Maurice ‎– This Is Acid (A New Dance Craze) (US 12″)

From Underground to Overground as people become curious about this late 80’s dance sound. Released in ’88 by Maurice Joshua who did a bit of a Guy Called Gerald by bursting on the scene with this classic. Originally the B-side of his debut single “”I Gotta Big Dick” (???) it was remixed by London DJ , Les Adams (from DMC) given it Worldwide success the following year. The “Sharon & Tracy” mix is the more commercial sounding, whilst the “Kevin & Trevor” mix was a the harder, more clubby style with more of the typical House sounds thrown in, Todd Terry-ish. (Sexism and remix’s heh?)

I think a prefer the “Deep Dub” with its bird tweets and 808 State vibe.

Acid-Lite or Deep House ?
