Acerbic is the new hard and acid techno alias from Ant Wilson, aka Chicago Loop. Ant started DJ’ing and producing back in the early to mid 1990’s and it was on London’s underground illegal rave scene where he first started making a name for himself. 

After many years of touring and making records within that scene, it was around the beginning of the 2010’s that he began to shift his focus slightly and started to concentrate on launching a new alias, Chicago Loop. This alias was created to better represent the slightly more mainstream and club based techno that Ant increasingly found himself playing at that time and as a result, successfully created a solid name for himself within those circles. And this is the way it has stayed to this day, with Chicago Loop taking up the majority of Ant’s creative studio output… until now! 

Poised to take on the acid and hard techno scene with full force, Acerbic is set to launch in 2023 with 2 heavy 4-track vinyl releases on Stay Up Forever’s sister acid label, ‘Acid Artists in Action’, as well as SUF’s flagship techno label, Cluster Records. Plus, there’s plenty more hard-hitting techno to come from Acerbic, marking Ant’s long-awaited return to the acid and hard techno family. Watch this space…
