Some tracks help to drown out work, clean the house, play a game of cards, study, read, drive, walk, whatever. Once in a while though a track comes along that fully envelops you both emotionally and physically, leaving no room for anything else, and such is the case with Choice (Laurent Garnier) – Acid Eiffel. A swirling 303 acid line is soon joined by a sea of warm strings and crisply arranged 909 percussion, slowly introducing modifications to each of the elements on the main theme. At 13+ minutes this is an epic journey of emotive electronics.
I can still remember vividly the first night I was introduced to this track, and every time I hear it again I’m transported back to that perfect magical morning nearly 15 years ago as the sun rose slowly over the horizon, awash in a collective experience of innocence and dance.
