Track of the day #47 – File under acid lines #2

First there was house, then there was acid. In the grand scheme that acid house music is, Maurice Joshua or just Maurice was at the right place at the right moment when he released in late 1988 his genre defining “This Is Acid“. “I Got A Big Dick” is another favorite, but for some reason his third track from that same year seems to have slipped through the cracks of history, probably because it was only release as part of a european compilation and never re-issued. That is a mighty shame as “The Other Side” certainly counts as one of the deepest acid tracks thanks to an inhabited vocal and one of the most beautiful 808 line ever. I think that I’m gonna write about those lines a little in the coming days, but Maurice just had to come first. There you go :
