DJ Mix: The Funk So Rubber


When I first heard a TB303 “acid” track it sounded like nothing else. The wobbling portamento tones slid into each other like the mailable, bouncy rubber and created an alien kind of funk.

Those sounds were developed in the ’80s Chicago house scene by artists like Phuture (DJ Pierre & friends), and continued to evolve throughout the ’90s, particularly in the UK “acid house” movement, and they’re still a major influence on bouncy tunes today.

I’m always a sucker for a good tweaked-out acid line and this mix encapsulates some of my favorite rubbery tracks:
