Sweltering Acid: Hyuga Daichi’s Hazard Area EP

In the unexpectedly solid combos department, sweltering hot July days make for a good time to listen to acid house. Hokkaido’s Hyuga Daichi delivers a melter of an EP in Hazard Area, which just doubles down on acid sounds to create these high-energy dance numbers that somehow sound even better as sweat trickles down your face (maybe I should just turn on my air conditioner?). Daichi approaches the tracks here from a slow-burning dancefloor angle (see the twin monsters in the back to back “Re-Hi01” set, which build up to delirious finishes) to just being direct and uptempo (“Saitama Neo Sonic”). Get it here, or listen below.
