Our Friday selection:
Ammara – Acid Fantasy EP (Trick, TRICK029)
Ammara readies her raved up debut ‘Acid Fantasy EP’ on Patrick Topping’s Trick this May.
After her mammoth remix of Will Clarke’s ‘Let’s Rave’ in 2020, Patrick Topping invites London-based DJ/producer Ammara back to his unstoppable Trick imprint, this time for a collection of three killer original productions.
Title cut ‘Acid Fantasy’ leads the release, with its distorted vocals and crunching low-end custom-built for dancefloor mania. ‘The Trip’ takes a dip into the late hours, offering hypnotic basslines and bombastic stabs over robust drums, flipping samples from a well-loved cartoon into a future rave classic.
Closing cut ‘Havoc’ ties the release together with pumping bass and energetic synth work, adding the final touch to an outstanding first EP of no-holds-barred stompers. A testament to both the production skills of Ammara and to Patrick Topping’s knack for A&R alike, ‘Acid Fantasy’ is certain to remain in crates of party-starting selectors for years to come.
