SUMMA CUM LAUDE is pleased to announce the new release from cult Seattle based underground techno producer Collin Strange - Acid Non Musica.
Collin Strange has a long and storied history in the New York City underground music scene of the nineties. From owning a record shop in the East Village, to working at the largest Record distributors, Dj'ing anywhere from the dirtiest lower east side squats to the famed Limelight, from playing in hardcore punk and noise bands, to producing music alone, Strange was around at one of the most vibrant (and transitional) times in New York history.
Following on the success of his highly regarded releases for L.I.E.S., Strange delivers four tracks unrelenting industrial acid. Creepy and unnerving, the tracks are built on a simple formula of pummeling 909 kicks, distorted 303's, and walls of noise. Grim, cold, hopeless acid with no funk, no soul, just pure unchecked aggression for only the hardest dj's. Drawing upon equal parts 80's industrial noise, 90's hard acid techno, and contemporary hardcore punk, Strange's latest release Acid Non Musica makes the current crop of 'dark' techno artists look pale in comparison.
