Tin Man returns to enter the eighth missive in the series he started with the world-beating Nonneo. Mystified Acid shows Tin Man continuing to hone his ability to draw subtle, emotional tones from the famous acid box. The track builds on the formula established by the Neo Neo Acid LP, using the 303 not as a rhythmic accoutrement, but a genuine songwriting tool. Club-ready drums, a simple bass line and some scratchy, alien synth complete the package. RVDS puts forth a class mix with a set of dueling, mid-range 303 lines and some inspired, portamento-heavy synth improvisation. Joey Anderson toughens up the slightly banging original, inserting his trademark NYC house mysticism.
