REVIEW: John Askew - Battery Acid (Remixes) out on Discover Dark

Some anniversaries need to be celebrated and the 10 years anniversary of John Askews classic - Battery Acid - is definitely one of them.

As one of the tracks that helped define Tech Trance as a genre, Battery Acid is as iconic today as when it was released.

Fast forward 10 years and Zach Zlov and Ellez Ria have delivered stunning remixes to further compliment the Original.

Zach Zlov is on fire right now - with the likes of Askew and Patterson hammering his tunes. This remix shows us exactly why. With Askew's original acid line featuring heavily in the remix, Zach Zlov has further pushed the filth and drive to maximum levels. Approved by the man himself - Zach Zlov's remix more than does the original justice!!!

As do both interpretations from Ellez Ria. It's still all about the acid but brought bang into the now from both remixers.

Pure quality that does not disappoint!!

 [item value="10"]John Askew - Battery Acid (Remixes)[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]John Askew is considered as one of the main driving forces in the UK Trance sound and his  Battery Acid is seminal classic ready to come back for more with 3 turbo charged remixes that will be difficult to avoid on the dancefloors the coming months. Zach Zlov provides his powerful dark tech trance flavoured anthem with fat thumping drums, hard hitting basslines, full on acid overtones and superb arrangement that keeps you at the edge of your seat waiting the next moment to jump up a little higher. Ellez Ria goes for 2 very nice takes. Arkam Reborn version is more straight forward psy tech trance with slamming old school ravey synthy stabs, acid overtones and long melodic fuelled breakdown followed by edgy rough beats. ReFeel version adopts uplifting trance beats, driving head on basslines, cool breakdown with acid playful touches leading to the ethereal breakdown that carry us away to the ferocious totally earthshaking climax with that dark moody twisted edge. Top notch versions not to be missed. #PureGold Love It  [/content]
