After taking the scene by storm in 2019, i_o has unveiled the first of his three-part 444 series with the release of ACID 444 which is out now for your listening pleasure.

There is no doubt about it that i_o has been on a monumental rise in 2019. Whether it was his massive performances at festivals like EDC Las Vegas, the constant stream of original releases that have kept crowds moving, or his remixes that hit hard, his following of techno demons continued to grow. Now, he’s shown that he doesn’t plan to slow down anytime soon with the release of ACID 444.

The first of a three-part album series, ACID 444 delivers four fresh tunes from i_o to lose your mind to on the dancefloor. Kicking off with “Kill Process” listeners are immediately thrown into the depths of the realm that he’s created. Dark, trippy, and energetic, it sets the tone for what’s to come on the rest of the EP.

“Rave 444” throws you into a tailspin as the retro rave vibes take over in full force and capture your soul. “Replicate” interlaces some synths that remind me of some harder trance tunes that would fit perfectly for the setting before crashing out with “System Error” that will continue that warping of your mind while keeping the pedal to the metal the entire time.
