Ceephax Acid Crew

Well-connected Cornish raver calms down a bit

Trending Now

With Squarepusher as a brother, Aphex Twin as patron and Ed DMX as label boss, Andy Jenkinson’s debut album was hardly likely to be alt.country. Sure enough, Ceephax Acid Crew fits comfortably into the Aphex-patented Braindance genre:lush melodic constructions whose intricacies don’t obscure their debt to rave.

Graceful stuff, thrown into relief by a second CD that compiles some of Jenkinson’s infrequent EPs, mentions “Acid” in eight out of 14 titles, and brings his squelchier, brutalist predilections to the fore.
