"Acid Tracks" is a 12-inch single released in 1987 by Phuture. It was recorded in 1985 but remained unreleased due to funding shortages. Today it is widely acknowledged as the first track to feature the acid-house squelch sound created with the Roland TB-303 synthesizer, which was originally designed as a bass accompaniment for rock bands, but ended up as a favorite among Chicago and Detroit electronic-music producers in the late 1980s.
