Acieed! tape compilation
You walk into the Dalston Oxfam Shop. The bin of tapes lies before you with the slightly dank smell of worn clothing wafting from the racks nearby. Stale dust from countless little corners of homes where the owners' cigarettes and crisp crumbs linger in the plastic cases. Then you see a faded colored photocopied cassette cover which says "Acieed!" and some dodgy graphics and you know that someone has lovingly left you one of their personal comp tapes.
I don't think this would quite qualify as Acid, but I'd appreciate comments on the topic. No track listing was included and I'd love it if anyone could identify tracks, or even better, give me any info about the tape. Either way, enjoy.
[Revision: based on the tip from Double K, I have done some more searching and realized that Acieed was not just a clever name for a tape, it was actually a period/genre in the early 90's after Acid House which preceded Happy Hardcore. Some better known of the tunes from this time were apparently D Mob - We Call It Acieed and Hit House - Deep Piano House. I am somewhat restricted as to what I can post, based on what the oxfam shop offers me, but there is some fantastic music from this time, such as the tune sampled in the video below.]
