I have said this before, and I will say it again: Free your mind and your ASS will follow! Open your 3rd eye and repeat after me: ACID ACID ACID HOUSE! The new Auragraph album entitled New Standard comes out Nov. 17th via Dais Records is FUCKING UNREAL! Over the course of 8 thumping tracks, Carlos Ramirez, aka AURAGRAPH, reshapes Acid House in his likeness and I love it! I would be lying if I said the world was not a heavy place right now, but like Soul 2 Soul says, “A HAPPY FACE. A THUMPIN’ BASS. FOR A LOVIN’ RACE.” As I listen to New Standard, I can’t help but think about how music has the power to heal and that’s just what this record does from beginning to end!
Auragraph has manifested one of my favorite dance records of 2023. Blasting tunes like “No Longer Here” make me imagine my ancestors dancing their pain away with nothing but love and the groove in their hearts. Auragraph looked to the past for inspiration while pushing all of us with ears to hear the future! Not one word was uttered on New Standard but this record says it all with its infectious rhythms! Join me as I celebrate the new Auragraph single “Acid 4 U” that’s streaming below — as well as Auragraph’s upcoming tour dates!
