Hell yeah, amazing release! Funky super melodic acid! The song structures are well thought out with nice switch-ups, build-ups, intros and outros while keeping the songs tight and compact. Great use of accents and slides, rhythmically superb as well!
Favorite track: Medieval Zone.

'Sweet tracks. Vamos!!' - Roy of The Ravers
Acid Waxa are thrilled to present the debut physical release of AYU Acid aka Sheffield laddies Christopher Rave and Tich Off Me Nut in this Crystal Maze EP of highly infectious, feel good acid bangers!
'Those cheeky herberts at Acid Waxa have invited Ayu Acid to have a right laff paying homage to the finest of 90s game shows through the medium of hi NRG video game acid. The Crystal Maze is a fine muse indeed, with each zone and the Crystal dome itself represented here. "Aztek Zone" is a sprightly, uptempo beast, while "Medieval Zone" ramps up the parping MIDI brass and canned harpsichord to deadly effect. "Crystal Dome Acid" is an appropriately boss-level jacker, while "Future Zone" slows things down and toughens up in remarkable fashion. "Industrial Zone" nudges a little swing into the mix and lets the 303 glide all over the shop' - Juno
