For the next instalment of the Acid Test series, label regular Tin Man is joined on wax for the first time by John Tejada (with the addition of an Achterbahn D’Amour remix).

A sub-label of Absurd Recordings, Acid Test is the Los Angeles-based imprint with a preference for 303 jams, that has in recent years put out records by the likes of Pépé Bradock, Donato Dozzy and Recondite. For their tenth EP, they call on Los Angeles resident John Tejada, and native Johannes Auvinen (a.k.a. Tin Man) for a collaborative affair which, according to the label, “dwells on the activity which defines life in the City of Angels.” In addition, Acid Test favourites Achterbahn D’Amour, the duo of Edit Piafra and Iron Curtis, offer a remix of “Diamond Lane.”
