TRIPPIN ON FATTY ACID

File under - electro-acoustic-soul music. Don't judge a book by its cover, don't judge a band by it's name. Producer Jon Sheldrick is far from a hippy but he knows how to let it all hang out. Musically, Fatty Acid draws its influence from the acid house and breakbeat artists of the 90's as well as the electronic composers of the early 20th century, and the French tape-music movement known as Musique Concrète. Heady? Yes. Dope? Of course. Jump in here and trip on their Ropeadope debut.
