of his big hits ‘Turn up the Bass’ was re-released on Epic and his own label Supa Dupa Recordings with remixes.

Ben Sims is known for his trademark funky/ tribal Techno but Acid is one of his favorite styles and he even puts on Acid parties in London himself sometimes. He’s looking forward to playing a real acid set on Retro Acid.

And who knows, maybe we will be treated to something special between Tyree Cooper and Ben Sims on stage as they have been known to do in the past with Tyree MC’ ing over Bens records …

Next to this extravaganza, we also bring you Belgian topper X&Trick, the leading force behind the Bug Klinik label and parties next to numerous others events. Bugklinik recently expanded with a web-label and booking-agency and X-trick is also working on new projects such as Endiku. He’s currently also playing all the biggest and best experimental festivals in Europe.

JRD, based in Antwerp, originally from Holland, got interested in dance music when New-beat and Acid-house was introduced. Since than he has been playing records and experiencing the evolution of electronic dance music. He’s the founder of the Dutch Resistance-concept in Antwerp and one of the resident powers at Technoir and Metrotechno. This night he will go back to the start, 20 years ago, 1988, Acieeeeed !
