Chicago house staple and Vanguard Sound head honcho, Amir Alexander, has announced the launch of his new label, Aaacid. Aiming to provide a platform for the progression of acid house and jak beat – “while staying left of center, and keeping a dark sense of humor in the process” – Aaacid will see its inaugural release from Alexander himself, under the alias Jack Ingoff.

Talking to Resident Advisor, Alexander explained how he needed to find a home for his collection of acid productions. “It finally dawned on me that I should create an alias/side project/alter ego to address this issue,” he said. “Now, as for Jack Ingoff I cannot say much. He’s a former gangbanging child prodigy and part-time pimp who realized he was livin’ fowl and gave up the street life to pursue production full-time. He records with his twin brother Richie Ratchet as “We Love Chicken Heads” and their older sister is also a producer by the name of Betty Ball Breaker.”

The 4-track Smiley Virus EP will drop via Aaacid on October 10, and will be limited to 222 hand-stamped copies. 

Tracklist:

01. Guantanamo Bay02. Zombie03. Procession Of The Nobles04. MOAB – Mothers Of All Bombs

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
