Boddika returned strong this month with his first solo outing since last years Grand Prix for Naked Lunch. As much as this years earlier collaborations with Joy Orbison (Swims & Froth/Mercy) were well received, to put it mildly, it is nice to see some well anticipated solo stuff get a release.
'Acid Jackson' has a fair helping of Boddika's own acidic style and by his standards is pretty upbeat. Sprinkled with a fair helping of electro vibes and cowbell, this is definitely for moving your body to. However, it is the darker of the two tracks, 'Basement', that really catches the attention with some seriously bass heavy 808 beats.
Acid Jackson - Boddika [Swamp81]
This is just the beginning though, with a remix 12" of 'Soul What' - slated for release around the summer on Swamp81 - from Mickey Pearce, a forthcoming release on Naked Lunch and according to Loefah there also an apparent Boddika LP in the pipeline.
Until then Acid Jackson / Basement is vinyl only on Swamp81 from all good record stores.
