Let Me Get That 303...

It’s all about the 303 these days. For those not aware, a ’303′ is a kit found in many software synthesizers and plugins. It’s that distinct ‘acid’ sound we have all come to be very familiar with. The 303 has been one of the most stable and attributable qualities of dance music since the early days of that lovely 145 BPM Chicago techno. These acid sounds are making a sudden resurgence in dance music. The popularity of these sounds can be seen with Nicky Romero‘s new track ‘Generation 303‘, which has surged to the #2 spot on Beatport (Overall), not even one week after its release on Musical Freedom. Lately, many producers have just stepped into the 303 game, after seeing the ridiculous effect it has on the dancefloor.

Anyway, I’d like to share with you some of my favorite acid records, as it’s been one of my favorite sounds in dance music from the very beginning. There is quite a variety of tunes here, and I’ve organized them in no particular order; however, I recommend checking all of them out. I think it’s pretty undeniable that no matter what type of music one is into, everyone has a special place in their heart for some acid. :) Cheers.
