Posthuman & Johnny Aux Join CTRL Z This Week on Data Transmission Radio
This week Renyard welcomes not one, but two stalwarts of the modern Acid scene to the CTRL Z radio show for a back to back guest mix – Posthuman, who runs Balkan Vinyl and the I Love Acid Parties and label and Johnny Aux, one half of Paranoid London. This set was recorded at I Love Acid at The Pickle Factory on 14th August, the third leg on their continuing 2021 tour.
I Love Acid started as a one off party at Corsica Studios in 2007 and has gone from strength to strength over the last 14 years. Posthuman puts the success down to the music and the people, “It is, and has always been, about good music and good people. It’s about acid house, but it’s not a retrospective night. It’s new music, classic music, up & coming DJs and legends, all together.”
This approach has certainly worked, the I Love Acid parties always have an intimate and inviting atmosphere, attracting a diverse crowd – “We’ve always had an inclusive, welcoming door policy – we get youngsters turning up with ID to prove they are over 18, and find them dancing alongside older heads who remember acid house first time round. The crowd is queer, and straight, hardcore fans and total newbies. There’s no snobbery.”
The I Love Acid tour continues this Friday 17th September, with Paranoid London at Gorilla in Manchester, before visiting Club 69 in Paisley on the 25th and taking in Birmingham, London, Paisley and Barrow over October and November. Tickets for the remaining dates are available from Skiddle.
You can catch Posthuman b2b Johnny Aux on CTRL Z from 2pm – 3pm this Thursday 16th September on Data Transmission Radio or subscribe to the podcast for the full three hour set which drops the following day.
