Acid Mondays, the duo of Negghead and Lex Wolf known for their releases on 2020 Vision, Compost, Magnetic and Circus Recordings, bring us the 7th instalment of the Gangstercast. The duo state they were formed somewhere in the 5th dimension and were brought together by their "love for fat beats, inter dimensional travel & cups of tea." With more of those fat beats coming throughout 2013 for Sascha Dive’s Deep Vibes label, Illusion Recordings and Nilla, it's clear to see why they're picking up plays from Laurent Garnier, Tobi Neumann, Ricardo Villalobos, Dan Ghenacia, Yousef, Sebo K and DJ Sneak.
So, onto their Gangstercast! The hour-long mix includes Acid Mondays' latest productions and tracks from artists they have other links with. The mix sums up exactly what the House Gangster sound means to them: "Fat beats, raw grooves that are designed for the dancefloor but never forgetting the party!" It's clear House music is central to everything they do: "It is a source of life, a feeling, a reflection of time!" - a vibe we're most definitely down with. While listening to the mix look out for the Acid Mondays remix of S-men which they regard as one of their all time best tracks and secret weapons, and a nice nod to House Gangster pioneer DJ Sneak on the last track.
