Song of the Day: The Acid Life by Farley “Jackmaster” Funk

So it’s two days back to back tracks for me, let’s see if I can do the whole weekend? It’s another classic dance house one from 1988 and Chicago with Farley “Jackmaster” Funk’s The Acid Life this time. Sometimes he’s been referred to as the king of house dance music, you know? Born as or his birth name is Farley Keith Williams and was DJing as far back 1981 and working in various group etc. Once again like yesterday’s artist he worked under a lot aliases too. The Acid Life is the opening song on his debut solo album entitled No Vocals Necessary. Maybe, this song is most famous known for a much more successfully but uncredited cover by Technotronic re-named/titled as Pump Up the Jam in 1989, you know?

So everyone should be still tripping from yesterday? If you taken it right, which the right amount of Acid to take is always just way too much so your tripping for days! You’ll be still dancing like an idiot and would have done all night, if you did it right? But don’t forget to drink some water, should have really said that yesterday! Oh well, hopefully you’re still alright? So everyone most likely still be playing yesterday’s album on repeat I left you with all night at full volume! Until your peeps you live with, your neighbours or maybe even the police told you to turn it down! Here’s another one for you to play all day and night from bandcamp once again. It’s simple called Farley Jackmaster Funk by Farley “Jackmaster” Funk which seems to be older and newer collection of 13 tracks by him with an extended version of The Acid Life almost at the end:
