Montreal producer Adam Hodgins, who under his Iron Galaxy moniker produces retrospective techno/acid house with a renewed screw, is back with his best creation to date. The glow-sticky, hyper-active energy of “Giving You” is a brilliant up-to-date take on 80’s acid house with just enough tension to sound more electrifying than most similar sounding efforts. The razor sharp bass-line and the aloof soulful vocal sample are married together with pulsating 808’s and a backdrop of Detroit-style textures.
The Detroit to Manchester to Ibiza sound that made the end of the 80’s / early 90’s the most exciting time in electronic music history, is well worth a revisit from time to time and Iron Galaxy makes it a more pleasurable ride than most of his contemporaries.
“Giving You” is lifted of the new EP Things We Lost Along the Way, out via Born Electric on July 15.
