Everything about this reminds us of the olden days, from the name Brown Acid to the posicore title (happy rave days dudes) to the fuzziness of the sample and, of course, the part where Zomby takes the band's name literally and turns in a proper acid house track. The other day we were in Other Music and bought an old 808 State album we'd lost long ago. Thought twice about it at first—impulse buy?—but it still sounds as sick as it did in the Mesozoic period of our youth. Zomby makes no bones about his love for classic '90s rave music, but when he feels like making tracks in the spirit of particular genres, they are never throwbacks, just the freshest improvements from an imaginative talent. Incidentally, the original is this sort of cabaret pop electro and barely a fragment remains in the remix, just how it should be.
