ltd 2019 repress , black vinyl - for all the acid that is coming out through this so-called -acid revival- i was somehow missing the good old hook of the 90s acid-techno tracks. after countless requests to do some new acid again it finally clicked with me and i had this - in my opinion - great acid hook to jump along to for the acid to the future track. i really love this one and it could ve been big in the 90s i guess...so hopefully this will click with the listeners also today :-) acid funk and acid jaxx pretty much speak for themselves and are funky groovin acid tracks with a more modern touch mixed with the old vibe flavour. machine banger is definitely on the harder side and was done for ferox this is acid... nothing else- va compilaton on kobayashi.hands up and have fun... we love and release on vinyl !

following contributions by dj deep and dj hell, tresor records are proud to present the third instalment in their kern mix-series, this time headed by berlin based producer objekt, his first release following his 2014 debut album flatland for pan. in keeping with the series mission of showcasing a more personal approach to mixing hertz describes his process as such, kern vol. 3 is made up of tracks that i know i will play and love for years to come. some of these records have been in my bag for years others are almost as new to me as they are to you. a handful are by lesser known artists whom i admire and who i think deserve wider recognition. planned, recorded, embellished, reworked, tweaked and chiselled away at over a period of 6 months, the mix was gradually carved out in a way that makes use of new and old techniques alike, presenting itself primarily as a dj mix but settling in a sweet spot between live recording and studio trickery. the tracklist spans styles, decades and bpms in an attempt to craft a mix thats unpredictable and compelling in equal measure – one that draws from the more adventurous corners of my club sets, but above all, one thats a pleasure to listen to.
