Although acid was always part of Luke Vibert’s musical make-up, and had infiltrated almost all his records in one way or another, it was not given a proper platform until YosepH a couple of years ago. Yet, Vibert had already managed to place a series of limited edition four-track twelve-inches filled up with his unmistakable blend of acid on Mike Paradinas’s Planet Mu, starting with the 95-99 EP released in 2000, then with Homewerk two years later and Lover’s

Kerrier District went back to deep Italo Disco, Wagon Christ was weird and wonderful: this is the deepest and most ballsy record Luke Vibert has seen involved in (in at least a year!) and truly suited to Planet Mu. Tweaking blips and banging percussion blended with some seriously sychedelic funk is Vibert's speciality here but there is far more... In parts it's a hard-core
