- It's one of three records coming out soon on Gerd Janson's label.
Gerd Janson's Running Back will release Analogue Acid Project 3, an EP from Tadd Mullinix and Todd Osborn's long-dormant TNT collaboration.
Michigan producers Mullinix (AKA James T. Cotton) and Osborn teamed up as TNT to put out two 12-inches of gritty acid house in 2005 and 2006. (Their partnership goes back even further—they used to craft jungle records as Soundmurderer & SK-1 on their own label Rewind Records.) Aside from a few one-off tracks, the collaboration would scarcely be heard from over the next decade. The pair now return with Analogue Acid Project 3, which features two unreleased cuts on the A-side and a track from each of those early records on the flip. It's due to arrive soon.
Running Back has a couple more records coming out in May. The label will put out two remixes of Unit 2's classic 1992 track, "Sunshine," originally released on the house-focused Underground Resistance offshoot Happy Records. KiNK's take actually surfaced on limited-edition wax late last year—it will get a wider release alongside a rework from Tiger & Woods. After that comes a collaborative EP from German house stalwart Boris Dlugosch and Cassara, titled Traveller, that was the result of the pair "exploiting the latter's extensive synth collection."
