Acid Junkies

Acid Junkies’ music is all about having fun: nowadays the only motivation for them is that they enjoy making the music and playing it for a crowd. They do not conform to any hipster styles or fashion, they just make and play the music they like. Live, they present themselves with a mix of solid techno music, played live and edited and enhanced with fragments of all kinds of dance music, spanning the last 20 years.

On singles and albums, the band's music has gone through a comparable evolution: Having started with the purest acid house music from the USA as a source of inspiration, the Acid Junkies add more and more modern elements to their music over the years. As a result, an entirely new sound has come into existence, both technically and musically.  The name of the band might be the only memory of their past, musically speaking the band already steps into the future.

In 2008 Acid Junkies introduce a new digital label to the music world: AJ Records. The label is primarily a digital imprint, with high quality releases distributed my many popular online stores. Occasionally a vinyl or CD release will occur, depending on demand. The label artists are not limited to the Acid Junkies, they have invited their friends and fellow musicians to contribute. The style of music varies, but is mostly targeted at a dance floor audience. Ranging from old skool acid bleeps to high tech electro with a scent of industrial and EBM-Body music, they can go anywhere they want with this label and that is exactly why they founded it.

Their latest release is Classix. With this series they present the legacy works ranging from their very first output of the early '90's to the 21'st century. All tracks are completely restored and remastered to give them the punch dance music needs today. But good acid techno is timeless, fun to make and even more fun to listen or dance to. So that's why Acid Junkies think you should get their best tracks in the best quality. Keep on smiling! This release opens with a theme from the past, back in the days when life was good and acid was simply … acid. From their Jackpot album comes the track “da Junks Fool Brother”, a massive lead cutting its way through the beats. The “F Factor” stands for….not what you might think. Food was always on our minds as much as the gear was on the minds of the train-spotters who we dedicated that song too. Finally “Graveyard” makes a nice ravy ending to these 5 classic tracks…
