To put it into perspective: how much progression has there been in the last 3000 years? 15-20 years is the blink of an eye.

I think we're lucky to have experienced a part in music history where technological advances pushed developments in music. We basically went from acoustic to electronic to digital in a single lifetime. Don't think there's more like that in the past 3000 years. And unrealistic to expect that to simply continue, tbh.

That's not a proper perspective: the music of "3000 years" was developing in a different frame altogether, now known as tradition, on a far lesser scale, basically villages. This whole progress thing is a matter of specific Western culture that exists probably for 300-400 years. A lot have happened in those years, in every generation, in far lesser circles of enthusiasts.

Regarding technology -- the fastest technological development happened in these 20 years with global internet, but music got almost nothing out of it. Acoustic to digital is not in any way an unprecedented progress in music terms, it has very little to show musically (arguably). 

Anyway, I don't expect it to continue, simply reacted to question of why "acid" (or any 80/90s genre) is back again and again. Chasing novelty is indeed a trap

I follow a wide array of different genres and styles, but compared to all music that's available and being produced it's a minuscule slice - there is always new music, styles and modes of expression available to explore.

You know if we compare ourselves, if only for the astonishing variety of music available and possible to create now, we live in a golden age of music.

In baroque times, Europe had like 3 or 4 different main styles. French, German, Italian and maybe Spanish or English. Other countries had also their folk style going. It was national thing.

We are lucky. Their literally hundred and hundred of aesthetics. Just think about that for a second.

Also, music technology completely regenerated tonality into new way of exploring it. A minor got a complet rehaul, lots of people thought it was basically dead but synth and electronic instrument unlocked new ways to use it by virtue of its possibilities in timbre. Novelty was once again possible in the simple realm of tonality. It also unlocked harmony and pitch with the possibility of using with perfect exactitude any  sound frequencies you wish! 

Every year new variations are born, in time they merge with each others and create new artists and new genres, its quite amazing to witness.

Sorry but i find this completely absurd. Just take a step back.

The possibilities that recording, electronic instruments and computers have unlocked are unparalleled in the whole history of music. 

The new processes and instruments completely regenerated the musical vocabulary. You forget about it because you were born it it, if you were to take anyone from the 18th century and show them Stockhausen, Xenakis, AFX, Merzbow, Venetian Snares, Tim Hecker it would be like a huge bomb exploding in their face.

There was NOTHING like it before the advent of recording and music technology. It created a whole new universe of musical ideas.

The instrumentation, electronic processes and recording techniques are limitless.

Pre-loafed the downorder, and need to give first props to the original. must've hard it in at least a dozen mixes before to now so nice to finally recogni$e.

The 'chre remix is ace too, sounds like they ground/encased up the original into a hotdog and threw it down a Quaristice hallway

Viberts version surprisingly keeps up the intense feel of the original & drops in some early 90s rave 5th chords

Ae pay tribute by holding onto the main 303/robot hook, but feeding them all through alien filters and adding dopplereffekt style theremins

Mike Dred rinses every last bit of acid from the track as you'd expect.
