Philadelphia duo Zillas on Acid have released a new EP, "Sorry I was In VR", through Jordan Nocturne's Belfast-based label.
The EP consists of three original cosmic acid improvisations, from the dizzying turbulence of the title track's dance floor to the squelch downtempo of "He Wasn’t Afraid." It's three stunning acid-soaked cuts and a stellar remix from Vanessa Worm, an artist whose impressive debut album on Optimo Music was one of the most prominent releases of 2020, and who on this record gives a hard-hitting, track-ready reworking of dance, with a tongue-in-cheek sample of Hot Butter's 'Popcorn' sample forever included.
Altogether, this album is as experimental as it is intense and addictive, it takes over oneself like sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, as few producers with a certain fluidity are willing to do. We do not know what the future holds, but we do know that this record is testimony to a turbulent and uncertain present, which will remain in our memory forever. For records like this, we can continue to fight for a better future.
