“Land Of Confusion” is one of the most seminal Chicago Acid House records.Originally released in 1987 on Bam Bam’s Westbrook imprint and produced by the legendary Armando Gallop it marked the start of a recording career that would make him a household name among House and Techno aficionados. To say “Land Of Confusion” is raw is an understatement, it consists of a handful of elements but it’s impact when played is incendiary. Armando’s TB-303 acid lines sound possessed and unruly while the primitive drum machine patterns stagger around the track giving it a feeling of out of control urgency, a truly Lo-fi piece of crazy Chicago acid that was popular with many DJ’s in Chicago (Including Ron Hardy at the Muzic Box) and around the world and continues to be influential today. An essential record for any discerning House or Techno fan.
