Nic Brown Johannes Auvinen, aka Tin Man, has been on a mission to reinvigorate and push forward his most beloved electronic genre, namely acid, for over 10 years and, despite some seeing him as nothing more than a diehard retroist, there's no denying that plenty of his music is possessed of the forward-thinking inventiveness his critics insist it must lack. Volume 11 of his "Acid Test" series of collaborative series EPs (this is no flash in the pan), jointly produced by Jozef K and Winter Sun, contains three of the most gorgeous tunes he's ever been involved with and I couldn't give a flying fuck how many times acid has been round the block, this is electronic music of the very highest quality. Favorite track: Pendle By Night.

    Since his last full-length, Ode, Tin Man, AKA Johannes Auvinen, has taken a collaborative approach to acid, bringing his 303 box into studio scenarios with Cassegrain, John Tejada, AAAA and Gunnar Haslam in order to explore new territory. On Acid Test 11, Auvinen’s arrived on a seamless pairing with Manchester production duo Jozef K and Winter Son. On the title track, Tin Man’s acrobatic 303 no longer has to do the melodic heavy lifting—the Mancunians provide a sturdy yet plaintive piano base that allows a duet of acid lines to cut through the heady atmosphere. Interdimensional Transmissions boss Erika toughens things up considerably with her “Fate’s Unknown” remix, stripping things back to a creepy, jacking core. “Pendle By Night” underlines the ad hoc trio’s propensity for widescreen heft. The track’s epic, emotional tone feels like a natural product of the collaboration.
