There seems to be a pleasingly simple idea behind Richy Ahmed's "Sneaky Acid", the Hot Creations regular's first single of 2014. Put simply, the original is a clear attempt to blend the smooth swing of Hot Creations' wide eyed take on deep house with the roughneck feel of original acid house. It's a blend that works well, particularly on the alternative Dub version, which puts greater emphasis on Ahmed's twisted 303 lines and dense, dancefloor-friendly percussion. There's more tough retro-futurist fare on the flip, with the two-part "The Bells". Both sound a little like a contemporary take on Brown Album-era Orbital, and feature looped synthesizer riffs reminiscent of the latter's "Remind".
