Azzecca drops fun, hard-driving acid trip single ‘It’s Strange’

Chicago’s Azzecca, still spiralling upwards after rocketing to the heights in one frantic year, now unveils her DGTL Records debut; the fun, yet hard driving, acid trip ‘It’s Strange’, dropping May 23rd on the revered Dutch imprint.

Azzecca likes a drop of acid in her house, and the team of tastemakers in her corner like what she does with it, as in her last zinging single ‘Forget’: BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders was a fan of its sharp edge, Danny Howard featured her mini mix ‘Evolution of Acid’, and other powerful names like Sarah Story, Arielle Free, Mixmag, SPIN, DJ Mag have also supported her relentless rise.

‘It’s Strange’: full-on acid now with hissy busy beats and that signature fast, stomped-on bass synth your teeth can feel, recalling the mid-80s acid house born in her native city. A trippy vox pop of spoken vocals throughout talk in technicolour’. Says Azzecca, ‘It’s strange, but I like it… I wanted to make something cheeky and fun for the summer dancefloors. I’ve been really enjoying playing with analog acid sounds and using my own vocals. This track is a little acid trip, about a little acid trip and the second drop has been lighting up dancefloors for months now.’

The release of ‘It’s Strange’ is sandwiched between a spectacular run of shows for Azzecca; two recent sets at Coachella’s Do LaB, and upcoming sets at Floyd (Miami), Movement Festival (Detroit), Audio River Festival (PL), The Midway (SF), Radio 1 Dance Ibiza (alongside LF System, CamelPhat, Gorgon City, Armand van Helden), Brooklyn Mirage and ARC Festival in her home town.

It’s strange, but you’ll like it too.
