Acid Lab returns to Stepping Forward for his sophomore follow up to In The Shades & Without You. On the second ride in the Stepping Forward area we’re given more luscious Liquid Drum & Bass vibes in the form of ‘Distant Lights’ and ‘Mr. Evans’ ad this time around label boss A1-Voodoo joins the party with a wikkid remix of Mr. Evans!
‘Distant Lights’ continues the laid back vibe of Acid_Lab’s previous release with an echo’y horn and smooth piano riff that mesh into the endless undulating bass line. Rolling drums carry you through the duration without breaking the mood even once. This is the rollers delight. Backing up the opening cut, ‘Mr. Evans’ continues the vibe with a classy pairing of similar sounds and vibes… but this is where A1-Voodoo’s tear-out remix switches up the pace; partly into the first two minutes of the ‘Mr. Evans’ remix a mood change descends and things get devious. Moody synths and a distinctive arp lead the way through the break dropping you into a relentless amen work out. Switches on the drums and original song’s piano and drums play out from there leading to an unstoppable last movement that will smash up ANY dance!
