Paris' Acid Washed is a two-man process primarily, involving deteriorating sound amongst souvenirs, friends, home studios and analog equipment. It follows the blueprint devised by two DJs keen on using modern and vintage equipment to create sophisticated electronics with a sharp pop aesthetic. The result is a fusion of late '90s French house vibes and DFA disco touches that acknowledge the influence of Chicago and Detroit without being overly reverential. Throw names like Steve Reich, Giorgio Moroder and Kraftwerk into the hat as well if you like, but don't dwell on them. The list of big-time collaborators queuing outside the hit-factory is getting larger by the day and shows no sign of dying down anytime soon. The romantic and cinematic vision of Acid Washed slots in perfectly alongside the widescreen-zombie-electro of Kavinsky and the sophisticated bedroom grooves by S├ębastien Tellier. A glittering fusion of Paris dance sophistication, and Detroit's dirt-flecked sound.
