Mixing together acid, italo, electro and techno, Roy Of The Raver’s Acid Royale might not be the most spectacular of releases, but was one I found myself constantly returning to. There were always times to play the same tunes; they merged from casual to party anthem in mere moments. It’s a fun and beautiful release and provides two tracks which should be a highlight for anyone to hear: Go Skiing is a dusty twinkly tune that uplifts, excites and absorbs whist also playing on being disturbing; En Trance 10 is 15 minutes of pure pleasure, it crescendos before returning to the mysterious plateau from which it came. One that went under the radar this year, but remains a 2017 favourite.
