The latest release by Toronto electronic music scene veteran Heiki(Hey-Key), the man behind the infamous Toronto EBM project,Digital Poodle.The vinyl edition features five tracks of relentless, industrial-strength, jacking acid house.A radical departure in soundfrom Heiki’s previous albums, which mainly focused more on downtempo, ambient dub techno sounds, Tower Of Acid, as the title implies, is a pure acid house record. The album relies on analogue 303-style synth sounds and acid house/new beat/industrial influenced rhythms. Most of the recordings were made in a single live off the floor pass. Later edits and over dubs of shortwave radio bursts, phased analogue synthesizer pads and vocoded voices were added to the electronic wall of sound. Themes include abuses of power, fraud, failed populist charlatans and fake news, running rampant in this increasingly dystopian times.
