San Francisco disco warriors Anthony Mansfield and JP Soul are triumphant after the success of the Ode To Moulton EP, and their collaboration continues to yield funky fruit, most recently with the top track "Everything Is Real." No laurel-resting for these two … they've already bounced back with a brand new release for Roam Recordings, the tauntingly titled Whatchu Know About Acid? EP. 303-fueled mischief abounds as the pair fries circuit boards and brain cells alike with three tracks firmly planted in acid house territory. The title track launches the release, grooving to a sexy beat as drum machines and acid lines conspire with a refreshingly human feel. "Two Girlfriends" follows, getting down and gritty into a rhythmic, psychedelic romp driven by an insistent and heavy bass synth pulse. "Time-lapse" closes out the proceedings, delving deeper into a moody hypnotic world of distorted and tripped-out sounds. These three cuts all masterfully weave together into a deep and exquisite acid journey … Roam Recordings certainly knows its acid.
Sunshine Jones (Dubtribe) - "JP Soul and Anthony Mansfield are flippin' amazing. 'Whatchu Know Bout Acid' and 'Two Girlfriends' are stunners."
Sleazy McQueen - "'Whatchu Know Bout Acid' is the sickest acid jam I've heard in a while. It's comfortably akin to Abe Duque and old Chicago."
Gene Farris - "These are all great tracks!"
Hard Ton (Gigolo / Permanent Vacation) - "Love it! 'Time-lapse' is the one … rave on!"

Rory Hoy (Howlin' Records / Super Hi-Fi) - "Everybody loves a 303!"
Benjamin Roeder (Kong / Spectacle) - "I love your acid!"
Al Bradley (3am Recordings) - "Another utter stunner from the Roam camp. All three are superb, but 'Two Girlfriends' really is phenomenal. I can't wait to drop this!"

DJ Nova (Rodon FM, Greece) - "Cosmic edges, sharp builds, weird and intoxicating electronics … I'm in."
