Carl Cox and fat thin boy are two of the most respected legendary figures in electronic music. So when we heard these two were releasing a collab, we were thrilled. Whether you’re a techno fan or not, “Acid speed testsis a remarkable testimony to the more than 30 years of mastery of these two icons.
This track combines the best of both artists. Carl Cox lays down a haunting techno groove, while Fatboy Slim adds his signature acid lines. Above it all comes a hypnotic voice from Detroit artist Dan Diamond, who casts a real spell over us with his impassioned narration. Its conscious monologue flow works in tandem with the thumping, driving beat, immediately drawing the listener into the song’s grip. The result is rave-ready magic.
Here’s what Cox had to say about that track:
I thought Norman might like it because he likes a bit of acid in his music. He came up with the idea of incorporating Dan’s vocals and adding string work to the track to make it what it is now. When I listened to the final result, I thought it was absolute genius. He brought his own flavor to it and I think it’s a stunning job. I’m really proud of what we’ve created.
This track is a preview of Cox’s album to be released later this year. Until then, you can check it out using the link below. Enjoy!
