Data Cult Audio 0025 – Chief Acid Officer

Chief Acid Officer is Zachary Hollback, a musician and electronic music producer in suburban Connecticut by way of Chicago and Atlanta. Zachary has been performing and producing live hardware-only sets of machine music since 2001, starting primarily with dancefloor-ready beat-driven techno (under the name Push Button Action Man). As he moved forward his style moved backward, coming to rest on the acid house that he grew up with in the 1980s. His recordings and live sets are a love letter to the classic energy of house music and the sound of the 303, peppered with experimentation, improvisation, and elements of modern electronic music. Zachary recorded this set live on an all-hardware setup especially for Data Cult Audio.
