Seth Troxler's Play It Say It is a label that's used to a banger or two. The label's ethos is pretty much just that: strictly bangers, with every release aimed straight at the dance floor. The next release is, of course, no different. The Acid EP does exactly what it says on the tin -- ventures down a path that is near and dear to i-D's heart, and that is acid house.

The EP comes complete with acid-laced tracks from Detroit dons Ataxia, Giacomo & Michelangelo and this hefty cut from an artist returning to the label, The Mekanism. It's big, it's bad, and it's got that classic 303 goodness that will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Press play on "Lazy Night" as The Mekanism explains how the track came to fruition. "After some good times at Circo Loco DC10 and seeing Seth play, I wanted to do another acid track with a punchy vibe. Then i tried to feel the DC10 vibe in my studio and the track was born." 

The Acid EP is out February 29 on Play It Say It.
